Marvela GaffudCompliance Officer of Privacy

The course, delivery and speakers are great. As a consultant, this course has taught me to structure the implementation and management of Data Privacy Program.

Jane BarridoManaging Director

Excellent content. Easy to understand as it’s very organized. Because of this workshop, I am now confident in taking the DPO role.

Jeffry ContarciegoTechnology Operations Manager/COP

I have attended several trainings – the CIPM workshop presided by Kevin is the most impressive I’ve had in terms of knowledge I gained on a particular discipline.

JoJo Maliksi

Was able to structure the body of knowledge in a manner that’s easier to follow & understand. Was able to frame Privacy Management (and all jobs to be done) in an applicable & actionable manner. Delivery of knowledge/course was done in a fun & “laymanized” way – no need to be intimidated by “legal jargons”.
