  • How to secure appropriate resources
  • Handling conflicts of interest
  • Developing a communication strategy
  • Developing leadership and conflict resolution skills
  • Being an agent for change
  • Developing a systematic/programme approach to compliance
  • Dealing with the Information Commissioner

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of their role
