Kayak-King amongst Britain’s most successful companies

scoot kayak award

Scoot Headline Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s most successful companies.

We’re very proud to announce that Kayak-King has been crowned the best company in Wales by national business directory Scoot, in the Scoot National Headline Awards held on Monday 28th April. The annual SCOOT Awards is one of the most prestigious business awards in the UK that recognises and rewards the successes and achievements of British businesses, large and small. Actress and TV personality Ebony Feare presented the award to Ant Goddard, managing director of Kayak-King.

Awards day

On Monday, we travelled to the awards ceremony, held at Millbank Tower in London, having been shortlisted for the award earlier in the year. The event was attended by successful companies from all over the UK, ranging from small independent businesses such as hairdressers and letting agencies to large national companies.

After watching all the other winners of the awards for the regional nominations we were starting to wonder if we had been forgotten, at this point we had no idea that had been elevated into the National nominations… Then came the main event and we were thrilled to have won the Silver award. When presenting the award, the judges commented: “We were amazed to hear Ant Goddard’s story after deciding to go it alone with the mission of bringing a new level of quality to the activity market. Ant Goddard started his company with an estate car, some kayaks and a load of passion. Two years on the company goes from strength to strength with new employees, a perfect customer service record and is now one of the big providers in Britain’s activity industry. A massive achievement in such a small amount of time, proving passion and hard work pays off!”

As well as picking up our trophy and certificate which now take pride of place in the Kayak-King office, we made some great contacts at the event, some of whom we are planning to work within the near future – so all in all, it was a great day out! We’d like to thank Scoot for picking us as winners of the award, and we hope that this is the first of many awards for Kayak-King.
