StrategiQ Marketing has been announced as the winner of the Small and Medium Business award, sponsored by Beckett Investment Management Group, at the Suffolk Business Awards 2020.

StrategiQ’s entry was thorough and well-represented with great clarity on the value it delivers for its clients. The digital marketing business has a good growth trajectory in spite of Covid-19.

New people are now being brought in after a restructure, and the team has developed a sound, holistic approach to getting the best for clients.

This was a very strong entry from a company which puts a lot of thought into what it does, and is a shining example of how an unswerving focus on a set of core values can enable a business to thrive.

Like all companies, Covid-19 has brought its own set of challenges and opportunities. StrategiQ’s well established employee engagement strategy has ensured that the team has remained energised and focused on their customers’ needs.

“To be named as the Small and Medium Business winner in Suffolk is a huge accolade for our business and, more importantly, the team that made it happen,” said Andy Smith, founder and CEO.

“While we are confident in our business model, it is still humbling to know that our efforts over the past seven years have been recognised by other businesses in the region, many of whom have inspired us throughout our own journey.

“This year has been incredibly challenging for lots of companies, but this really demonstrates that if you have a plan and the 
right culture, you can continue to build a great business.”
