Come along to our business networking breakfast meeting here at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Thursday morning. 

#ThirdThurs is a FREE monthly business networking breakfast event that takes place right here at our stadium, with the next one taking place on Thursday 15 March.

The meetings take place from 7.30am until 9.00am, nice and early so you don't miss too much time at work and we even provide you with a free breakfast sandwich and coffee. The events are FREE and anyone who runs or works in a business locally is welcome to attend.

Every month we enjoy a short 15 minute presentation, which we hope will benefit you in your business. This month we'll welcome Mark Bennam from Genesis Managed Services who'll be telling us all about GDPR. Mark has been a Consultant in the IT security sector since the early 1990’s, and now works as a Special Security Advisor to a number of companies throughout the UK. GDPR? Yes four letters that have created more hot air than even Brexit and a subject about as exciting as watching paint dry! But . . it comes into force in May 2018, and fines for non-compliance can rise to 4% of a Company’s Gross Profit.  All businesses need to be aware of is that for the first time ‘Data Processors’ become liable and that’s a significant change many have not even realised. GDPR doesn’t have to be a nightmare and this is an opportunity to ‘cut through the Wheat and the Chaff’ in an informal environment aimed at SME’s. Marks’ talk may not be able to stop you having to re-paint that wall  but he will help you avoid having to watch the paint dry after  doing it! This talk is a common sense look at GDPR and aims to dispel many of the myths surrounding it. The talk will examine intelligent solutions to empower SME’s to adapt their current working practices and systems to comply with GDPR positively, without damaging their profitability.’  The rest of the morning is yours to mingle and make some valuable contacts.
