Get to grips with GDPR at the Festival of Marketing 2017


MRS’ Director of Policy and Standards joins panel to explain new data regulation

The Festival of Marketing is now less than a month away. With more than 200 speakers, workshops and experience rooms, can you really afford to miss it?

One thing you definitely don't want to miss is the GDPR session featuring Dr Michelle Goddard, Director of Policy and Standards at MRS.

Opening the second day on the Multichannel Stage, Dr Goddard will join the expert panel for 'GDPR - everything you need to know today. A holistic view of the new data regulation'.

Topics include:

• Brands, agencies, ad techs, researchers: Do you meet the requirements?

• Why should B2C and B2B businesses pay attention

• How to shape messaging around compliance and share it with consumers, clients and - potentially - the media.

Dr Goddard leads on data protection at MRS and is responsible for promoting and protecting the research sector’s quality standard.

A lawyer by background, she has multiple qualifications in consumer market regulation and advocacy and has held positions at the Legal Services Consumer Panel, Competition Commission, Which? and Consumer Focus.

Safe to say, she knows what she's talking about and will have plenty of smart stuff to share about those four little letters that stand to have such a huge impact on research, marketing and the business world as a whole.
