Sad all the coverage from B&T Women in Media Awards is done and dusted? Ha! Gotcha. Think again – we’re not nearly done celebrating all the incredible women across the media industry – especially our winners.
We decided to play a quick game of ’20 Questions With’ each of our award recipients. Today we asked Carat’s head of strategy Danni Wright the hard questions, like whether she replaces the office milk and her go-to karaoke song. Danni was awarded this year’s strategy award.
