"It’s an honour to be invited to judge the DADI awards. Our industry moves at such a pace that we don’t often get the chance to step back and take stock of all the achievements. Prestigious awards like the DADIs gives us all the opportunity to do that. I’ll expect the winning entries to demonstrate innovative thinking and prove true business value for brands."
