Keith Markham qualified as a Solicitor in 2001 and now works as a freelance training consultant.
Initially working in private practice, in 2004 he moved in-house at the BGL Group, a major insurance intermediary that numbers Budget and comparethemarket.com among its brands. During his time there Keith advised extensively on all areas of data protection. He also conducted contract negotiations of a complex nature, often with major blue chip companies.
In 2007, Keith joined BPP Professional Education, one of Europe’s leading providers of professional development training. He worked there as both an in-house lawyer dealing with data protection and commercial contracts and also as a presenter of training courses before ultimately deciding to specialise in delivering training and becoming a freelance training consultant in 2009.
Drawing on his considerable experience Keith has designed and delivered a wide variety of training for BPP and other providers as well as for his own clients in the commercial law field. In particular he teaches topics relating to data protection and commercial contracts to lawyers and non-lawyers alike.
He is currently involved in a number of GDPR compliance projects and is the author of ‘A Practical Guide to the General Data Protection Regulation’ published by Law Brief Publishing.
Keith also has more than fifteen year’s experience as a trustee and volunteer with a number of charities working in the UK and overseas. Currently, in his spare time, he visits and audits projects in Honduras on behalf of an aid charity and is also the secretary to the charity that runs the Peterborough Polish Saturday School.
