Milton Keynes businesses turned out in numbers to hear updates on vital issues at the latest Biztech/UCMK Ask The Expert event.
Geoff Snelson, Director of Strategy and Futures at Milton Keynes Council, updated attendees at the event, at UCMK on Wednesday, May 3, on progress on the new university in Milton Keynes, mobility projects taking place around the city and the MK Futures programme.
Andy Chesterman of Bedford-based DAMM Solutions presented on the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will mean companies have to gain valid consent, which must be explicit for data collected and the purposes data is used for. This could have a major impact on businesses' email marketing campaigns.
After the event, Yvette Lamidey, wrote on Twitter (@yvette_lamidey): “Great event with @MKBiztech this evening. Always good to hear about plans for MK. But #GDPR was an eye opener."
