Jury President
Tangrams is a great competition and I am thrilled to be on the team looking at this year’s Effectiveness entries. As a marketer with media planning roots, I see effectiveness as the ultimate goal of all our work. I’ll be looking out for entries that make me jealous, that make me and other jurors wish that we had thought of it first. I’m expecting us to see work of the very highest quality as APAC is proving itself more than capable of world-class standards in this area
