Welcome to the very first Digital People Change newsletter, I'm so pleased to be talking to you as someone who is also interested in people change. I plan to publish monthly, on the last Tuesday of each month, and will include any new blog posts and some interesting reading on our shared topic. I hope you like the posts and if you have anything you think might be of interest then do let me know. And of course, if you know others working in the area please do share this with them as we'd love to connect.
