Creative Director
FCB Inferno / Creative Equals

"Bringing forth the best ideas for clients irrespective of media or channel is something I have continued to do throughout my career – to offer truly media-neutral thinking that really makes a difference. I’m delighted to see The Drum Dream Awards championing this on a global scale. To be a judge is such a great opportunity to see the calibre of thinking from around the world – and pass on that energy and insights to my own team!"

Becky is an accomplished Creative Director with FCB Inferno, she is a passionate voice highlighting the need for more women at all levels within advertising creative departments. Her mantelpiece is stacked with awards from across Europe reflecting the cross-discipline thinking she has become known for. Her many years of experience, for clients at home and around the globe means she keeps a cool head and a tenacious attitude in pursuing the best creative possible.
Having had an active role with SheSays & Who’s Your Momma both in the UK and Australia, Becky took the next step in 2014 to partner Ali Hanan and launch Creative Equals – a gender diversity initiative specifically targeting London creative agencies.
She is a key proponent for change, citing “It’s time to stop talking and start doing when it comes to changing the gender imbalance in AdLand.”
