Each year, Campaign Magazine invites agencies and clients to nominate those within their organisations paving the way to become the industry’s next generation of leaders. 

There was one very obvious choice for Carat UK this year, strategy partner, Venya Wijegoonewardene and we are delighted to announce that she has been selected in Campaign’s 2019 Faces to Watch list. 

“As a proud Sri Lankan, diversity and inclusion is a foundation of Venya’s work. She firmly believes that more diverse voices are the key to better creative thinking and collaboration, which, ultimately, leads to stronger work. Venya is currently forming a BAME employee network for Carat and the wider Dentsu Aegis Network that will potentially unlock greater opportunities for hundreds of talented people. Venya wants to be the change that she wants to see in this industry and is prepared to do everything she can to help others do the same. It’s the passion and enthusiasm that she brings to this and her work that make all those that she works with love her. From creating award-winning work for Diageo on Baileys and Gordon’s to pitching new business and building our creative culture at Carat UK, Venya is a real force for good.”
