Chairs of Judging


Natalie Bell, chief executive of Manning Gottlieb OMD


“What an absolute honour to be co-chairing this year’s Media Week Awards. Against the backdrop of challenges from the pandemic we’ve still seen so much positive change and innovation in our industry over the past year – in people, product and partnerships – and we’re coming out of this period with such brilliant opportunities ahead of us. I’m excited to see the best of that celebrated at these awards" 

Dara Nasr, managing director at Twitter UK


"It is a total honour to be asked to judge to Media Week Awards let alone co-chair them. I can’t wait to work alongside the amazing Natalie, to have the privilege of witnessing the best work and teams in this business."
