Knowledge, News and Views from the ICG - March 2019

This month we have various 'hints and tips' articles - topics covered include data protection compliance, HMRC making tax digital and conference speaking tips. All of these are in our 'templates and resources' section on the website, designed to be a repository of easy to access knowledge for members. If you have any ideas for additional content, or would like to add to an existing article then just email me (

We also take a look at the contents of the new Basket of Consumer Goods published this month by the ONS - always an interesting insight into what products are on the up (and which are on the way out!). John Gilbert publishes his latest Consumer Confidence Index which takes an in-depth look at Brexit (and whether people feel the referendum was the right decision).

Over the next month or so we are running various events - webinars and networking events, and we are taking a stand at the B2B Expo at the ExCel center - running on the 27th and 28th March. Do pop along to see us if you are there.

As you are aware, the current website is now two years old and we are aware that we need to keep it up to date, particularly regarding ever changing security demands. We are currently taking the opportunity to review our security protocols, and take a look at improving how the website works, its functionality and appearance. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, or would like to be involved in this process, please let us know.


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
