National SQP Awards winners announced

SQPs from across the UK have been recognised for their outstanding professionalism and commitment to their training at the National SQP Awards 2020, which were streamed live yesterday afternoon.

The National SQP Awards was hosted by TV presenter Mark Durden-Smith.

Simon King, OvertheCounter’s editor, said: “The fourth National SQP Awards have been a fantastic success and I am delighted that SQPs from across the UK have been recognised for their commitment to their customers.

“In these challenging times, SQPs have done a fantastic job and it was great to reward their contributions to the sector.
“I’d also like to thank the sponsors that supported the National SQP Awards and I’d also like to encourage even more SQPs to enter the 2021 awards programme. I know from speaking to some of the winners how proud they were to win an award and I firmly believe that winners should shout about their win in their community as winning a national award can drive a business forward. Well done to all the winners and those who were also highly commended.”
