Piloted in Bristol, the aim of the initiative is to deliver insightful and tailored workshops to support small and emerging businesses in understanding key legal issues, ensuring they are well equipped to respond to the challenges they will be faced with as business leaders.
The first session took place last week at Bond Dickinson’s Bristol office and was moderated by Associate Laura Coombes, who provided advice and guidance around data protection, the change in legislation with the introduction of the GDPR and why this is relevant to businesses.
Ewen Macgregor, Legal Director and Head of CSR in Bond Dickinson’s Bristol office said: “Starting a business from a scratch is undoubtedly a very long and stressful process, especially when it comes to understanding and applying the law.
“We’re delighted to be able to support The Prince’s Trust and their young entrepreneurs through these lunchbox learning workshops which provide tailored and clear legal guidance in a relaxed and friendly environment.”
Jason Stone from The Prince’s Trust added: “This workshop enabled our young people to gain valuable and up-to-date knowledge regarding Data Protection and this is just one of many ways Bond Dickinson is able to give something back to The Prince’s Trust to support our young people.”
