I thoroughly enjoyed the insightful training given by Petruta Pirvan. It is clear she has in-depth knowledge of European data protection law and regulations. She took her time to provide meaningful answers to all of our questions, and helped us prepare for a successful CIPP/E exam. I highly recommend the training offered by Purpose and Means.

I attended Tim’s virtual live online IAPP CIPT course in June, 2021. Tim’s thought-provoking style, real-world examples, and engaging delivery made this an outstanding learning experience. His creative scenarios reinforced the course fundamentals in a way that has definitely lasted long after the course itself. Highly recommended.

I attended Petruta Pirvan’s live online CIPP/E training in June, 2021. The training was very insightful and with Petruta’s support I was able to pass the exam. I highly recommend this training.

I attended live online CIPM training with Tim in March 2021.  He made concepts easy to grasp and provided me with the much needed direction to prepare for the CIPM exam.  I was able to take and pass the exam in April 2021 confidently, and have strengthened my Information Privacy knowledge thanks to him.

I decided to finally take the plunge and do the CIPP/E exam.  I knew I had to do some form of training first and contacted Purpose and Means to enroll.  The training was presented by Petruta in 4 interative sessions and Petruta gave great help when we were stuck.  I couldn't have passed the exams without these sessions as they are tough, confusing questions.  Thanks Petruta!!  I can highly recommend these sessions.

Corné Purcell, CIPP/E, Data Protection Manager at Sysnet Global Solutions, Dublin

I attended an IAPP CIPM class in Dublin in 2017 where Tim Clements was the instructor. Tim combined his expert knowledge of Privacy Program Management with his creativity and hands on approach, that worked very well for me. I would absolutely recommend any training by Tim.

Cor Procee, CEO, PROCEED Data Protection B.V., Netherlands

Tim is an exceptional Privacy trainer. He expertly uses his hard won practical experiences to bring privacy theory to life and takes a real interest in understanding the context people work in. I left Tim's CIPM course in London with the confidence to take (and pass) the IAPP exam and more importantly a number of tools and techniques to start applying with immediate results.

James Archer, Independent Privacy Professional, London

I've been through a lot of training in my career but have never experienced such an effective course as I did in Copenhagen with Tim. His training style is inspirational and the insights he provided were clear and related to real-world business. His deep insight into human nature, and experience addressing organizational issues gave depth to the training. Tim also knows his way around all levels of a business, which makes him an especially great privacy trainer and coach for larger companies.

Eric A. Leavitt MBA, CISO, Proactive A/S, Copenhagen

I have been very privileged to receive live online IAPP CIPM tuition from Tim Clements over four half-day sessions that were extremely informative. The course lined me up nicely to attack the IAPP CIPM exam head-on after a few weeks which I passed with flying colours. Tim is an oracle, use him people - what a resource!

Neil Scott LL.M, LL.B, Data Protection Consultant, Evalian Limited, Bournemouth

Thanks to Tim Clements for giving such valuable input at last year's GDPR-Ready IAPP training in Bucharest. He helped me a lot professionally as a Privacy Program Manager and with passing the CIPP/E and CIPM exams.

Mark Perlitz, Data Privacy Manager, Data4Life, Berlin

Thanks to Tim Clements for everything he taught me about GDPR during the IAPP CIPP/E training in Istanbul.

Simge Selen, Attorney at Law, Kilicli Law Firm, Turkey

I attended Tim's CIPM course in Brussels at IAPP's EDPC 2019. His teaching of the course was enriched with real life examples of his hands-on experience across various organizations. At the end of the course, I found myself equipped with key tools and tips for effectively creating and successfully operationalising a privacy program. Tim is highly recommended.

Tripti Dhar, Partner, Reina Legal, Mumbai

I attended an IAPP CIPM class in Leeds during December 2018 with Tim Clements as the instructor. I can recommend Tim as an exceptional trainer, combining great knowledge and a passion for the subject with practical examples from his extensive experience in data protection.

Ian Saunderson-Darkes, Senior Information Assurance Specialist, NHS, Leeds

Tim, thanks again for the CIPM course in Dublin. For me as a lawyer with little project management experience all your input was very valuable!
