Another accolade for Sign 2000
Sign 2000 has won the Business of the Year Award for the South in a hotly contested competition that involved hundreds of entries from the Kent and Sussex areas. The award, which coincided with the company’s 25th anniversary, was a fitting tribute to the success of Sign 2000 over that period and gave cause for a double celebration.
The Business of the Year Award is an annual business initiative created by ActionCOACH, the world’s leading business coaching franchise with over 1200 business coaches strategically located throughout the world. The Sign 2000 award came via the ActionCOACH outlet in East Sussex and local Action Business Coach Lucy Cameron.
Two years ago, Sign 2000 moved to larger premises in Tonbridge, a move necessitated by the demands of its strong client base, which includes some of the UK’s largest blue chip companies, such as Whitbread, Superdrug and the Post Office, and also engaged the services of Lucy Cameron of ActionCOACH to help implement some key strategies. These included leveraging technology and developing a dashboard for the company’s key performance indicators, ensuring the appropriate level of manpower for each project and intercommunication between Sign 2000 and customers’ teams, leading to the creation of 14 new jobs for that area of Kent.
Sign 2000 Sales Director, Neil Scott commented: “Lucy encouraged us to ask our clients and the company’s own staff what they liked about the services and in what areas improvements could be made, monitoring the responses and putting in place a programme that reflected how the company should go forward.”
Managing Director, Murray Crompton added: “Employing an Action Business Coach has kept us focussed on key issues and has definitely helped push our business forward. It is surprising how far we have come in a relatively short time and we have ambitious plans for the future. Lucy has helped us gain clarity on what we need to do to achieve our objectives. We have a fantastic team and together we will continue delivering a great service and products to our burgeoning customer base.”
