Strategi Solutions has, once again made it to the finals of the Growing Business Awards for the second year running in the ‘Business Advisor of the Year’ category.
The Awards honour the UK’s most outstanding entrepreneurs and high-growth businesses now entering their 23rd year they both recognise and celebrate the strength, vision and resilience of the country’s fast-growing SMEs.
Despite having to work from home throughout the pandemic, the shortlisting team deemed Strategi to be worthy finalists in the ‘Business Advisor of the Year’ category as they supported their clients over the past 18 months. The category recognises the contribution and importance of good quality advice from professional advisors and how it can be game-changing for a growing business. This award will recognise advisors who have helped their clients to deliver sustained growth and turnaround businesses over the last year.
Pitched against a number of nationally recognised contenders, Strategi is confident that this year it will be bringing home an award from the ceremony that will be held at The Grosvenor Hotel in London in November.
Founded just 6 years ago, Strategi has grown from a one-person HR consultancy operated by founder and CEO, Wendy Dean, to an end-to-end business consultancy offering services in a number of disciplines including HR, Marketing, Learning & Development, Health & Safety, Design and Recruitment with a team of over 20 employees and business associates on board.
Proud of its achievements so far and focused on its growth for the future, Wendy said,
“To reach the finals of the Growing Business Awards the second year in a row is a huge achievement for the whole Strategi team. After such a challenging 18 months it is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm of everyone involved. We’re proud of being recognised by the Growing Business Awards judges but equally delighted that the service we deliver has helped our client’s companies grow and prosper in the most difficult circumstances.
Strategi has supported recognised local and national businesses over the past six years, securing new contracts with some very familiar brands over the past 12 months including EV Cargo, Smyths Toys, Tuffnells and Wade Ceramics. Commenting on Strategi’s success, Managing Director Rob Fisher added,
“The team is thoroughly deserving of this award and we’re hoping that we’ll be recognised at the final in November. We’ve demonstrated that, over the past year, nothing can stand in our way; we have all pulled together through what has universally been a tough time and proved to our clients that we’re prepared go above and beyond, doing whatever it takes to help their business do and be better.”
All shortlisted finalists have been asked to attend a judging day on Friday 17th September, where they will meet with a panel of judges. The judges will then decide on a winner who will be announced at the awards ceremony that will be held at The Grosvenor Hotel in London on 24th November 2021.
After a period of 18 months absence, the Strategi team returned to their Newcastle-under-Lyme offices on 22nd July with a day of celebration as the lockdown restrictions were eased.
