Andrew DelaneyUS-based content expert Andrew Delaney is to share the results of  global research into what makes visual content compelling and how brands can create content that resonates with consumers in a session at next week;s festival of Branded Content & Entertainment.

The session will explore the impact of improvements in digital technology, particularly smartphones and social media which have allowed consumers to become prolific content makers.
