BIRMINGHAM – April 29th, 2021 – GuyKat wins Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade.

The outstanding export-led growth of GuyKat, a Birmingham based eLearning agency, is to be honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade.

The award was formally announced in the delayed Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

The company doubled revenue between 2019-20 with 70% of sales coming from outside the UK. Full-permanent staff increased from 25 to 40, including the opening of an office in Tampa, Florida.

GuyKat’s products and services include bespoke eLearning courses, services related to the implementation and use of corporate Learning Management Systems and software development. The business helps clients teach online things that historically they would have taught in person. Overseas Sales has more than tripled in the last three years by focussing on Europe and North America. However, they have deployed learning in more than 50 countries across all continents. GuyKat takes a long-term view by engaging apprentices, graduates and first job change roles, supported with a training plan. Repeat sales rely on relationships. GuyKat have sponsored specific trade shows in Boston, Toronto and Atlanta, invested in getting their team over to the United States to meet their clients, and have acquired a sales office in Florida. 

Guy McEvoy, GuyKat’s CEO, said: “I did a little jig when I found out. We realised early on that any digital company needs a global mindset. If you think of your market as ‘‘the Midlands’ or ‘The UK’, that’s fine – but thinking of ‘the World’ obviously gives so much more opportunity. Technology makes geography incidental. We saw demand in North America and have been proud to help turn that into jobs here in Birmingham. It’s great for a company like us to get this sort of recognition.”
