Global consumer insight agency, Join the Dots, celebrates further award success as the company was named ‘High Growth Business of the Year’ by the British Chamber of Commerce at its annual Chamber Business awards held in London.
The company, which has celebrated its 20th year of business in 2018, has consistently achieved 20 per cent revenue growth for the last five years and 18 per cent staff growth in the last 12 months. The growth has come from both UK and international client business, leading to and supported by an office in New York, which opened in 2017.
The High Growth Business of the Year category recognises businesses that have experienced exceptional growth in sales, profit, market share, jobs or international trade. The judges were impressed by Join the Dots’ implementation of a digital innovation strategy using online insight communities, and demonstration of the business’ dedication to both staff and clients.
Join the Dots, members of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, were put forward to the national awards after winning the regional High Growth Business award in September. They were the only consumer insight agency represented at a national level at the awards.
Graeme Lawrence, chief client officer at Join the Dots, said: “We are extremely proud of the whole team for their hard work and unwavering commitment to Join the Dots’ success. To be recognised with such a prestigious business accolade is a real achievement and a fantastic way to see out our 20th year. We continue to build on our recognised growth with new clients and projects on the horizon for 2019, as well as the launch of our new Insight Ecosystem.”
Francis Martin, President of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said: “Join the Dots is a fantastic example of dynamic British business at its best. They have a truly impressive track record in terms of revenue and staff growth, and ambitious plans for the future. With a global client base and an innovative digital strategy, they are truly worthy recipients of this award.”
