Welcome back! And welcome to 2012! Here’s hoping that you have indulged and celebrated and enjoyed every moment of the festive break. January presents a great chance to both reflect on the last twelve months and also plan new beginnings and fresh starts for the months come. There have been excellent articles compiled charting industry ups and down over the course of 2011. If you’re after some top coffee break reads, take a gander at Helen Southgate’s review of her year as AMC chair, or Matthew Wood’s detailed recap of the important performance marketing developments from January to December. Our own Strategy Director Kevin Edwards has also complied his thoughts on a year that could stand as an important transition in many areas of the industry. Finally, if you want to catch up on the action-packed year that we’ve had at Affiliate Window and buy.at, take a look at our own round-up of key events from 2011.
