GDPR – Making it Actually Happen

Friday 27th July, 08:30 - 13:00

GDPR training, Derby, Nottingham, East Midlands


£495 + VAT : Includes breakfast, template document pack, and post-course HR support. Now with FREE GUEST PLACE!

Course Overview

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 LoatesHR account manager on your implementation plan and specific questions related to your business.

Course Content

  • GDPR overview: Purpose, principles, changes
  • How do I demonstrate compliance: accountability and GDPR roles
  • Start mapping your data and records of processing
  • Know your lawful processing basis – identify and understand which lawful reason to use to justify processing the data
  • Identify the different companies ‘data processors’ you share data with and what you need from them
  • What should be included in a privacy notice?

  • Data breaches and how to manage these

Document Pack

A comprehensive document pack is supplied on an encrypted USB stick for you to use within your business, and you’ll begin working with these during the course itself. Prepared by the experts from LoatesHR, these fully editable Word document files will save you hours of research and typing pain.

  • GDPR workbook – A data mapping template – to help you identify by business function (e.g. marketing, HR, Finance) the data which you hold, for legacy and future data.
  • Data protection policy

  • Managing subject access request policy and template letters

Post-course Support

Post workshop, the course includes an optional 1 hour of support with your LoatesHR account manager on your implementation plan and specific questions related to your business.


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.


Breakfast is included, in addition to tea & coffee during the day.

Your trainer Sarah Loates is a highly qualified HR practitioner, with over 20 years of experience dealing with HR and employment law issues, within both owner managed SMEs and large multinational corporations.

As a result, she is able to bring theory to life with numerous interesting real-world examples, and show you the best ways to effectively deal with the types of tricky HR and employment law issues that you’re actually likely to face in practice.

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

“Having been on two GDPR training sessions which failed to inform how to implement it, this training from Sarah Loates of LoatesTraining was all and more that you could ask for. Clear, concise, interactive, step by step, Q&A to show exactly how to implement all that is needed to be compliant. Added to this was a toolkit of templates and slides/information to ease the process, given on an encrypted pen stick. Leaving the session armed also with the facility of after support, I can thoroughly recommend this training and trainer.”
Maria Hanson MBE, Founder, Me & Dee Charity, Derby

“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 !!”
Dr Bill Peacock, Director, GRM Development Solutions, Derby

“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.”
Craig Barker, Director, Koobr, Derby

“You’ve got such a great delivery style Sarah and so knowledgeable that I think everyone should come on your courses! I am your number 1 fan 😊”
Rachel Hayward, Director, Ask the Chameleon, Derby
