Pure Executive brings region’s Finance Directors together to discuss gender pay reporting and GDPR

Senior finance professionals from across the East of England have come together to discuss topical regulation updates including gender pay reporting and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) at the Autumn series of Finance Director (FD) Breakfast Clubs.

The quarterly FD Breakfast Clubs are organised by accountancy firm Grant Thornton in association with executive recruitment consultants Pure Executive to provide forums for the region’s finance leaders to come together and discuss topical issues likely to impact on businesses and the local economy.

Five Autumn breakfast sessions were held in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Peterborough, Ipswich and Norwich between 16 October and 2 November and were attended by over 130 finance professionals. The interactive sessions provided a combination of technical updates and strategic thinking around gender pay gap reporting, changes to GDPR regulations and best practice on tax governance. 

Tom Earl, Director at Pure Executive, said: “The continued introduction of new reporting requirements such as gender pay and GDPR brings an element of both internal and external financial and reputational risk to all organisations. Our latest FD breakfast clubs focussed on managing this risk by providing practical support and information to help ensure organisations are compliant and that they understand how some of these requirements will impact businesses on a practical level.”

The FD Breakfast Clubs were first launched in 2014 by Pure Executive and Grant Thornton to help support the local business community and to grow the regional economy. Subjects covered at previous sessions have included Corporate Governance, Apprenticeship Levy, Cyber Security and Data Protection and the impact of Brexit.

The FD Breakfast Clubs are open to all senior finance professionals. For more information about future events email Lucy Plumb: lucy.plumb@pureexecutive.com
