Win a golden ticket! Panopticon Podcast Competition #2

If our new episode wasn’t enough of a Christmas present, we’re delighted to announce another chance to win a “golden ticket” to our Information Law Conference on 14 March 2024!

Hidden among Robin’s insights about collective litigation of data/privacy claims is a line of (who else?) Gene-Wilder-as-Willy-Wonka dialogue. If you recognise it, email the quotation and time-stamp to by the end of next week to be entered into our prize draw. (See below for T&Cs and privacy notice.)

Congratulations in the meantime to Ian Cutting-Jones (South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust) who recognised our Die Hard reference (“And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer”) and won our first competition! Welcome to the party, pal.

Honourable (and consensual) mentions to Paula Williamson (Partner, Privacy & Data Protection Solicitor at Excello Law, and Director of Content at Tenjin), Sadaf Anwar (Solicitor at City of London Corporation), Ben Fearnley-Sander (lawyer with the Government Legal Department) and Sam Grimley – all of whom got the correct answer but narrowly missed out on the prize.

We wish all our readers and listeners a joyful and reinvigorating festive season, and look forward to catching up in the New Year!
