Two nods for Sookio in SME Cambs Business Awards 2019
We’re delighted to become a finalist for the second year running in two categories in the SME Cambs Business Awards.
What are we up for?
Community Business of the Year
As a small business, we like to think we punch above our weight when it comes to being charitable. We're not a big tech giant with a huge Corporate Social Responsibility budget it's more that we understand the potential for businesses to play a positive role in the community and we weave this into everything we do.
So we're really proud to be up for this award! What have we been up to over the past year....?
Also on the doorstep is Anglia Ruskin University, where we just took part in a three-week mentoring project with students on the BA Animation and Illustration course.
2019 also saw us take our first work experience placements and run our first apprenticeship, enabling us to help the next generation enter the industry.
Website of the Year
As specialists in digital content, we are always advising people on their website - how to make it engaging, accessible and easy to navigate. So when it came to relaunching our own site just before Christmas, we wanted to put our money where out mouths were.
We're happy to say we've had a continual stream of glowing comments from people telling us they love the bold colours, the clear content and the overall confident look and feel.
Our cover girl, Betsy, has also won lots of fans. She's named after Sue's little Welsh firecracker of an aunt, who died aged 95 the week the new website went live. She'd be delighted about the nomination!
Special thanks to our Squarespace designer Krishna Solanki, who has made sure it's structurally sound behind the scenes. She'll be joining us at the awards do - let's hope we have lots to celebrate!
Sookio was also nominated in two categories in 2018. The Woodfines Business of the Year Less than 50 Employees award and the Anglia Ruskin University Business Innovation award
This years SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards Final will be held on 4 July at the Imperial War Museum. Hopefully we’ll have lots to celebrate. Wish us luck!
