This workshop will ensure you are up-to-date with current marketing law. Regardless of Brexit, sweeping changes to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law are on the horizon and you and your clients only have until May 2018 to prepare for them.

This update will demystify many of the myths around how to become more compliant with the new regime and provide you with practical advice on how to get the best value out of marketing databases. Over and above GDPR, this session will also bring you up to date with recent changes in social media marketing and advertising law pre and post-Brexit.
