Programme Officers

Programme Officers

Persona has a pool of fully trained Programme Officers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience, together with the independent role, which is so important, especially with increased scrutiny caused by the Human Rights Act. They all have constant office back up and extensive up-to-date experience of dealing with members of the public, objectors, barristers and other legal/professional representatives, so there is always somebody available.


Witness Training

Expert Witness Training

We, in conjunction with Professional Solutions, offer a two or three day Training Package which has the objective of helping the experts present their evidence as competent professionals who inspire confidence in the Inspector and impart real credibility to their evidence. The Training is presented by two specialist Barristers, a professional proof writer and retired Planning Inspector. The course includes a "Mock Inquiry".

Inquiry Web Hosting

For several years Persona has been providing a dedicated "independent" website for most Inquiries that it has been involved with. The sites have been universally welcomed and have proved a valuable tool before, during and after the Inquiry.
