Tutssel comments on the APAC Tambuli Awards and says, “this award shines a light on creativity as a force for good in the world. It galvanizes the broader industry to take action. Highlighting work that can make a better tomorrow. Gen Z are the most socially conscious generation we’ve seen. They demand transparency from brands and actively seek out those who share their values and positively contribute to a better world. Purpose can align seamlessly with current trends – both in the world of advertising and human behaviour – giving them strength and momentum. When used effectively, purpose leads to dynamic business change.”
