“I will drive Ogilvy UK into a new chapter of growth and show how boundless creativity can impact the business to continue to build on their fantastic customer list. I can not wait to bring my passion for pitching to the table.”

Liz Wilson, CEO of Accenture Song, said: “Laura is the perfect new business professional; she’s had an epic nine years here at Karmarama, and now Accenture Song, and we’re so proud of what she’s accomplished, but this is just it. the kind of meaty new opportunity she will invest in, and we wish her all the best. ”

“Her passion for helping clients find the right partner, show impact and build winning teams is just the skills we need.”
