Hosted by

David Smart, Managing Director Softwerx


GDPR has been being talked about for a while now and this seminar is designed for all executives who deal with membership data to provide them with a better understanding of what the implications actually are and to simplify what you can and cannot do with your members data.

Who should attend

Anyone who works in marketing, communciations, membership, community, data managers and directors should attend this seminar for a fact vs fiction presentation followed by an open Q&A to get answers to any questions you still have.

Key takeaways include

  • An understanding of how GDPR will affect data processing
  • How it was developed, what the facts are (vs the fiction)
  • An understanding of the key areas that will affect you
  • Consent and when it is necessary to obtain it
  • What you shouldn’t do

  • You will also leave with new contacts who are going through exactly the same process as you and a greater understanding of what you need to be doing next to work towards compliance.
