KoffeeKlatch Events


Practical sessions on GDPR, IR35, contracts, associates and more

Upcoming Events

Sorting out compliance and contracts does not have to be dull or scary.   Nor does learning new skills to help you communicate clearly and securely.

In a world where everything is constantly changing, you need to make sure you are protecting your business whilst still delighting your customers.   

All our KoffeeKlatch events are designed to get you beyond just surviving into thriving.   

You can use the law as one of many tools to protect you and help your business grow.  All our events are packed full of useful information and many are regular attenders. 

KoffeeKlatch live, with Jo Brianti - Children's Data

September marks the beginning of enforcement of the new UK rules on handling children’s data.

Do you know what you have to do if you are handling children’s data?

Do you know what you have to do if you are collecting data directly from the under 18s?

From policies to security many micropreneurs are oblivious to what GDPR means.  It can seem all too complicated for an after schools club or a parenting skills coach.  But it doesn’t have to be.

Join our KoffeeKlatch conversation and start getting those ducks in a row

KoffeeKlatch live, with Annabel Kaye - Does a new VA need a contract?

Is it OK to work without one?  Is it OK to just copy and paste a few points from other people?

If you don’t know your way around the law you can get really unstuck.  Having an American set of terms for working in the UK or ignoring the EU if you are transferring or viewing information about EU citizens, can be a mistake.  And let’s not forget that tax comes in too at some point.  

In this informal but informative hour, Annabel Kaye of KoffeeKlatch will be taking you through what you should be thinking about.
