Michael prides himself on being an excellent communicator and team player, supporting colleagues across business units, trusting in his proven ability to get the best results, every time.
Michael regularly contributes to peer reviewed publications and speaks at industry events. He also sit on the board of the Data Protection Network and is a member of the IAPP.

- subject access requests, as well as disclosures;
- regulatory responses, such as complaints from the ICO, ASA etc,
