drp Launch First drptalk LIVE Webinar

As part of our drptalk brand, which provides education and insight on key industry topics through our online blog, private dining discussions and drpbigtalk, we recently launched our first drptalk LIVE webinar.

This new channel of education provides our clients and other stakeholders with even further insight into future challenges and trends that we face within our industries. The first drptalk LIVE webinar focused on the impending GDPR which will come into effect on the 25th May 2018.

Hosted at our 212 HQ studios in the Midlands, the 1-hour webinar took the form of a TV style panel show, with a number of internal and external experts on-hand to provide invaluable insight. Ian West, Director of Digital Information at Project One, started the webinar with a 20-minute keynote presentation, analysing the challenges that lie ahead, but also the opportunity that these new regulations bring.

Hosted by drp’s Head of Insight & Innovation, Callum Gill, Ian was joined by Nick Roberts from the Risk Factory, Director of drpvideo Dagmar Mackett, and drp Senior Account Managers, Amy Deehan and Matthew Hayward. Posed with a number of questions from the live audience and online viewers, the discussion topics looked at how we and similar agencies currently handle sensitive client data and how we must do so in the future.

This is the first of many drptalk LIVE webinars, along with the blog drptalk.com and drpbigtalk, happening at the end of September 2018.

Covering the topic of GDPR gave our clients invaluable advice, but also confidence knowing that we are putting the correct practices in place to ensure their data is safe and secure.

Callum Gill, Head of Insight & Innovation at drp, commented, “Since launching, our drptalk education channels have proved to be a great success, providing our clients and the general public with insight to take and support their job roles. Adding this new channel was a logical step and, with 100 days to go until it comes into effect, covering the topic of GDPR gave our clients invaluable advice, but also confidence knowing that we are putting the correct practices in place to ensure their data is safe and secure.”
