GDPR Consultant, DPO and Author of "GDPR a Game of Snakes and Ladders", Director & Owner at Professional Procurement & Project Management

Most small businesses struggle to understand and implement GDPR. I am on a mission to help them.

I do this by providing no nonsense advice which helps them get on with work rather than stop them doing something.

With over 35 years of experience in compliance, governance and oversight businesses come to me with a range of problems and issues.

Everyone is different but whether it is:
• a phone call for advice
• a one off task (like answering a Subject Access Request)
• an audit
• setting specific staff training
• a long term relationship

I will give you the time to discuss and understand your issues and then provide pointers, off the shelf or bespoke solutions and agree an action plan with you.

My goal is to help businesses and individuals across the UK and Europe and those wanting to do business in the UK and Europe.

I have a weekly blog #thursdaythoughts about cyber security matters or topical news items which is released on a Thursday (work permitting).

As an established technical author, instructor and business management specialist I released my latest book “GDPR: A Game of Snakes and Ladders” published by Routledge in February 2020.

I am currently working on the 10th edition of my other book “Building Regulations in Brief” which is Co-authored with Ray Tricker. We expect this will be published in early 2021.
