BookMachine Briefing with Lumina Datamatics and Cambridge University Press & Assessment

13 April, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm BST

Lumina Datamatics 1

Join us on Thursday 13th April, from 13:00 to 13:30 BST, for a brief, illuminating and publishing-specific conversation with Deborah Harman (Lumina Datamatics), Jessica Stock (recently acquired by Lumina Datamatics, Sunrise Setting) and Katy McIntosh (Cambridge University Press & Assessment).


During this discussion, we’ll be diving into the question of onshore vs offshore models, and exploring the opportunities and benefits for publishers. We’ll cover a bit of background into the approaches you could consider when working with on- and off-shore teams, the benefits you could be missing out on, and how the CUP teams currently work to make the most of these models, and find success.


By tuning in live, you can be a part of the discussion – contributing your own thoughts and questions in the chat box. We very much hope to see you there!


Registration is required, so please sign up above to receive the Zoom link to tune in live.
