New information. New opportunities?

Your clients have never been more exposed to new information. However, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to spot the opportunities and the risks within that information. Your clients need the right adviser to guide them through these risks.

That’s where we come in. Our team of experts are here to help you to understand the key themes and how you can communicate them to your clients.

Come along to our breakfast seminar to see how we cut through the noise and help your clients focus on what really matters.

Our themes for the morning will be:

Disrupt – Paul Hayes, our IT Solutions Director, will look at the disruptive effect of cyber-attacks and social media
Lead – Lee Brocklehurst from PKF Cooper Parry’s Restructuring team, will look at different leadership types and communication styles and how the owner managers and their advisers need to adapt as the business evolves
Make Life Count – Paul Maurice, company director, will talk about his recent experience with PKF Cooper Parry and how we added value to his business

Businesses like yours are becoming increasingly dependent on IT and technology, but is your cyber security up to scratch?

Join us at our Cyber Security Seminar on 11 May to better understand the importance of data protection and the consequences of failing to meet the new General Data Protection Regulation that takes effect next year.

What will you learn?

Experienced hackers will perform live demos showing how servers and mobile phones just like yours are being hacked all over the country…and just how quickly and easily it can be done!

IT Security specialists, Sophos, will show you how you can take the necessary steps to prevent breaches to your data and Datto will discuss the importance of proper business continuity solutions for if the worst should happen.

Why do you need to know?

In 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation could see your business fined 4% of your annual turnover if you haven’t taken the appropriate action!

It’s happening near you!

In 2015/16, UK businesses reported a 22 per cent increase in cybercrime, resulting in more than £1bn in losses, according to figures from Get Safe Online and the UK’s national fraud and cybercrime reporting centre Action Fraud.

In the West Midlands, there were 1,158 reported cases of cybercrime. London Metropolitan and Essex police forces received the highest volume of reports, with 5,742 and 2,505 respectively.

Still think you’re safe? Pop along to our seminar and find out how you can be sure….

Here at PKF Cooper, brand is something hugely important to us. It’s a way of communicating our values and the way we are, all without the use of words. It creates an opportunity to show differences and create choices.

Not-for-profit brand loyalty depends upon connecting with audiences on an emotional level – and those deep connections can best be achieved through an authentic brand that communicates the unique, distinctive essence and purpose of the organisation.

We have invited a leading expert in brand strategy – Ollie Leggett, MD and Brand Consultant at IE – to talk about the importance of brand. He’ll describe how brands develop, how they reflect the organisations they represent – and the perils of straying from your core DNA.

It’s never just about a logo. It’s about finding your voice, defining your identity and enriching the conversation you’re having with your audiences – always ensuring your organisation’s core values are at the heart of everything you do.

About Ollie Leggett

A former teacher and charity trustee, Ollie has over two decades of not-for-profit brand experience, working with clients including Cranfield University, The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham, TeachFirst, the University of Birmingham, CLIC Sargent, pfeg and Career Ready.
