GDPR Guidance – About me and what I do
I offer GDPR guidance to small online UK business owners that enables you to understand what you can do to make your business compliant and when it is, on an easy basis, keep it that way. At the moment, the UK GDPR aligns with the EU GDPR but this may change over time. We concentrate on the UK GDPR requirements, which apply to UK businesses whose customers and clients are mainly UK-based.
My approach is from the viewpoint of coaches, consultants and trainers with small online businesses. My service style has been built from the ground up with the people I work with always front and centre. I understand the time and cost constraints you have (because I have them too) but more than that, I understand the anxiety of being unsure of what you have to do, where to start and what things should look like when you do. Simply put, you don’t know what you don’t know!
I can help you by giving you the choice as to which of my solutions suits you and your business the best:
- It’s important that you feel comfortable and confident when you work with me. That’s why I suggest you start off with my Facebook Group. This is where you and other online coaches, trainers and consultants can ask questions and share ideas on solving problems in the easiest and most practical way. I’m around with guidance on the latest on legislation and official instructions. You can join my online workshop at 11.00 am on the first Wednesday of every month, where we’ll look at a key GDPR subject that affects your business. The easiest way to find out which subject is coming up is (unsurprisingly!) by joining my Jargon-free GDPR Facebook group for small online UK business owners.
- I write email Small Business Updates with useful information on the latest changes.
- I also have online resources in the form of quizzes, courses and video micro training, both free and paid.
- I run my Step By Step GDPR programme on a regular basis. It is designed for coaches, trainers and consultants and helps you to identify your business’s GDPR-related essentials, implement what you need in the way that fits you and then keep everything up to date without stress!
We can also provide 1-2-1 services, where more roll-up your sleeves hands-on help is needed.
About me: Kate Baker
There seems to be a lack of specific GDPR-related practical help designed for UK business owners who run their business on their own and are responsible for handling pretty much everything. Some use the term solopreneurs but, regardless of what label you want to apply, the struggles remain the same. Understanding how the requirements of the Regulations and other related legislation apply to a business can become overwhelming and a simplification and clarification of how they relate to the day to day running of a business becomes essential.
That is my mission – I want to clear up misunderstandings and sweep away the jargon and fear of the unknown whilst avoiding adding to your workload and costs. I know your business means a lot to you, as does mine. Getting things right is part of the sense of achievement you have and allows you to have peace of mind. That’s where I fit in – your peace of mind is my sense of achievement because I’ve been where you are!

My commitment to privacy and security:
When it comes to keeping the data I process safe and secure involves a mixture of policies, technical and security measures (as required in the GDPR) but having a love of “shiny” also means being nosy about improvements in how I can achieve the best results I can in relation to the status as an owner-run business (like yours).
As you can imagine, I take data protection very seriously. You can be confident that I will be very careful with regard to your privacy and the security of any information shared with me, either verbally or in writing.
