The main themes of the new Regulation were presented in a precise but detailed manner and this, coupled with the extensive knowledge and sympathetic manner of the speaker, make the course something special.

Julian was a fantastic presenter, with excellent examples of real-life scenarios making a potentially dry course thoroughly enjoyable.

Dec 9 2019

An interesting, informative and interactive two-day course which provided a clear overview and explanation of the most important changes that we can expect as a result of the 2019/6 Legislation. It is not easy to keep the audience interested while explaining a new law but Julian managed to do this excellently.
