Start Your GDPR Project NowStart Your GDPR Project Now 

Date: Choose a Workshop Date or request 1-2-1 date
Venue: Burnley (Workshop) or 1-2-1 at your office
Presenters: Richard Singleton and Claire Akbar (Smart-Test Ltd)

Every business no matter what size, type or age has to comply to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

Businesses have until 25th May 2018 to ensure they have applied understanding and processes to be GDPR compliant or face potential fines of 4% of their global turnover or up to €20Million (which ever is greater).

Businesses have been able to prepare for the new European data regulation since 2016 but the regulation can be very confusing for business owners to understand. That means most businesses have put this, but time is running out.

In this hands on, sleeves rolled up half day session, you will not only learn what GDPR is and how it effects your business, you will actually start your GDPR project using our portfolio of GDPR templates, documentation and specialist advice.

Session format:

  • To give you the knowledge to assess how you and your customers are affected.
  • To demystify all the information out there and strip it back to what is relevant to you.
  • To get you started on your compliance project and understand what is required thereafter.
  • To give you the means and tools to become GDPR compliant including templates and documents.
  • Keep compliance documentation as simple as possible (without cutting corners!).
  • To leave the session having started your GDPR project
  • LIMITED TO 8 PLACES

Date: Register for next date
Time: 09:00 – 12:30
Presenter: Richard Singleton

If video killed the radio star; smartphones are butchering business…

How many times have you looked at your Smartphone today?

How many times could your employees have done the same? Not only that, could they, during working hours have taken a cheeky photo or video of a daft prank on or off site and posted to social media.

The smartphone is both helping and hindering businesses in many ways. As great as quick and easy access to emails and the internet is, it can be counter-productive, increase stress levels and be destructive to your brand.

In this presentation Richard will highlight how seemingly harmless fun can become extremely dangerous to individuals and the company.

How your business can be exposed by the smartphone revolution through gamification, stupidity and social media
What drives employee’s to do what they do
Considerations to create a positive solution and combat the problem
