The 5 Voices is a tool developed by GiANT Worldwide (a global leadership consultancy) to help leaders communicate effectively with everyone they lead.  Can you remember the last team or Board meeting you attended?  What did you notice?  Were some people heard more than others even though everyone was speaking?  Did you come...

GDPR: An Employment Perspective

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation which will replace the UK Data Protection Act 1988.
