Nicola brings positive energy and enthusiasm to her power-packed courses, making data governance both accessible and practical for all – highly recommended. - Nick Mair, Founder DQ Pro

Thanks again for providing such an insightful course. The practical examples you provided were really good, I think everyone can look at data governance literature but hearing how it has worked with real examples was very rewarding, particularly for us. - Stephen Burnett, Data Analyst, StepChange Debt Charity

We are just about to embark on our data governance implementation journey and found Nicola Askham’s course on Getting Started in Data Governance to be a great introduction. We had already started our research and had formed many of our ideas but the course provided us with a structure in how to take these thoughts forward as well as fill in a few gaps that we were missing. The training came at a valuable point in our journey and has allowed us to take some larger steps forward. — Kirstin Hutchinson, Data Governance Manager, Yorkshire Water
