Chair of the judges
M&C Saatchi

Ben began his copywriting career in Australia at Publicis Dialog and George Patterson Bates before joining Harrison Troughton Wunderman in 2004. An eleven-year stint at Kitcatt Nohr (subsequently Digitas) saw him rise through the ranks to Executive Creative Director, leading the agency to creative success on Waitrose, John Lewis, Starbucks and Nando’s, as well as smoking cessation campaigns for the Department of Health. In 2016, Golik joined RAPP, creating widely awarded work for PayPal and luxury start-up Heist.

He joined the M&C Saatchi Group as Chief Creative Officer of LIDA in May 2018, snaring the Experian account shortly after. At LIDA he drove award-winning work for Invesco, and world-record breaking work for the sale of a Jeff Koons artwork for Christie’s.

He became Chief Creative Officer of M&C Saatchi following the agency’s merger with LIDA in January 2020.
