An informed workforce is fundamental to implementing effective systems and processes and can be your biggest ally against risk. Support is integral to all our projects, but we also deliver workshops and in-depth training on specific risk-associated issues, either independently, or in partnership with other industry experts.

GDPR - Myths & Mysteries


In conjunction with QSL
Location: Worcester
Date: 12 October 2017
Trainer: Andy Styles

The European Union General Data Protection Regulations (or the EU GDPR) will replace the current UK Data Protection Act. It will impact all organisations, regardless of size and sector and will determine how we manage data both online and offline. The current Data Protection legislation was launched in 1998 and the world has clearly progressed since then with new technologies (tablets, cloud storage), new ways of working (on / offsite) and a greater dependency on 3rd party providers for goods and services.

UK businesses will need to be compliant when the new legislation becomes law on 25th May 2018. This interactive workshop will use business scenarios to introduce the new legislation and will provide an overview of the steps that businesses will need to take to become compliant.

Introduction to Risk Management


Location: Glasgow
Date: 25 October 2017
Trainer: Helen Barge

The practice of managing risk is integral to ensuring our communities are safe, our systems of governance are stable and that our economies and businesses can grow sustainably.

From telecommunications to transport, financial services to public organisations, supply chain to information security, mental health to physical security, risks do not exist in isolation. Sustainable and resilient organisations manage their risks, whether they present threats or opportunities, throughout all parts of their business.

This course is underpinned by IIRSM’s professional standards of competence in risk management which set out the knowledge and competence individuals and organisations need to manage risks effectively at all levels.

Understanding the New General Data Protection Regulations

In conjunction with Coventry and Warwickshire Business Festival
Location: Stratford-upon-Avon
Date: 20 November, 2017
Trainer: Helen Barge; Andy Styles

Break Through the Myths & Mysteries to Ensure Your Business is Ready for 2018.
There is much media hype surrounding the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations, due to be launched in 2018.
The new regulations need to be understood by all organisations. Whilst failure to do so could lead to significant fines, it is more likely that organisations could be excluded from the supply chain or be unable to respond to requests for information from staff, clients and other interested parties.
This session will help you to differentiate between the facts from the fiction and will provide an overview of some of the changes that your organisation may need to make in preparation for May next year
