Welcome back to The Digital Snapshot, a fortnightly round-up of all the news, innovation and new ideas in the world of digital, as relevant to the arts, culture, museums and heritage sectors. Happy New Year folks! Isn't 2020 already turning out to be a rollercoaster ride...

But anyway, onwards! If you need help in any area of digital this year - whether strategy, tactical, or research - please do get in touch.

Firstly, allow me to kick off the year with a pointer to some forthcoming workshops being run by The Audience Agency. Our Data For... workshop series will help you get the most out of your data. I'm doing one on Data For...Digital Marketing.
