Online training firm receives Queen's Award for Enterprise
Mind Tools, whose UK base is in West Sussex, has been awarded a Queen's Award for Enterprise for its achievements in International Trade.
The online training firm offers over 1,000 online leadership, management and career development resources to clients around the world. Last year more than 80% of the company's sales came from overseas. The company has 7 UK employees and 22 staff worldwide.
James Manktelow, founder and CEO of Mind Tools, and author of seven books on leadership and team management, said: "We are incredibly proud to be amongst today's Queen's Award winners.
"We're in the business of helping other people achieve excellence - so to be honoured for our own business excellence is particularly satisfying.
"We have no doubt that our Queen's Award will give the business a tremendous boost both here and overseas. We have fantastic team of people here at Mind Tools, and this is really great recognition for everyone's hard work."
Rachel Thompson, director of the Mind Tools Club, added: "Our aim is to equip business people around the world with all the skills and training they need to make the most of their lives and careers.
"450,000 people are signed up to our weekly e-newsletter, and 250,000 have downloaded our mobile apps since we launched them last year.
"The business has grown largely through recommendation, and our Queen's Award will really help cement our global reputation."
The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are announced annually on 21st April. Winners are entitled to use the Queen's Award Emblem in their marketing for 5 years as a marque of their success. Each winning company is presented with a trophy by a representative of Her Majesty at a ceremony at its offices later in the year. Winners are also invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace.
Business and enterprise minister, Mark Prisk said: "The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the highest accolade a business can receive.
"The standard of this year's winners highlights the great work taking place by businesses of all sizes to help boost the growth of the UK economy.
"I hope that it will inspire more entrepreneurs to start or grow their business as we look to make 2012 the year of enterprise.
"It is a fantastic achievement for all of the businesses that have received an award and I would like to congratulate them on making such a valuable contribution across all business sectors."
