Buying things is pleasurable. Unless it’s for work. Hoarding receipts for coffee and lunch; the finance team picking their way through them and making sure everything squares up at the end of the month: There are no winners when it comes to filing expense reports.

​Rules and rewards: Is there a business opportunity in GDPR?

Blog posts   •   Feb 18, 2020 07:05 GMT

GDPR (the European General Data Protection Regulation) has given rise to a transformational shift in the way companies deal with online privacy, but to some, it is still seen as a regulatory burden.

Technology is changing our life - from how we work to how we shop. It is even defining the way we interact with each other and build our personal relationships. Take Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez as an example. It seems they don’t talk anymore, like they used to do. Is it maybe because now they message each other?
