We are delighted to offer our congratulations to all the 2019 Queen’s Awards winners, some of whom have attained the achievement for the first time and others who now hold multiple awards.

You have demonstrated excellence in international trade, innovation, sustainable development and promoting social mobility and the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise continue to constitute the highest honour to be bestowed on a UK company. Businesses of today are not only satisfying customers globally but doing so with a firm eye on environmental impact by finding new routes to sustainable practices.

And creating better futures for employees through the promotion of social mobility opportunities and sustainable business is at the heart of so many of the companies who have won awards this year; innovative thinking and technology have helped to make this a reality and pushing the boundaries has led to smarter business practice.

Any business carrying the Queen’s Awards logo receives a warm welcome internationally and the relevance of the awards has never been clearer. It has been an exceptional year in terms of breadth and diversity of the companies who entered and we look forward to watching their progress over the coming years.

We are delighted to feature interviews with members of the Queen’s Awards judging panel in the magazine for the first time and their insight, wisdom and enthusiasm makes this a must-read for award winners of the future and present alike!

We wish the winners continued success in 2019 and beyond.
