With the categories I’ve been given, I’m particularly interested to see how brands have integrated social media and influencers to create a successful PR campaigns.
When I started my career, The Drum was always such a fantastic resource for my learning and development and then in 2017, I was lucky enough to be shortlisted for their Rising Star of the Year award. So, to now sit on the other side of the table as a judge, it means a lot to me personally and
it’s an amazing feeling to be able to contribute to all the joy, excitement and anticipation that’ll fill the room in November.”
