Why i am judging the awards....“I am excited to be joining The Drum Awards judging panel for the third consecutive year. It is always great to see the stand out work and thinking from agencies, brands and tech vendors across the region. This year I am looking forward to seeing how through the application of technology, data and marketing, companies are building solutions that drive real business change, going past vanity metrics that do not affect a business’s bottom line. Each year we see great examples of how companies are thinking creatively and utilising technology and data to solve business challenges and I have no doubt this year will be no different.”
