The award—a Queen’s Award for Enterprise—was given to us in recognition of us codifying the scientific methodology that companies like Google and Amazon now use to improve websites.
Here’s the email we received (we were stunned by it):
The reception at Buckingham Palace
Our company was represented at Buckingham Palace by our founders, Ben Jesson and Dr Karl Blanks. They arrived by taxi. (It’s surreal to get into a taxi and say, “Buckingham Palace, please.”) 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.
Inside, Ben and Karl were fortunate to meet Her Majesty The Queen; Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh; Princess Anne, The Princess Royal; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex—with whom they had the opportunity to discuss diverse issues including teaching technology in schools; working internationally; making websites accessible; and helping charities online.
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 our 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:
