Why did you sign up to be a judge for The Pros Awards 2024?
A second year of celebrating diverse comms talent? What a privilege! Last year showcased just how much variety, diversity and wow-factor there is in our industry and I’m excited to see what this year has in store. I’m also always for platforming those who don’t get the recognition they deserve, the Pros does just that and I’m honoured to be a part of a bigger change in the comms industry.
What Insta/Twitter(X)/Tik Tok account should every comms pro follow and why?

Munya Chawawa on TikTok because…

What was your favourite PR/comms story from 2023 and why?
This isn’t a campaign per se, but pretty much every Munya skit has been it for me. He just nails it on the head each time. He manages to combine political commentary, with satire, wit, and comedy every time. He never misses. And he’s able to teach and educate with his content too.

As before we’ve got a great DJ booked for The Pros Awards awards ceremony in July – what’s your dancefloor-filler request?
