I have attended many GDPR events and Gerry's has been the first one where you really did what you set out to do at the beginning of the day. I walked away feeling more confident, competent and definitely compelled to do more on this area in my organisation. I am hugely lucky whereby I have been able to carve out the time to do a lot of the necessary bits over the last 2 plus years and I do have a lot of the required policies & procedures & practices in place already but looking at this through your eyes brings it so much more to life. I know understand more of the why I am doing it and don’t just see it as a chore. Thanks so much, it really was a great day. M. Scully Dyslexia Association of Ireland

It's decreased my tendency to be worried by many over-the-top stories of what was involved in GDPR. S. Dwan, Board Member, Missionary Society of St Columban

The training was practical and to the point. Gerry cut through a lot of the red tape to tell us exactly what we need to know. L. Pasley, Board Member, UCDVO
