Your message is only as good as its ability to reach people. Over the last year as the content we consume and where we consume it has become increasingly visual, the most effective way to reach people online is through images. People are spending more time on Pinterest than Facebook. And Facebook acquired Instagram for $1 billion. In this engaging presentation, Leigh will explore the rise of the Visual Web and how you can leverage it to shape the knowledge used to make business decisions.
