Making GDPR Actually Happen

GDPR training, Derby, Nottingham, East Midlands


Already been to loads of GDPR seminars, but still don't know what you're supposed to be doing? Fear not! Sarah Loates has distilled all that scary legislation into a comprehensive document template pack and a clear set of straightforward practical actions that you can take right now.

We’re as tired as you are of all those GDPR courses that overwhelm you with legalise, and frighten you with the consequences of non-compliance, but don’t tell you what you actually need to do.  So instead, this courses focuses on the ‘how’ not the ‘what’ of GDPR. During the workshop we will turn theory into action, guiding you through the practical steps needed for GDPR compliance, some of which you will actually complete during the workshop itself.

With clear post workshop actions for what you need to do back in the business, accompanied by a suite of documents to support you with this task. And naturally, as an HR provider the workshop will focus on some of the specific HR aspects of GDPR. Post workshop, the course includes an optional 1 hour support with your Loates HR Consultancy account manager on your implementation plan and specific questions related to your business.

Company specific courses

We can also deliver this course on-demand should you wish us to run a session reserved entirely for your company. For such dedicated sessions we offer flexible delivery location, minor content customisation, and discounted delegate rates. Alternatively we can combine content from this course with that from others to create a hybrid course, or design an entirely bespoke course to suit the needs of your company.

INCLUDES additional guest ticket

Having run this course previously, we have found that business owners would often like to be accompanied by the person actually responsible for implementing GDPR within their company. So, every course ticket now includes a FREE GUEST PLACE for an additional delegate from the same organisation.

INCLUDES post-course support

The course fee includes one hour of post-workshop support from a Loates HR Consultancy expert who will help you develop your implementation plan and resolve any queries as to how GDPR relates to your business in particular.


Don’t just take our word for it, see what previous delegates had to say about this course:

Comprehensive and engaging

We recently had the privilege of attending one of their training workshops on the subject preparing for GDPR. The workshop was incredibly well planned and delivered in a comprehensive and engaging manner, the workshop included the supply of valuable assets and documents for attendees to take away and use within their business. I have come away from this workshop feeling far more knowledgeable and prepared for the new GDPR legislation.

Full of insight and research

If you’re going to get conned into a seminar on GDPR it might as well be one that is full of insight and research that you’d spend 100s of hours on yourself ! And then a bonus of spreadsheets and templates to make your life so much easier leading up to May !!
