As event producers we have the privilege of creating, producing and in some way, becoming part of, a memory for someone. This responsibility can be weighty and it is important to say thank you to our event heroes. The Drum Awards are transparent, open to all and I adore the fact you can nominate yourself! We all need to be a little more proud of our professional achievements.
