Summary of work

Winner: Emily Brooks

Emily has always wanted to do things differently and her multi-dimensional ability adds genuine value to her clients and company. Her thirst for the anti-traditional delivers ‘great strategy and brilliant creativity’ for clients and countless new company initiatives.

In 2011, she delivered nearly £1m fee income and was instrumental in 14 pitch wins. She transforms proposals and presentations, set up the Virgo iZiNE and is digital lead for the 60-strong agency. In recognition of her outstanding contribution she has been appointed Head of Digital Client Services. The team and clients say she is ‘effervescent’, ‘stand-out’ and ‘an exception to the rule’.

Judges comments

With Emily, the day job is doing everything brilliantly for her clients, but it is what she does over and above this that sets her apart.
