|The seminar aims to bring together key players from across the industry as well as suppliers and stakeholders
As the trade body representing the UK’s Information Destruction sector, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) is holding a seminar and charity networking event, which aims to bring together key players from across the industry as well as suppliers and stakeholders.
Planned to take place at the Hilton Garden Inn, located in Birmingham’s upmarket Brindleyplace, the event is planned for Thursday 4th December 2014 and will consist of a varied programme including educational and motivational presentations, networking opportunities and a charity auction.
The programme includes:
- Presentations from headline sponsors focusing on technological innovations (Global Recycling & Vecoplan), tax, accounting & outsourcing (Cobia) and insurance (Waste Insure) within the information destruction sector
- A question and answer session with a panel of 4-5 representatives from within the sector to facilitate an engaging discussion of some of the key issues facing the industry
- A presentation from Steve Eckersley, Head of Enforcement at the Information Commissioners Office, on the short to medium-term outlook from that department on what they see as the key issues to be addressed. This session will also be followed by questions
- A one hour special keynote address by Olympic athlete and former javelin world record holder, Steve Backley. Steve translates his training and experience in the world of sport into the business arena in a witty, insightful and motivational way
Following the formal presentations there will be an informal drinks reception, dinner and evening entertainment, culminating with an auction of donated prizes in aid of the charity Together for Short Lives, a leading UK charity for children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. With costs remarkably low considering what is on offer on the day, we will be asking all companies attending to donate a prize suitable for the raffle or auction.
Adam Chandler, Chairman of the BSIA’s Information Destruction Section, comments: “As well as the sheer entertainment value, this is also a fantastic networking opportunity and the only UK event of its kind designed specifically for the information destruction sector. All industry practitioners are welcome, and I would encourage all information destruction companies to come along to share best practice, while celebrating the capability and professionalism within our sector.”
