Our S.H.I.E.L.D. Ambassadors are people who work in their local areas promoting the benefits of S.H.I.E.L.D. Membership to Business owners.
Ambassadors work with and build on the large network of contacts and supporters within the existing support network for S.H.I.E.L.D. These contacts include Local and District Councils, Council Growth Hubs, Chambers of Commerce, Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) Business Innovation Centres (BICs) and many other Business Networking organisations.
NB: S.H.I.E.L.D. Ambassadors do valuable education and information work with business owners, GDPR Compliance is compulsory for all businesses and the penalties for non compliance are extremely severe, they include prosecution, large fines, Director Disqualification and adverse Publicity on the Regulators website.
We have supplied an approved Online 'Introduction to GDPR Course' for the Open College Network, which promotes staff training and a greater understanding of Data Protection generally. The Course also generates interest in the S.H.I.E.L.D. programme nationally, through interaction with our Ambassadors.
Ambassadors organise Workshops and speak to new and existing clients at various events regarding Data Protection, the latest news from the Regulator and Membership of the S.H.I.E.L.D. programme.
Ambassadors help members to improve their own business relationships by recommending and connecting S.H.I.E.L.D. Holders to work with each other by sourcing compliant businesses across the network.
It is the Ambassador's primary role to ensure all the businesses in their area become aware of their responsibility to be compliant under the GDPR and other Data Protection Legislation.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Ambassadors are chosen because of their experience talking with people at Business owner and Board level, they are confident communicators, who are at ease with explaining complicated subjects in straightforward terms.
Our existing Ambassadors have been drawn from many previous walks of life. They all have something in common, which is a desire to Mentor and advise business people, giving excellent customer service and ensuring their clients benefit from greater knowledge and support about Data Protection.
