Aren’t we all glad that GDPR day is finally here? One possibly overlooked positive of your inbox being obliterated over the last few days: you can now avoid going to meetings for months on end because you are ‘too busy reviewing privacy policies that people have sent me’.
After ten days on leave I’m absolutely drowning in (771!!) emails – if you’ve sent something over to be included in the newsletter and I’ve not replied or included it this week I’m not ignoring you, I just haven’t caught up yet. Too busy skipping meetings by reading privacy policies…
Enjoy the news and have a super bank holiday weekend.
No messing around with this week’s newsletter because I’m on annual leave from 12:30pm today for ten days and my to-do list is rivalling the entire Harry Potter series in length. And yes, ‘set smug out of office message’ is item number one on the list. I’ll probably then just red flag everything else on the to-do list and go away and hope that nobody notices.
This means that there will be no newsletter next week. If you’ve got any news in the meantime tweet it over to our crack social media team (@schsocent) and they’ll give it a retweet.
Have a good few weeks
Yep, today is Star Wars Day. Fortunately for you I watched Star Wars far too long ago to laden this newsletter with too many bad puns and quips about Jedis and Darth Vader so you’ve had a luck escape. My own appreciation of the Star Wars series was somewhat tainted when I forced my Dad to come and watch ‘The Phantom Menace’ in New York with me for us to sit there for two hours suffering the horror of Jar Jar Binks. Because I’d made such a big deal about going to see it I then pretended that I’d really enjoyed the film – I’m pretty sure Dad made a mental note that day to cut me out of his will and leave it to a donkey sanctuary instead.
On with the news…
