We’ve made quite a few changes to the newsletter this December, ready to bring in the new year.  We hope you like it!

As well as a new approach, focusing on different areas of digital skills (this issue spotlights digital ‘communications’), we’re launching what we believe is the world’s first corporate newsletter problem page!  FutureDotNow’s own digital agony dames, Liz and Holly are here to help you through your digital dilemmas… We’re also revealing your Dirty Digital Secrets!  And we have a fun survey, with a serious side too, so don’t hesitate to get involved in that too!
