Media Release : 13 February 2018

Find out why at the Wealden Business Breakfast on Tuesday 27 February.

The General Data Protection Regulation is a major new law which comes into force on 25 May, setting new rules for the way businesses and organisations store and use personal data. 
Heavy fines await those who get it wrong…. but the changes can also provide opportunities for growth. David Jamieson, of The Jamieson Consultancy, will be speaking to dispel some of the myths surrounding GDPR, and provide a tool-kit to help businesses make the most of what it could offer. He will then take a question and answer session. 
Mr Jamieson’s insights are backed by 20 years of experience working with manufacturing and consumer electronics companies, the service, retail and hospitality sectors as well as a number of market-leading publishers. The Jamieson Consultancy also manages fully-audited circulation lists in the UK and abroad.
“The Genera Data Protection Regulation will mean a major change in the way businesses store data about their customers and staff and use circulation lists,” said Councillor Roy Galley, Cabinet member for Economic Development at Wealden District Council. “I would urge any Wealden business, which is not entirely sure what GDPR means for them, to make sure they send a representative to our February Business Breakfast.”

The event starts from 7.15am, with a cooked breakfast served at 7.30am and the main presentation beginning at 7.50am. There will be  time for networking afterwards.
