If you have bought or have adopted Dave’s books for your courses and lecturing – thank you, I hope you’ve found them helpful and inspiring!
My recommendations for lecturers and students on this page link to lecturers’ resources such as slides and link to recommended videos and statistics to support teaching and learning.
Some of these articles are from the Smart Insights blog which gives more detail on the latest developments in digital marketing, digital business and e-commerce that may not yet be available in the books. The updates then feed into future editions of the books.
