ISSUE IN BRIEF

As Briefing sails past the ‘seven-year itch’, this issue covers one of the biggest risks in business – fear of taking one. Also, building an alternative to incumbents, onboarding apprentices, how to get your information governance GDPR-ready, alternative business structures and more.

Inside this issue – TLT, Database, Freshfields, Brodies, PwC, KPMG, Bond Dickinson, iManage, and Saïd Business School

WORTH THE RISK

Carol Sawdye, global chief operating officer at PwC, says businesses – like their people – need to try to take some chances to grow and fulfil their potential by questioning your status quo.

READY AS IT GROWS

Nick Roome, UK head of legal services at KPMG, says his is a business that’s learning as it grows. As we’ve heard before, life in the arms of a Big Four ABS offers another opportunity to collaborate on winning and managing work for clients. And having spent 15 years as a corporate lawyer in traditional firms – most recently a partner at DLA Piper – Roome is well placed to spot the difference.

COUNTDOWN WITH CONFIDENCE

Ian Raine, director of product management at iManage, says time is running out, with under a year to go, to get ready for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. As the clock ticks on toward the enforcement date, the question remains: will professional services firms in the UK be able to meet GDPR’s numerous requirements
and ensure compliance?
