Greig Dowling - DBS

What's The Challenge?

The commercial publishing landscape is fractured and fraught with challenges; whether its managing user data following the fallout of GDPR or dealing with 3rd party tech partners, multimedia storytelling, building an effective cross platform revenue strategy or how about growing and maintaining an engaged audience across an ever increasing list of distribution platforms and channels - publishers have their work cut out for them...

The need for publishers to innovate is very real but the rate of change in technology and consumer habits make devising the best strategy for both audiences and bottom line the real challenge.

DBS works with the publishing eco-system
