What Delegates have to say

"I have had the honour and privilege to attend a virtual Data Governance training organised by IBP. As someone who is fairly new into the Data Governance space, I found the training to be very informative and highly engaging. The trainer was always very organised and professional in fact, it did not feel like the training was virtual, instead it felt like a face-to-face training set-up, by the level of engagement experienced. I would highly recommend this training to every information professional, and anyone whose looking at setting up their Data Governance structure /strategy in their working environment, and anyone who’s a start-up and looking to implementing Data Governance. The approach was very practical and excellent, from the fundamentals and to providing all the necessary tools."
