Breakfast seminar with Helen Iles, Hugh James

Tuesday, 06 June 2017 07.30am to 09.30am

The Caerphilly Business Forum is pleased to welcome Helen Iles to the Borough.

This event will be taking place on Tuesday 6th June at Business and Innovation Centre, Tredomen Business Park at 7.30am.

This is the first in our set of new breakfast seminars where we aim to give back to Caerphilly by providing insightful and helpful seminars that can help businesses throughout Caerphilly.


About the seminar:

The murky waters of data management have always been tricky to navigate, underpinned by the often complex undercurrents of the Data Protection Act. Against the backdrop of the legislative framework, the use of social media both inside and outside of the workplace has implications for all of those who lead and manage staff in terms of productivity and liability.

Which voice is it your employee uses when creating a social media post? Professional? Personal? Does it matter? Attendance at this session is essential in order to understand the legal obligations your organisation faces regarding data and digital communications, and how those obligations are practically managed on a day to day basis.

About Helen:

Prior to achieving accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development in training practice and assuming responsibility for Hugh James' internal and external training functions, Helen was a solicitor in the Employment and HR Services Team for six years, advising on a wide range of employment law issues. The success of the training products Helen created and delivered whilst practising as a solicitor revealed her passion for quality, innovative learning and subsequently lead to her appointment as Hugh James’s Head of Training.

In a training capacity, Helen and her team are responsible for all aspects of the firm’s learning and development. Externally, Helen and her team also design, deliver and evaluate training to clients across a range of industry sectors on a broad spectrum of topics including personal and management development, employment law and human resources best practice.


This event is open to members and non-members of the Forum and marks the start of a new series of events.
