For 25 Years I was in Financial Services and was responsible for business growth and development for AIG in Central & Eastern Europe. My passion has always been on solving lead generation problems and training sales and communication skills to improve individual performance. On returning to reside in the UK, I focused on the use of video to provide economic business growth and training solutions. The requirements of GDPR to train and constantly remind / update people who gather, hold and use personal data has led to my interest in GDPR and providing an automated and low cost solution.
The General Data Protection Regulation requires all persons who handle personal data to undergo awareness training, so they can make the right decisions about the personal data they collect, hold and use and Simon through his company Skills Player has been offering compliance consulting and training since it was announced that GDPR would replace the 1998 Data Protection Act and bring in much stronger regulation.
