UK Connect wins ‘fastest growing business’ award

UK Connect wins Fastest Growing Business accolade at the Business Excellence Forum

UK Connect (Formerly Countrywide Telecoms) won the accolade for Fastest Growing Business at the annual Business Excellence Forum and Awards in Liverpool last week, a prestigious event attended by more than 2,000 international business leaders, entrepreneurs and experts.

The Business Excellence Awards – organised by business coaching firm Action Coach – celebrates the ‘best of the best’ in pro-growth business practice and rewards outstanding results by entrepreneurial companies. This prize recognises the speed and agility with which UK Connect has grown its business in the past year, by adapting its model for delivery to its expanding client base including respected housebuilders such as CALA Homes and Taylor Wimpey.

A selection of speakers were present at the two-day forum event, including footballing hero Kenny Daglish and author and entrepreneur Sharon Lechter. Successful business guru Baroness Karren Brady also took part, sharing her own experiences of growing a business and turning West Ham Football Club into one of the most profitable sporting organisations in the world.
