Why I am judging the awards... "Agencies had been under immense pressure to rethink and reinvent the way they were working even before the pandemic made things even more complicated.  I’m looking forward to understanding how the best agencies are adapting their business models whilst keeping staff motivated and producing high quality, impactful work. I’m also excited to uncover the gems who are not normally in the limelight but deserve recognition for creating great places to work and being great partners for their clients."
