"I am delighted to be a judge for an awards that rewards and recognises the very best and cutting edge of marketing thinking, execution and talent across a broad range of sectors – whether from global giants or small local operators. This is inspiring, helps stimulate better ideas and drives the industry towards better standards. In a world in which marketing investments are increasingly being scrutinised, the entries need to demonstrate flair, brand impact and critically, the commercial success delivered."
