GDPR - A Comprehensive Introduction 24/07/2018 - Hybrid Delivery

This course is a hybrid live classroom course delivered via online classroom live, allowing delegates to interact with expert presenters and partake in the classroom discussions from either a computer or mobile device. 

How is it delivered?

We will have a group of delegates attend a course as usual. In the room there will be a webcam pointed at the presenter only and a microphone picking up the audio. There will also be a small number of online people watching the broadcast in real time. Questions from the online people will come into the physical room via speakers and questions from the room will be picked up by the microphone in the room. So both audiences can contribute to the discussion making it a richer learner experience.
