We are delighted to announce that this year’s winner of the GDST Trailblazer Award is Shrewsbury High School alumna, Amy Williams.
Amy is the founder and CEO of Good-Loop, an ethical online advertising platform, created to meet the urgent need for more ethical, transparent and effective online advertising. Good-Loop technology creates and distributes ‘ethical ad formats’ to premium websites and social platforms globally. Once someone chooses to engage with the advert they then unlock a free donation, funded by the advertiser, and can choose which cause they would like to support. The charities Good-Loop partners with include WaterAid and Save the Children.
“My time at GDST gave me the confidence to believe I can do anything and the friends to know that when I inevitably fail, it won’t keep me down”
