Winning this award for best use of technology is hugely important for kinetic six and our clients. To have the UK industries finest recognise our hard work and tenacity in areas that we are so passionate about is absolutely incredible. It provides a whole new level of evidence when conversing with potential clients both in the UK and internationally, where a lot of our work is based.
Being a finalist or winning a category encourages us to continually develop to be the best, ensuring we are moving forward as rapidly as technology is advancing, which is certainly no easy feat. It is an absolute honour to have the support of the industry in the form of an award and we hope to be back next year

It was a great privilege to win the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce award for Employer of the Year. The accolade has enabled us to promote the charity to a wider audience, which has attracted extensive news coverage, further corporate partnership support, and high calibre candidates during a recent recruitment process.
We work really hard to ensure great Social Media output and so I’m incredibly proud of the team for achieving this fantastic award and I’d like to thank the British Chamber of Commerce and our own Chamber in Worcestershire and Herefordshire for recognising the work we do. It’s a great boost for the team to be recognised and it’s been a great experience to both receive the rewards and to get the recognition.
