SFA E-Zine – The Tuesday Edition
Looking back at 2017, ahead to 2018 and GDPR

Dear Member, 


After a very successful Business Bytes talk last week in the SFA offices and the launch of our GDPR toolkit, in this week's e-zine we are starting our weekly GDPR tip, and this week we look at 'what is personal data?'


We have a review of the Awards Masterclass that took place with the finalists in Athlone, where the purpose of the event was to immerse the finalists in an entrepreneurial environment to stimulate new ideas for growth.


We tell you how you can avail of €2,500 to get your micro firm trading online.  Read about fixed term and specified purpose contracts and how best to protect your business, as well as taking a look at Ibec’s Europe and Global Focus newest publication.


Book a place on one of our upcoming training courses including Health & Safety, employment law and management development.  Places are filling up quickly for the first Business Connect event, make sure to book you place today.   


As always, we’d love to hear from you about any queries you may have, issues you wish to have raised with Government or other stakeholders and your ideas on how we can improve the business environment for us all. Please contact me on tel: 01 605 1602 or e-mail: sven@sfa.ie or tweet: @SFA_Irl or visit: www.sfa.ie.

Kind regards, 

Sven Spollen-Behrens
