Why I am judging the awards... "2020 has stress-tested the qualities and metrics that define all great agency businesses: from leadership in adversity to the power of work cultures to motivate teams to excel during challenging times. All agencies regardless of their size have had to navigate their businesses through uncharted waters in order to succeed. I am honoured to be a judge this year and I will be looking for inspirational stories that can be shared, insights and actions that we can all learn from."
