Join us on July 19th at 2pm EST for an important webinar on the recently enacted European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new rule mandates changes on the way your sales team prospects for customers and will impact the process of how your marketing activities are managed. In the B2B world, salespersons meet potential customers often at a trade show, they exchange business cards or information and when they come back to the office they add the contacts to your company’s contact lists. This new regulation now changes that process. Your company needs to comply with the GDPR if:

  • You do business in the EU, e.g., have customers who reside in the EU
  • You have the potential of interacting with customers, vendors and others who reside in the EU
  • You collect our use personal data from EU residents, or
  • You have an office in the EU

  • How a one-sided approach to leadership focused on “managing” Millennials is grossly insufficient, resulting in an ability to attract and retain critical young talent;
