Why I am judging the awards... “I am so excited to be judging this year's Drum Awards for Social Media. Given the challenges we have all faced this year - as a global population and as individuals - it feels more important than ever to step back and recognize the great work that our industry continues to execute to help brands, partners and causes thrive in difficult times. I’ll be looking out for innovation and creativity as always, but for those wanting that extra edge, I’ll be looking for strategy informed by data and insights, and an understanding of how the activity drove real business value."
