Knowledge, News and Views from the ICG - August 2017

John Gilbert updates us on the latest consumer behaviour in the area of financial services - fascinating stuff given the current austerity and impact of Brexit - it will be interesting to see how things develop as the negotiations progress.

In addition we have a useful hints and tips article on GDPR with some good resources to help you prepare for the changes. We also include a short report on the successful summer party with thanks from Paul Hutchins for the support shown for his Refugee charity.

Our usual e-group round up is supplied this month by Mark Lyons, and as ever we welcome a handful of new members this month. The MRS is looking for volunteers to help inspire the next generation of undergraduates, and the MRBA has launched a new website.


Don't forget we have a 'Go To' licence if you want to have a video conference or present a webinar. It is there for you, so do use it! Just drop Lucie an email
