  • Nicholas Oliver, founder,

Entrepreneur and marketer Nicholas Oliver will speak about the importance of a consumer-centric data experience and how his latest venture enables consumers to licence their data to brands, in addition to the potential implications of data portability, one of the most important changes introduced by the GDPR. He also founded C8 Asset Management and held the position of global creative technical director at WPP’s Team Detroit for client Ford.

  • Iain Bourne, policy delivery group manager, the Information Commissioner’s Office

In two decades at the Information Commissioner’s Office, Iain has worked across data protection issues, specialising in healthcare, new technology and international issues. His expertise in information sharing, particularly the right to be forgotten and anonymisation has led him to devote his time to post-Brexit data protection in the UK. He will discuss data protection certainties, uncertainties and the ICO's priorities going forward.
