10.30-11.15 SEMINAR 1:
‘How To Protect Your Business From Ransomware’ If neither you or anybody you know has been caught out by ransomware, chances are you’re asking the wrong questions. Nearly 50 percent of businesses have been hit with ransomware and the American FBI believe more than $1bn will be paid to cyber criminals in 2017.
In this session, you will hear from technology expert Chris Pallett of Bespoke Computing Ltd. Chris has more than two decades of hands-on experience and is a respected Charted Fellow in his area of expertise.
You will be guided through the risks to your business, gaining proactive advice on how to reduce the risk of becoming a ransomware victim yourself, and understanding how to recover your business without paying the ransom.
11.30-12.15 SEMINAR 2:
‘The Missing link between Business and the Environment ‘ … Everyone is greener than they think they are. Green up your business and win more work, stay ahead of the competition and engage with your stakeholders.
12.30-1:00 SEMINAR 3:
What is Auto Enrolment? The law on workplace pensions has changed. Every employer with at least one member of staff now has new duties, including enrolling those who are eligible into a workplace pension scheme and contributing towards it.
This is called ‘automatic enrolment’ because it is automatic for staff – they don’t have to do anything to be enrolled into a pension scheme, but it is not automatic for employers.
Why should I attend? If you have yet to reach your Staging Date you have time to learn the requirements, understand the new terminology, design the most suitable scheme for your business and comply in a timely manner.
Who is presenting? Nick Jones, Principal of Nick Jones Wealth Planning and his team. They have helped more than sixty businesses comply with the auto enrolment demands and are highly qualified Financial Planners. These informative workshops are delivered in a friendly yet professional style.
Who can attend? Business owners or Directors running businesses within Shropshire and the surrounding areas.
1.00-2.00 NETWORKING LUNCH £15.00 (members rate) £30.00 (non members rate)
Network and enjoy a business lunch with exhibitors and guests attending the expo. The informal, yet organised, atmosphere of this event puts everyone at their ease to provide maximum benefit for all attendees.
