It’s not long until The Business Exchange hosts its annual technology awards for Swindon and Wiltshire, The Techies, on Thursday 4th November.
Ahead of awards night we spoke to Daniel O’Connor and Veronica Hannon Founders of Bradford on Avon-based Transform Digital, finalist in the Best Tech Start-up category sponsored by CND.
Transform Digital was set up through lockdown in 2020 and offers digital marketing services from website design to search engine optimisation, graphic design, photography and videography.
Providing an integrated and joined-up approach, Transform Digital’s vision is to help businesses optimise digital channels to forge new connections in their market. The firm’s ethos is about building connections. Not just measuring clicks.
How does it feel to be a finalist?
It’s amazing. We started Transform Digital in the middle of a pandemic and being finalists a year after launch is such an achievement. It’s been a difficult year by any standards, and to see us grow in leaps and bounds has been incredible. The team’s grown, our client portfolio has grown – and we hope our trophy cabinet will grow too!
What are you planning for awards night?
We’ve bought our tickets and we’re ready for the awards night – with the celebration hamper in hand! As we’ve adopted a hybrid work mode, it’ll be great to get the team together again for the awards ceremony. We wish everyone nominated the very best of luck – it’ll be a fantastic chance to celebrate the wealth of talent we’ve got in Swindon and Wiltshire.
What would a Techie Award mean to you and your team?
Even being shortlisted is great recognition of the wonderful work that the team has achieved over the past year. It’s been phenomenal watching them work while the world has been turned on its head. There have been so many challenges that the team has overcome without even breaking a sweat. From going into lockdowns, to coming back out of lockdowns, with everything else that life entails on top of the pandemic – we couldn’t be prouder. We’re even more inspired to continue connecting, working, and growing into the future.
How are you sharing the news with your networks?
Apart from the champagne emojis flying across the team WhatsApp group, both Transform Digital and our big sister company Transform Communications have been proudly shouting about the news on our social media networks. We’ve also been mentioning The Techies and The Business Exchange to our clients and friends on calls and in meetings – it’s such exciting news that we can’t help telling as many people as possible.
On awards night Transform Digital are up against Futurum Consulting, ShopHub and Red Rose Technologies. To see the full list of Techies 2021 finalists click here.
