The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the replacement for the outdated Data Protection Act and it takes full effect in May 2018. More robust data protection and privacy laws will finally allow private individuals to be in control of their own data, and how it is used.
In brief, it means organisations must gain clear consent via opt-ins to be able to use people’s data, such as an email address, for specific purposes which they must outline. It will affect practically every department in every business in the UK. For example, if you are involved in marketing, every individual on your mailing list must give their consent before you can continue to mail them. Penalties for breaching the rules will be tough.
It is time to prepare NOW! Our GDPR workshop will bring you and your organisation up to speed on what you need to do before the 25th May deadline.

Interactive workshop: Great management – and how to become a great manager!
Those who accept management jobs take responsibility for much of the wellbeing and fortunes, not only of those they employ, but also of their families and loved ones! Yet, research shows that many managers struggle to meet that demand – many employees are not engaged and over ⅔ of people leaving jobs say it is something their managers did that triggered them to leave. This is probably the reason why productivity so often falls well short of expectations. So how do you bring out the best in people?
Based on over 30 years of research and experience, in this upbeat session, Clinton explains in practical terms what you can do to become a great manager and unleash potential and drive up performance.
