|Wed 4 Apr 2018
Did you know that new data protection laws are coming into effect in just a few weeks’ time?
And that these laws will have a significant impact on the way businesses communicate with their customers?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force from the 25th May this year and will have many practical implications for businesses of all sizes.
GrowBiz has invited marketing experts Tricia Fox and Fraser Kirk of Perth-based communications company Volpa to run this free event offering advice for any business owners who use email databases, print mailers, telemarketing and even competitions and give aways to promote their business – all of which are affected by the new legislation.
This event is a must for anyone running their own business to ensure they don’t get caught out by the new laws. It is as relevant to sole traders as it is to multinational organisations - who all need to be GDPR ready to ensure that they don’t potentially lose valuable data if they fail to re-obtain consent before the law comes into place and, in so doing, lose the opportunity to communicate with past customers and potential future customers.
Tricia Fox – Managing Director, Volpa
After a stint as a management consultant, entrepreneur Tricia started up Volpa in a spare bedroom of her home in 2002. This ignited the desire to be her own boss, and since that time she has not looked back, with the company continuing to experience tremendous growth, both in terms of client base and staff numbers. In between being the boss, Tricia also manages to hold down other important roles such as being a committee member of the Perthshire Businesswomen’s Network and a fundraising committee member of the ARCHIE Foundation Tayside. Her competitive nature means she loves to win things, clearly evident in the amount of awards Volpa has won over the years.
Fraser Kirk – Head of Publicity, Volpa
Fraser first caught the marketing bug working at his father’s marketing business after leaving school; since that time he has carved out a successful career in the industry and has worked his way up from marketing executive to Head of Publicity at Volpa. Day to day responsibilities include managing and developing the publicity team, managing clients and driving new business. However, he gets most satisfaction from seeing his clients doing well through the strategic and tailored marketing solutions Volpa implements on their behalf.
