The award recognizes our success in undertaking commissions for digital footprint and social media training and expertise for a diverse range of organisations. Our consultancy and training work, led by Nicola Osborne, is tailored to organisations own contexts and needs and is informed by research undertaken as part of the Managing Your Digital Footprints initiative with University of Edinburgh colleagues (PI: Louise Connelly).
