IPA just announced the ten winners of the Women of Tomorrow 2014 competition. We are immensely proud to announce that two TIE Alumni, Alice Hooper and Nazia Du Bois, are amongst them. “These Women of Tomorrow are clearly women who are excelling at their careers, but what sets them apart and makes them our future leaders is their ability to use their energy and passions to make a difference, pioneer and break new grounds. Confident, smart, innovative and crucially likeable women who are fabulous ambassadors for our industry. Our future is bright!”, says Karen Blackett, CEO at Mediacom and Co-Chairwoman of Judges.
Both Alice and Nazia have extraordinary careers paths, always striving for excellence, but also leaving their mark at each step. Both were considered truly inspirational by the judges panel because of their remarkable work. Nazia was praised for her effort of giving brands a global voice, that truly respects and understands cultural diversity, and the importance of long term sustainable values. Alice thrilled the judges with her work at Leo Burnett Change, a business division of the Leo Burnett Group for non- for profit communications, which she co-founded on the back of her TIE experience in 2011.
“They have the drive, ambition and confidence to not only become one of the next generation of leaders but also to determine the shape of the industry in the future.”, says Maisie McCabe, News Editor at Campaign and Co-Chairwoman of Judges. Shaping the future of the industry – this is what TIE is all about. Alice and Nazia are the perfect example that it is possible. And what we are doing is working.
