Guidance Navigation crowned Regional Winner in HSBC Global Connections competition

June News

Guidance Navigation has been crowned one of the two regional SME winners from the Midlands for the Global Connections 2014 competition – a HSBC initiative to find the UK’s most innovative and forward thinking companies. The HSBC Global Connections initiative is founded on the belief that expansion and success for UK businesses is likely to come to those that venture beyond their home territories and take their products and services into the growth markets of the future.

As a regional winner, Guidance will go through to the national final of the competition to compete with 14 other businesses from across the UK, where there will be 3 prizes awarding excellence in innovation, international trade, and mid-market growth. Guidance can also gain access to lending facilities up to £6m, linked to a financial reward of up to £120,000 which is doubled for the national winners.

A stand out winner, the company’s ambition is an example of what the Global Connections judges described as the “infectious passion” of the Guidance Navigation leadership team. The judges also praised the group’s history of innovation, continuous development of product and superb thought leadership.

Having beaten other distinguished companies within the Midlands, and receiving the Queen’s Award for International Trade earlier this year, Guidance’s trophy cabinet continues to impress. The company continues to be recognised as a leading technology business further highlighting the work of all our staff members. These awards would not be obtainable if it was not for their contribution, drive and expertise.
