Nominated for prestigious international tech award!

· 2 minute read

This month has been a bumper month for the Brightbulb team, having been recognised locally at the IW Radio Awards and nationally after being nominated for a UK Company Culture Award for our initiative, The Mince Pie Marathon. But now we are ecstatic to say we have been recognised on a global scale. Brightbulb have been shortlisted for an international award at the Global Business Tech Awards 2024 in the ‘Small Tech Company of the Year’ category.

We are extremely appreciative, not just of our team who make the magic happen, but to our clients who trust us to innovate their tech and amplify their brand across various markets. These awards are all about showcasing the best tech from around the world. As tech continues to infiltrate everything from our daily lives to our working routines, these awards seek to celebrate how emerging and existing tech is overcoming challenges, creating new opportunities, and achieving strategic goals and return on investment (ROI).

Managing Director, Matt Jeffery explains,

“We work on some amazing tech projects here at Brightbulb, the largest of which are behind closed doors with no fanfare, due to the sensitive nature of these projects. Several of our tech projects are for businesses in other countries or those with global reach and so its tremendous to be recognised on an international level for what our team do on a daily basis.”

For digital businesses like us, headquartered in a more remote area of the UK, there are specific challenges that we face, as Fiona, our Head of Happiness explains,

“Being based on a small Island off the south coast of England is both to be celebrated but also comes with some challenge. The Isle of Wight has a population of c.140,000 which sounds a lot but is actually fairly small when it comes to recruitment for most businesses based here, particularly those like us who need specialist skills and expertise. However, having been determined to provide not only a welcoming and vibrant physical workplace environment but also by prioritising our company culture with kindness at its heart, we have been able to attract great tech talent, to build what i believe, is the best team we have ever had at Brightbulb.”

The award winners will be announced on the 9th May 2024.
