A note from our 2022 Chair of Judges

As President of The Marketing Society I am proud to invite you to enter The Marketing Society Awards. Marketing is an ever-evolving industry and we must adapt and develop to keep ahead - How brave do we need to be to guide our teams and business into the future? Our world is constantly changing and we must find new solutions to the global challenges that all our organisations face.

Our Awards will recognise those that are leading the way in this new marketing world either as individuals, through the campaigns they produce or the new and creative solutions they put in place to achieve results. We are still looking for effectiveness and marketing excellence; all marketing activity should be effective - that is our day job - but what we really want to see are your exceptional marketing stories that truly demonstrate brave leadership in action.

The judges will be a highly experienced group of marketing practitioners and I am honoured to be leading the panel through the process for the third year in a row.
