Today, we are faced with unprecedented challenges, as an industry as well as a society. I’m excited to see Steve implement his programme over the next year to be more inclusive. Cross-disciplinary partnerships broaden horizons and breed innovation and creativity. It’s sure to be an exciting year ahead for D&AD… I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank outgoing President Bruce Duckworth for his unerring support and the leadership he has provided over the last twelve months.”
