Why I am judging these awards
Marketing and communications agencies have an increasingly important role to play in business and in society. It is important that they are ethical, have purpose and are efficient and well-run so that the sector can continue to grow and prosper. These awards will highlight best practice and I am delighted to be part of the judging panel.
