Optional add-ons: let me train your staff too

Kate teaching

As you will learn, one of your most important duties as a Privacy Designate is to provide staff training to make sure your team understands Part X. I can do that for you, too.

I’ve taught more than 3000 Children’s Aid Society staff members from over 10 organizations on Part X issues. I use humour and storytelling to engage front line staff and managers to better understand their role in cultivating a culture of privacy. They will leave feeling energized and focused on what they can do even better.

As an added bonus, you can demonstrate to the Privacy Commissioner that you took privacy seriously and covered the topics that office wants covered in training.
