Todd Sampson: international man of chivalry

todd-sampsonLeo Burnett boss and conscience of The Gruen Transfer Todd Sampson’s star is set to rise even higher, Dr Mumbo is delighted to note.  

Sampson is one of four on the shortlist for Chivas Regal’s Man of Chivalry Award, which is being presented as part of this year’s GQ Man of the Year Awards.

According to the citation, the nomination comes for his contribution to the creation of Earth Hour.

Sampson finds himself competing with fellow TV personality Larry Emdur from Seven’s The Morning Show who is shortlisted along with the rest of the crew of the Loyal Foundation Yacht which took part in the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race to raise funds for charity.

Also in the running are surgeon Don Esmore and St Kilda Football Club sports psychologist Sean Richardson.

Somewhat harshly, in the organisers’ announcement they say that Sampson is 44. Dr Mumbo has it on good authority that he is in fact 40.

The winner is announced on November 30.
