LIA announces Suzanne Powers, founder of Powers Creativity as jury president for Creative Strategy and Transformative Business Impact

London International Awards (LIA) has announced Suzanne Powers, founder of Powers Creativity as the 2024 jury president for the LIA Creative Strategy and Transformative Business Impact jury.


Ten industry luminaries from around the globe will be joining Powers onsite in Las Vegas for LIA judging.

This is the inaugural year for the Creative Strategy competition. A creative strategy is crucial to the success of any campaign. It acts as the blueprint for the brand. It needs to have vision and it needs to be creative to deliver a message that resonates with consumers.

Powers Creativity is a company dedicated to helping people and organizations unleash creativity to drive business impact. This company is founded on the belief that creativity is not a happy accident, but rather requires intentional design to craft and calibrate the conditions for creativity to thrive. Planning for creativity is not only Power’s passion; it channels her extensive global experience of partnering with many of the world’s most famous companies and brands including Apple, Coca Cola, Mastercard, Mars, Nespresso, Microsoft, Nivea, GM, Cigna, Mondolez, L’Oreal, Visa, State Street and beyond.

Says Powers: “I’m looking so forward to working with this amazing jury to dig into and celebrate the work that beautifully fuses strategic and creative excellence for real-world impact.”
