It’s an incredibly important regulatory shift, companies will need to look at the data they collect and the data the hold, and do everything they can to ensure they comply with GDPR regulations. It is as if privacy is the new black, and has to become a key focus for company’s marketing.And Tim will be the chair of the Roadmap for Marketing theatre and will be speaking for 20mins at the start of the latest, GDPR Summit London, Bishopsgate, near Liverpool Street, supported by Henley Business School, and to be held on 30th January.When he isn’t giving conference delegates the benefit of impressive knowledge in this area, he helps marketing clients – agencies, in-house corporate teams, services firms and platforms – by combining his marketing and operational skills and technical and regulatory knowledge. The purpose: the transformation of their operations to deliver strategic and tactical solutions to tackle the unique challenges marketing faces today.And of course, to help clients identify and embrace future opportunities that GDPR will bring.In a recent editorial, The Economist magazine described data as the new oil. In the age of artificial intelligence, data is becoming the tool for enabling companies to get closer to their customers.If done right, this can create a stronger relationship between customer and company, but to achieve this, trust is imperative.GDPR makes it essential to comply with certain standards in order to meet the requirement of the regulation. Good business sense makes it just as essential to apply these same certain standards, creating trust.Tim will tell us more at the GDPR Summit London.
