To ensure that submissions to the SABRE Awards are peer reviewed by senior professionals with a strong understanding of what goes to make a winning PR programme, we have assembled a jury of industry leaders from throughout the region. From major global agencies, our judges include Christina Cheang, regional managing director for South East Asia at GolinHarris; Mark Hass, chief executive of Edelman China; David Ko, chief executive of Waggener Edstrom Asia-Pacific; Vivian Lines, chief executive of Hill & Knowlton, Asia-Pacific; John Studdert, executive chairman of Ogilvy Public Relations Australia; and Garry Walsh, who heads APCO Worldwide operations in South East Asia. From leading local firms, we have Neil Green, CEO of SenateSJH Communications in New Zealand and N Chandramouli, CEO of Blue Lotus Communications in India. And from the client side of the business, we have influential figures such as Carson Dalton of BT; Whitney Foard Small of Ford Motor Co.; Anna Shipley of Nokia; Shivanth Thukral of Essar Group in India; and Velvet Yoshinami of Danone in Japan. Paul Holmes, editor and CEO of The Holmes Report, will chair the judging panel, and more names will be added over the next few weeks.
