So in our continuous quest to support our fellow marketers, Perkuto’s content team has scoured Twitter to find creative GDPR posts that your colleagues around the world have tweeted.

GDPR: Serious Business for Marketers
All kidding aside, we know GDPR is no laughing matter and should be taken seriously, especially now that we’re in the final stretch with the compliance deadline looming ahead. “Are you Ready for GDPR?” is still the question of the day, and the topic of an upcoming webinar that we’ll be presenting in partnership with Marketo and Uberflip. I’ll be teaming up with Marketo’s Sr. Director of EMEA Marketing Peter Bell and Uberflip’s Director of Revenue Marketing Tara Robertson to help marketers understand what’s required for compliance, discuss the topic of “consent” and explore the implications of GDPR on your operations and the systems you use every day. This free presentation runs live on April 4 at 11:00 am EDT and we’d love for you to join us. Additionally, get a sneak preview of what we’ll be covering on Uberflip’s blog where Tara and I have a conversation about consent, data collection and the always popular question: is there any workaround to GDPR? Check it out, and, don’t forget to sign up for the webinar! Until then, keep your head high and don’t stop laughing…it’s good medicine for curing the GDPR blues and soothing your GDPR soul.
