Why I am judging the awards....

“Judging these awards is not only about the critique and celebration of innovative and impactful thinking, but also having the opportunity to learn from some of the best minds in our industry. 
Great B2B campaigns that move the commercial needle must have simple, yet powerful, messaging and creativity at their heart as much as any other. I’m looking forward to seeing the strategy behind how the entrants communicated their purpose to their audience, how they have leveraged the wider ecosystems at their disposal, and how robustly they measured meeting their original ambitions.”
