  2. Optimising their global marketing organisation, including working more effectively with partners;
  3. Delivering stand-out innovation and creative effectiveness.
  4. Playing an industry leadership role, for example around furthering the Diversity & Inclusion agenda.

All nominations should demonstrate outstanding leadership in two or more of these areas, with particular reference to their activities in the last 12 months.
