KC Communications Named Eaton Smith Business of the Month

By July 19, 2016Stories

We are delighted to announce that KC Communications has been named Eaton Smith Business of the Month.

The awards, which were established in 1995 recognise the outstanding efforts of businesses in the Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield areas.

KC Communications, which is approaching the end of its second year in business, has seen record growth following a number of recent account wins and an expanding scope of requirements from existing clients which means the business on track to increase turnover by at least 70% this financial year.

The Business of the Month judges were impressed with the development of the business within a short time and the drive that Managing Director, Katrina Cliffe has demonstrated in growing her business, contributing to the business community through lobbying various organisations and developing others through using apprentice and intern schemes, providing work experience and mentoring students.

Kate Booth, Partner at Eaton Smith and member of the judging panel said “We were also impressed that Katrina has recognised the benefit of using outside sources to improve efficiency within her business and establish a good business model that should stand her in good stead for the future.”

Katrina Cliffe, Founder and Managing Director of KC Communications commented: “I am absolutely delighted that KC Communications have been recognised as a worthy winner of the Eaton Smith Business of the Month award.

Having founded KC Communications a little under two years ago, I have strived to create a business that contributes positively to the local economy through jobs creation and addressing the skills gap whilst providing our clients with the exceptional marketing, PR and social media support they require to support their own business growth.

It has been a tiring, but extremely rewarding two years and I would like to thank both my existing and previous team members for enabling me to realise my vision. I look forward to seeing what year three and beyond has to offer whilst continuing to contribute positively to the local area”.

The win will see KC Communications being put forward for the Eaton Smith Business of the Year Award which will be take place in July 2017 at the Cedar Court Hotel, Huddersfield.
