Event Trainer

Julia Bradburn
Julia qualified as a Fellow for the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives in 1999 and has worked in Local Government Licensing since 2004.

Julia specialises in a wide range of licensing from caravan sites to animal welfare and had been delivering training with the IoL since 2005.

Julia Bradburn was a great communicator and an excellent trainer. She had obvious in depth knowledge of animal welfare as she was readily able to answer any questions asked. Julia encouraged delegates to participate and I would highly recommend the Animal Welfare course by Julia to others
