Online Training

My Getting Started in Data Governance course is now available online.

In four modules of approximately one hour each, this course provides you with all the information you need to make well informed choices about implementing your data governance programme so that your initiative is successful.

You will learn the unique and proven Askham Data Governance Methodology which will give you a structured approach to designing and successfully implementing a data governance framework that is right for your organisation but with the ability to work through the content at your own pace, without the expense and inconvenience of travelling to attend the training.

In keeping with my coaching approach, all students participating in this course will have access to me to ask questions as they work through the course. The level of support will depend on which package a student registers for:

Bronze - access to an online forum for your questions and discussions

Silver - participation in four one hour group coaching sessions, plus access to the online forum

Gold - four thirty minute personal coaching sessions in addition to access to the group coaching sessions and the online forum.


"This training was exactly what we needed, when we needed it. We needed to totally rework our data governance practices (or lack of practices) and this combination of training and coaching was perfect for our core data governance team. The content of the training really set the foundation for us. Nicola’s guidance in key areas helped confirm a lot of our thinking as well as avoid a few pitfalls."  Ron Webb, Executive Director, APQC
"Best In Market - Easy and quick to get head around Data Governance right from inception to implementation." Venkata Valluri, Data Manager, Telstra
