FMCentral Takes Data Legislation to the Slopes

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 2018. But why all the fuss about data protection?
On Wednesday 22nd March 2017, FMCentral welcomed facilities management professionals to find out how GDPR will affect their business. Set against the backdrop of the slopes at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead, the event was a great success, with informative speakers. Everyone left with a lot to think about before May next year!

Speakers at the event included:

  • Matthew Holman, Principal and SCL (Society for Computers and Law) Accredited IT Lawyer from EMW Law
    Matthew guided attendees through the updates to the Data Protection Act 1998 – now called the General Data Protection Regulations – and how this change in the law regarding electronic communications and personal data affects everyone.
  • Jonathan Lane, Director and Pete Stevens, Associate from SR Consulting
    Jonathan provided an overview of some of the practical issues businesses need to consider to see whether they are currently complying with the law or need to make some changes now or in the near future for GDPR.
  • Ian Brown, Managing Director from The Snow Centre
    Ian took us through the challenges faced by The Snow Centre running such a unique sports centre and how they have overcome these challenges.

“Data is such an integral part of our lives; whether as a holder of data for our businesses, on behalf of clients, or even other companies holding data about us! With huge potential fines for those that don’t comply with the law, I think we all owe it to ourselves to be informed – to protect ourselves, our businesses and our clients’ data that they entrust to us.” Karen Moule, Co-founder of FMCentral.

So, who is the team behind FMCentral?

FM Central TeamFMCentral is a partnership between Enterprise Marketing Solutions and Spaghetti Junction.
Karen Moule, Enterprise Marketing’s founder and owner, has just celebrated 10 years at the helm of her multi-award-winning strategic marketing agency, focused on the facilities management, manufacturing and education sectors. Having identified there was very little opportunity in the South Central geographic area for FM professionals to find advice, support or simply a forum to discuss issues affecting the industry, she approached Spaghetti Junction to create a partnership and fill this gap.

Sarah Bentley and Gavin Deane, co-founders of Spaghetti Junction have developed an in-depth knowledge of the skills and training landscape. As objective and independent training advisors, Spaghetti Junction help you find your way through the maze of offerings and funding options to maximise your workforce talent.

We’re also delighted to announce This Week in FM as our media partner; helping us raise our voice and champion the sector as broadly as we can.
