Digital Breakfast - Video Content Strategy - Weds 03 July - last chance to book!

Video content is big and getting bigger. By 2016 it's anticipated that 86% of consumer web traffic will be video, and 60% of UK companies plan to increase their video budgets in 2013.

With audiences increasingly less likely to watch video advertising online, it's powerful branded content that gets the most attention, awareness and action. Brands that get it right will plan for and incorporate online video into their marketing mix, and optimize video media for search, social and mobile.

In this session we'll look at what cutting edge digital video producers are doing and showcase best practice across the digital video industry.

Speakers and panellists

Johnny Webb, Managing Director, Sundog Pictures (former MD of Virgin Media TV and Living TV Group)
Johnny will be talking about Sundog Picture's recent YouTube launch of a documentary on the failed war on drugs, and the social strategy and production model behind it. He will be demonstrating the power of starting conversations and communities around video, and discussing how they're taking a similar approach out to the work they're doing with brands.

Johnny has 16 years of experience in broadcast, from programme and digital commissioning to full on executive management and everything in between, having run Virgin Media TV (latterly known as Living TV Group) and the converged sales house IDS. He is passionate about two-screen story telling to add texture and depth to a narrative, whether that's a tweet or a phone application.
