The Huffington Post recently dubbed him “Inspirational Leader”. Thomas has also been invited to judge several international communication award shows such as the D&AD, Creative Circle Award, Creative Conscious Award, The Big Transition and EthicMark Award. Furthermore, he’s a regular contributor to The Guardian and several other business and advertising publications.
