Campaign sits firmly at the centre of our industry, so it follows that the BIG awards do just that too. It always feels like it engenders a bit of proper competition, big names and sharp tongues across a fresh batch of top tier UK advertising at the start of a new awards season – a benchmark to be set and celebrated. I am delighted to be asked to chair this year and even more so to do it alongside Alex who I like very much.
