Leading a team of 50 people and reporting to Lamy Zhang, Managing Director of DigitasLBi in China, Zhao has been tasked with incorporating the agency's strong social creativity into a blended digital creative department, as well as helping identify and pursue new business opportunities.

She has also won awards at Cannes, EFFIE Great China, OneShow, The Festival of Media Awards, China 4As, LongXi NOVA and ROI Festival.

"Digital is now everywhere in China, so creativity is not only about going broad, but going deep. We're creating possibilities in life, connections with people and their surroundings, and subconsciously trying to change behaviour and perceptions. My approach is to focus on storytelling, rather than on gimmicks, special effects or technology for technology's sake," said Zhao (pictured above).
