The Holmes Report has named Weber Shandwick’s James Nester as one of the 25 most innovative people in PR across the EMEA region.
The list draws on individuals from various backgrounds, from creative strategy and digital execution, to influencer mapping and media storytelling. It represents a compelling picture of what marketing and communications looks like today, and will look like in future.
The Holmes Report said of James: “Hailing from an award-winning digital and creative background (which includes the iconic Gnome Experiment campaign) James joined Weber Shandwick in summer 2015 with a brief to raise creativity throughout the agency, while further bolstering its digital and social credentials.
“Since then he transformed Weber’s creative output across the UK and EMEA, helping it win EMEA Digital Consultancy of the Year honours earlier this year, thanks to innovative work for the likes of ActionAid, Vauxhall and UNICEF. Nester’s range of cross-disciplinary experience – including social media, publishing, direct marketing, TV advertising and film-making – mark him out as a unique industry presence, particularly when you factor in his views that public relations is perfectly positioned to be the most creative and innovative of all the communications disciplines.”
