Verica Djurdjevic, CEO at PHD UK, Pippa Glucklich, former CEO of Starcom UK and Lisa Brankin, Marketing Director at Ford, were all celebrated by Cosmopolitan – the UK’s biggest media brand for young women – during an exclusive ceremony at the Hotel Café Royal, London.

The three trailblazing women were selected from both agencies and brands for embodying the Cosmopolitan value of empowerment in action – demonstrating innovation, bravery and a commitment to championing young talent within the industry.

The event was hosted by Jacqui Cave, MD of Cosmopolitan, Jane Wolfson, Chief Agency Officer at Hearst and Farrah Storr, Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan.
