Creative Media Excellence Drum Jury ​President's message

“As an industry we’ve never had a greater playground for creativity and opportunity for original thinking. Richer data sets and insights are at our fingertips, allowing us to keep pace with culture and consumer behavior. The proliferation of technology and AI are unleashing new possibilities. And the world has become the greatest canvas filled with Digital and Physical experiences to drive greater connection.

The power of creativity is that it pushes beyond provocative to become a true outcome-driver, impacting both society and business for good. I could not be more honored to lead the Creative Media Excellence jury at the Golden Drum and excited to see best-in-class creative bravery from around the world.”
