"I'm honored to join The Drum PR Awards as a judge. After two decades working in communications for technology companies like Oracle and GoDaddy, I've seen our industry change and evolve, and am looking forward to celebrating not only the best work in our field, but our fellow communications professionals. I'm most interested in seeing entries that accomplish something big with a small set of resources."
