Judges praised the impressive content and speakers and good use of social media to fit the target market at One Young World, a global summit for young leaders delivered by Brand Fuel.

The 2011 event in Zurich featured Desmond Tutu and attracted 1,200 delegates, up from 800 at the first event in 2010, which was made possible by increased sponsorship from businesses and other organisations.
