Feedback from customers

The GDPR support provided by Mark and the team at Hope and May has been exceptional. The experience and ongoing guidance provided has enabled us to move the business forward with confidence.

Sarah Wilkinson, COO at Keylu

As a research and evaluation agency we deal in some highly sensitive data collection sets and the integrity of our processes and systems is paramount. Mark has always delivered … I have no qualms about strongly recommending Hope & May.

Brian Warren, COO at Dartington Service Design Lab

I had never attended such a well structured and insightful training before … I'm going to bring back what I have learned to my charity, and hopefully raise our standards around data protection and GDPR. I couldn't be more grateful.
