New Skills Academy is thrilled to announce that we received two awards at the Hertfordshire Business Awards. The ceremony was held at Knebworth Barns on 23 November, where entrepreneurs and companies across 16 different categories exemplified why this region is known across the UK for its excellence in business. Each category was filled with amazing nominees, each of whom has contributed to the community in a meaningful way.
Our co-founder, Chris Morgan, was awarded with the Business Person of the Year award. This is the second award that Chris has won this week for his hard work and dedication to bringing e-learning to individuals across the globe. We are very proud of him for all he has overcome and all he has accomplished. It is wonderful to see Chris get such fantastic recognition for his vision and we hope this encourages other young entrepreneurs with a dream to pursue their goals.
New Skills Academy was also honoured at this year’s Hertfordshire Business Awards with the Small Business of the Year award. We began as a very small company, offering about 500 courses a month to e-learners around the world. Thanks to everyone’s hard work, we have dramatically increased the number of courses offered. We are on the way to achieving a huge milestone of 100,000 registered students. Bringing e-learning to the masses has been our goal since day one and we are incredibly flattered to have received this award. It sends a wonderful message that with hard work, any small business can become as successful as its founders and staff members want.
