Says Worthington: "Over the years, by osmosis, the One Club has taught me to be a better writer, a sharper thinker. It's an honour to now be on the inside helping to inspire others on the outside."

Says Tutssel: "The One Club has been a stalwart of creative excellence in the industry, celebrating its legacy yet acting as a constant inspiration for the future. I'm honoured to play a greater role with The One Club along with other influential figures in the business of creativity."

Says Sims: "After college, I went out one day with money I'd saved to buy a new mattress and came home with a One Show annual. So from the beginning it was pretty clear I wasn't cut out for business school. Now it's just an incredible honor to be joining an amazing group of people on the Board of what has always been advertising's pre-eminent textbook on how to do it right."

Says John: "I'm thrilled and honoured to be joining The One Club Board. I've been a huge fan of the show, the organization, and their focus on creative development. I'm really looking forward to working with this amazing group of people."

Says Favat: "The One Club stands for the highest creative integrity in our industry. I'm honored to be chosen to help carry that torch."

Says Inamoto: "I feel fortunate to live in a time that we are in now. The next ten years of the One Club will be more dramatic than the previous ten. I couldn't be more excited."
