I am proud to work with such talented people and to be able to create award-winning work for our clients who trust us enough to do so. Each award takes us one step forward on our journey towards transformation and continued growth – for our people, our clients and our country,” says Xolisa Dyeshana, integrated chief creative officer at Joe Public United.
