Another free GDPR course for MIA members: be prepared for the looming changes


We had 40 people from the industry attend the ‘sold out’ GDPR Training Course we held at Laytons Solicitors in London in October 2017. Indeed, we actually had a waiting list for places- something of a record!

We saw an excellent mix of retailers, distributors and publishers and we all learned a huge amount during the excellent training given by Michael of Laytons LLP.

We are pleased to announce that we will be teaming up with Laytons again and are running another GDPR course next month, ready for the looming changes coming into effect in May.

The date of the course is Tuesday 20th February 2018. The agenda is as follows:

  • 10.00 – coffee (and breakfast snacks) and registration
  • 10.30 – GDPR training presentation, plus Q&A session
  • 12.30 – finish

The venue is Layton’s solicitors – its right next to City Hall on the river Thames by London Bridge. The address is 2 More London Riverside, London SE1 2AP. Here’s a link to a map on their website

The session will be FREE to MIA Members and only £149 + VAT to non-Members.

If you would like to come along, please email as soon as possible, places are already filling up!

Laytons also have an office in Manchester. If this would be easier for you to reach than London is, please do let me know. If we get enough interest, we can also look at arranging a GDPR course in Manchester.

Don’t forget – our legal helpline partners, Croner, are also running a free important employment law and GDPR course for our members on Tuesday 6th February. This course is specifically designed for local business owners and directors to help them tackle the day-to-day challenges that employing people brings, and covers how GDPR impacts employment law.
