11.00 The NEW trend in Visual Communications: the Democratisation of Content Creation | Bob Michelson | CEO | RMG Networks

The world is changing.  Many companies world-wide have determined that being limited to a small number of producers and curators of content is too restrictive and results in missing significantly compelling content.  As a result, leading companies have opened up the source pool of content to produce richer, more timely and compelling content….without dramatic cost increases and while maintaining reasonable editorial control.  We will discuss the new world of sourcing, filtering and governance to enable companies to take advantage of this exciting new trend.
