GDPR: A Twitter Q&A with the DMA


We're running a live twitter Q&A session tackling your GDPR questions, Monday 3 July at 2pm. Here's how you can join in.

25 May 2018 should be a date every marketer has at the front of their mind as GDPR becomes fully effective. It will be the largest shift in how we work with data in over a generation.

But it is what you do now to prepare that will make the difference to your, your business and the customers you serve.

So it's a great time to do some fact finding. We want you to get your GDPR questions and queries at the ready, and head over to Twitter on Monday 3 July.

Running from 2pm - 3pm, we'll open a live Twitter Q&A session and answering your GDPR queries will be the DMA's head of preference services, legal and compliance John Mitchison, and external affairs manager, Zach Thornton.

Both have been close to the GDPR legislation throughout its lifecycle, have spoken and written extensively about the subject, and offer proven expertise in helping DMA members prep for the changes to come.

Here's how to take part:

Head to Twitter, on Monday 3 July, 14.00 - 15.00

Follow us on twitter: @DMA_UK

Tweet your query to us @DMA_UK, and use the hashtag: #dmaGDPR

Where we can, we'll respond in real time to your query in a tweet or two.

We also anticipate following-up separately should what you want to know require a more in-depth answer.

See you online.
