LONDON, Dec 13, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - Leading industry professionals from a wide range of businesses, sectors and countries make up the Effective Content Strategy jury of the WARC Awards 2018 - a global search for next-generation marketing effectiveness.

I look forward to helping to identify the next generation of effective advertisers who use innovative content to establish, promote and extend their brand."
