Paul’s wealth of experience and engaging manner helped cut through the complexities of FOI and so appeal to colleagues across the board, many of whom were brand new to the subject.

Client, Isle of Man Government

Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

Very open and approachable style, encouraged discussion. Good mix of exercises and slides… Good use of examples throughout – practical and made it real.

Bromley Council

I wasn’t looking forward to a Monday all-day training session on FOI and SAR! But you made it really interesting, kept my attention and made it relevant to our job role by giving examples and quizzes. I really enjoyed it. Thank you 🙂 And I learnt a lot too!
