ʺI’m extremely humbled, proud and happy for the induction in the Hall of Fame of the Golden Drum festival, the most recognized and important creative and advertising festival in the greater CEE region. I have many, many people to thank for this - all those who believed in me at the beginning and along the way, and all the amazing Publicis Groupe talent who contributed to do what we did, together.
If someone would have told me this when I first arrived in Romania 15 years ago as a young copywriter, I would never have believed them. For me, to join such an esteemed line-up of fellow ‘hallers’ is a true honour. It is also a great confirmation that in your work, as in life, it’s always crucial not to listen to the average, but rather to do your thing with passion, take risks and put yourself on the edge. Because it’s there, where magic happens.” – Jorg Riommi, Publicis Groupe
