"I’m really excited to see how far the needle has moved in a world which moves at such a lightening pace it’s hard to keep up, let alone lead. I’ll particularly be looking out for how innovative thinking and sharp execution have weaponised platforms in new ways or to achieve remarkable results. These awards are crucial not only to reward and reflect on the hard work of so many people, brands and agencies; perhaps most importantly they allow us to asses who they represent and what those ambitions were, as the industry encompasses such a broad church, from bricks and mortar retailers to esports organisations."
