login A Practical Guide to GDPR - Signpost 2 Grow - Signpost 2 Grow

This free event provides an intensive look at how will GDPR affect your marketing practices and the data you hold on Customers, Employees and other Businesses. 

New data protection and privacy regulations are coming in May 2018 and there are significant changes ahead for marketers in all organisations. These new regulations do not just affect marketing to consumers, but business to businesses too and the fines for non-compliance are significant. Hoping that it will all go away is not an option.

With no time to waste we have partnered with some fantastic speakers and Cambridge Marketing College to bring you a discussion on the various ways GDPR will need to be implemented within your organisation at a practical level.

This half-day seminar will be packed full of vital information on how you can prepare your business for the new legislation. With Steve Bax (CMC fellow & Managing Director of Bax Interaction Limited) covering how GDPR will affect your Marketing/Communication activities, followed by Donnie MacColl (HelpSystems) who will go further on how GDPR affects the more general data your organisation holds on customers, employees and other Businesses.
