Whohoo! I will be flying to NYC next week to join the other judges for The Drum’s first ever US Search Awards USA. After having the awards in the UK for many years, they are bringing it to NYC for the first time ever. As a three-time judge for the US Search Awards (held in conjunction with Pubcon every year), I am excited to get to review more outstanding work, this time in person, with a panel of judges.
