Why am I judging these awards
Having set up a business when the first iPhone was launched and just before the 2008 recession hit and managed growth through challenging times until the sale of the company to Vivaldi Group in November 2018 I have experienced not only the vagaries of the economy but also the huge evolution of the marketing industry. I know how tough it can be to stay relevant and focus on what matters and can’t wait to judge the success stories of my peers.
