Now in their fifth year, our awards recognise energy, innovation and sharp thinking agencies and clients commit to marketing and their partnerships.
Amidst this highly interactive evening, five clear themes emerged from on-stage discussion with our jurors:
Every industry, every category, every brand is changing. Everyone is on an exciting transformation journey to the future.
Confidence is the golden ticket to successful agency and client relationships: “I’m buying the confidence this team brings in helping me to solve my marketing problems” a sentiment shared by many marketers.
Successful creativity is anchored in human relevance: “We’re people not algorithms”
We all need to have one foot in tomorrow and navigate the future together
Above all – that old adage remains true: the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, and collaboration will conversion in this ever-changing world
