Chair of the judges
Digitas UK

Emma has been an advertising creative for nearly 20 years. First as a junior copywriter at a tiny start up agency above a curry house and most recently as the UK Chief Creative Officer at Digitas, responsible for the agency’s overall creative output and point of view on the world.

In between the two, she’s been ECD on famous brands such as British Airways, IBM and Kimberley Clark. Along the way, she’s won Golds and Grand Prix at every major creative award show including Best in Show for Mobile at One Show, Grand Prix at Cannes for Direct and D&AD Yellow Pencils for Integrated campaigns.

Emma’s experience spans direct marketing, brand advertising, digital communications and technology – a rare mix of skills. She’s passionate about innovation, behavioural science, strategic planning and the power of the team.

Named The Drum’s first ever Creative Women of the year in 2016, celebrating the industry’s leading female creative talent, Emma is a world-class creative force.
