Welcome to The Kingpin Weekly Digest #16.

The last Christmas cards are being sent, goodbyes being said and soon Chris Rea will begin his annual drive home for Christmas.

As a parting gift this week on the Digest, a Red Cockerpoo provides Kingpin Co-Founder James Foulkes with an epiphany, we provide a cheat sheet to measuring brand awareness campaigns and we look at what we can expect to shape B2B's use of social media in 2019.
