Why I am judging the awards this year... “This year, it will be interesting to see how brands are using creativity and diversity to tackle the business challenges that we are facing. On top of that, we’re also seeing that technology is only as useful as it is adaptable to our consumers and clients. I am looking forward to approaches that are truly proactive in this space because leaning on previous “learnings” is a rear view mirror mentality which alone does not provide us with any insights, anymore.”
