Della will bring so much to the judging room as she and her jury will set the bar so that others in the years to come can keep building on it.

“I’m thrilled and honored to be selected as president of the inaugural Creativity in PR Jury for the LIA 2022 awards,” said Della. “LIA’s addition of the category is very timely. We’ve seen the elevation of PR such that earned-led creative is central to delivering powerful ideas that are shaping perceptions, reputations, feelings, cultures, behaviors, and actions like never before.
