What is the 30-minute initial consultation?
As a data protection consultancy, IGS offer a wide range of services to our clients and to potential clients. We recognise the importance of good business relationships and being able to work with people you can trust, that’s why IGS offer all prospective clients a free 30-minute initial consultation meeting with one of our consultants so that you we can collaboratively discuss your query, project or support you need our assistance with. This meeting will be a chance to establish whether our organisations are a good fit for each other, whether we can support you, and to ask any questions before officially engaging us as a service provider.
The meeting will be held virtually on Microsoft Teams, and we utilise Microsoft’s Booking platform to facilitate the calendar arrangement as well as capturing the essential information we require to undertake the consultation meeting.
