Feedback from previous participants:

“I have taken a number of actions to raise at the next Board meeting. I hadn’t appreciated the depth of my obligations in this space”. 

“The training genuinely had quite a profound impact on the Board and was exactly what was needed.”

“Informative, clear and very well presented. Challenged my/others assumptions about risks and vulnerabilities”.

“Wasn’t too sure what to expect, I thought it would be a very dry subject, but it was surprisingly enjoyable!”
