"The Drum Content Awards play an essential role in helping drive us forward. We should always take the time to share and recognise excellent work. It keeps us curious and creative and encourages greater collaboration. Good storytelling is in our DNA. Good story telling that leads to real action is what I think we are all keen to see.
