Digital started in our industry decades ago delivering journal articles electronically before becoming embraced by the trade and education sectors. The internet has transformed the way we do business, consumer demand and taste and the way content is delivered. Digital skills are now needed in every aspect of the publishing process. Exploring this topic, a panel of publishers, chaired by Emma House and featuring Suzanne Kavanagh, Director of Marketing and Membership Services at ALPSP and Eela Devani, Digital Development Director at Bloomsbury Publishing, with others still to be announced.

Whether you are new to publishing, looking to upskill or looking to understand how your skills can be better applied across the broad base of the publishing industry, this seminar will help clarify the opportunities and needs of employers.
