Having seen how regulation benefits large organisations disproportionately, I founded Data Protection 4 Business to change this.


My happiest working experiences are of working with small and medium sized businesses.


Why? Well, maybe it is because SME’s are the lifeblood of our local and national economies and are committed to ‘doing the right thing’ in order to be successful in their communities.


So, I believe that SME’s deserve practical and affordable services to meet the ever changing Data Protection regulations.


My experience confirms that working with SME’s is infinitely more rewarding than working with large ‘household names’.


With a background in Financial Services and Technology, I have over 20 years of business operations, change management, and technology implementation experience including regulatory compliance.


In addition, my experience in managing multi £m change and regulatory projects has given me an insight into the interaction between data protection, technology, data and operational processes.


My exposure to working within a variety of Banks, Wealth Managers as well as a diverse range of SME’s in Europe, Australasia, the Caribbean and the UK has given me a unique perspective of how business works in a practical sense.


It’s not rocket science, but it needs a good ear, a pragmatic understanding of business, an attention to detail and a will to do the right thing.


So, aside from my experience and in order to demonstrate that I am  also ‘doing the right thing’ to ensure our organisation is able to offer you the best solutions for compliance, I hold the following:  MBA (Distinction), Certified Information Privacy Professional Europe (CIPP/E), Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM), certifications in Programme Management (MSP) and Project Management (PMP & Prince2).


Life is a learning experience for all of us.  Let us help your organisation through your compliance journey.
