We had the first workshop from a new trainer this week – barrister Peter Marcus, who turned out to be brilliant.
As it was in Norwich, I went along at lunch time to find a very engaged group, laughing at Peter’s jokes and asking lots of intelligent questions.
Peter is one of those people who loves training and he tells me he is willing to travel to do it (he lives in the North).
As he is a specialist housing barrister, he can cover pretty much anything in housing law – so if your organisation needs any in house training – get in touch.
