We are thrilled to have received the UK’s highest award for business, for the second time. Our founders have been invited to Buckingham Palace for a Royal reception.
Two years ago, we received the Queen’s Award for Innovation. This time, we received it in recognition of our achievements in International Trade, for “Measurably growing the world’s leading web companies by redesigning their websites using a customer-centric methodology.”
We love the international nature of our work, and how it has exposed us to so many great people and experiences. And we are thrilled to have helped to grow businesses in 37 countries in 11 languages, with our team members based around the world.
Here’s the email we received:
Thank you to our clients—and team members—for making it possible.
The reception at Buckingham Palace
Our company was represented at Buckingham Palace by our founders, Ben Jesson and Dr Karl Blanks. They entered the palace via the iconic route used for royal weddings and state events: through the main gates, past The Queen’s guards, through the palace’s central archway, and then onto the red carpet of the Grand Entrance.
A visit from The Queen’s Lord-Lieutenant
Soon after, The Queen’s Lord-Lieutenant visited our offices. He presented us with our commemorative crystal and certificate, and he raised the royal flag.
The day was planned to coincide with our company get-together. It was a great occasion for our team members.
Here are some photos from the day:
