This month, our regular lunchtime networking event will take place on the SECOND Thursday of the month, due to the holiday season.
These informal events will be the ideal opportunity for us to welcome new residents into our community, provide a platform to raise awareness of your business activity and for us to share updates on any upcoming funding calls or social events.
There will also be a themed session at the end of the event, focusing on topics including business support, technology, grant funding and regional activity. This month’s after-networking presentation will be delivered by Vigo IT Solutions focusing on “7 headline things to know and do about GDPR right now”. Read more below*
We have some fantastic companies, academics, students and industry professionals based within our building and within our wider networks, and this lunchtime event aims to get everyone together for a regular chat to better understand what exciting activity is taking place on our doorstep and beyond.
An outline Lunch Club agenda is below:
- 12:30pm – 12:50pm: Refreshments and Networking
- 12:50pm – 1:00pm: Announcements and profile raising opportunities
- 1:00pm – 1:30pm: Themed presentation – 7 headline things to know and do about GDPR right now
Our Lunch Club is open to all companies, especially those located within the Knowledge Quarter and Jelly Liverpool, and we look forward to welcoming new faces into our innovation hub each month.
Please join us for this lunchtime meet-up and start the month by making new connections and raising your profile.
We will be looking for ideas on how best to shape the Lunch Club for the benefit of our members going forwards, so please share your ideas and let us know if you’d like to sponsor one this year.
*Themed Presentation – 7 headline things to know and do about GDPR right now
We’ve all studied and understand the GDPR, right? We’ve all done what we need to for our business and are happy, right?
If your answer to either (or both) of these is ‘erm, not really’, then this half hour intro to GDPR will distil the most important aspects and actions for you and your organisation in an easy-to-get, non-technical session.
We’ll help you to understand the difference between (and responsibilities put upon) data ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’, people’s Rights, what to do when someone asks for a copy of their data or when you have a data breach, as well as how you can do your best to keep yours and other people’s data safe….along with a few other things you really need to know. All delivered with a smile and big chunk of reality – guaranteed.
