"I’m looking forward to participating in this years Drum marketing awards as it’s not enough being in the marketing community and creating great work – the marketing community isn’t just about creation, it’s about giving feedback and recognition to elevate your peers, those that seek to learn, and the newcomers that deserve a shot. I hope to see thought provoking work, and work that progresses the cultural zeitgeist."
