“I attended the Chamber’s Collaborate HR Forum to learn more about GDPR. We feel the kind of support Collaborate is offering to businesses both practical and straightforward. There is sector-specific advice to gain plus an opportunity to apply for grants supporting capital investments.

Having seen what was on offer through the programme we decided to extend our research and focus on sectors that are aligned to project initiatives. “

Gemma Redden, Head of Marketing and Communications, Access Generation Ltd.
