A Hertford internal communications specialist will line up alongside some of the country’s most successful companies as it competes for a leading UK industry award.

CommsQuest Consulting Ltd has been named as the East of England’s Most Promising New Business, sponsored by BT Business.  

The company is now a finalist in its category for the UK title in the Chamber Awards hosted by the British Chambers of Commerce, which were created to celebrate the UK’s most successful businesses.

John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, said: “The health of the UK’s economy relies upon the confidence of our businesses to grow, invest and create jobs. That’s why the British Chambers of Commerce has been working hard to ensure government makes good on its promises to encourage enterprise, and do everything in its power to help businesses grow.

“All the good things we want to see in society depend on business and wealth creation. These awards provide a snapshot of some of the most impressive companies from across the country. Many of these business owners are working day in day out to build upon the companies they have built from scratch, creating jobs in local communities, and contributing to the economic recovery we so desperately need. We’re delighted to be able to celebrate the success of these companies through the Chamber Awards.”


The ‘disarmingly honest’ Mangrove Drive company helps firms engage staff in order to deliver business goals. Engaged people provide extra commitment and go that extra mile, CommsQuest delivers its service to UK businesses and has already had some success in Switzerland, Denmark and Belgium.

Having won a regional award, CommsQuest is now in the running for the national title in its category, as well as the chance to collect the Award for Outstanding Business Achievement – with a top prize of £25,000 and runner up prizes of £15,000 and £10,000. 

There are nine categories, backed by high profile sponsors including RBS and NatWest, BT Business, BT Directories, Dell, DHL Express, the British Standards Institution (BSI), AXA PPP healthcare and Westfield Health. The national winners will be announced at a ceremony at London’s Grand Connaught Rooms on November 24th 2011.
