Blu Sky Rocket to Success Second Year Running

For the second year in a row, Blu Sky celebrated success at the NE Accountancy Awards. Winning the Independent Firm of the Year highlighted the exceptional 12 months of achievements highlighted by the judges, including 30% growth, nurturing and developing an outstanding team environment, expanding nationally supported by the launch of their own forecasting and reporting product, Blu Prints, and becoming Xero Platinum partners. Blu Sky were delighted to accept the award, and thank their clients for the nominations.

Blu Sky differentiates themselves by provided bespoke packages to each client, looking after and supporting them through every aspect of the customer journey. In particular, relationships in the Tech and Creative sectors has encouraged a national reputation for delivering compliance, technical product support, management information and corporate finance support in a refreshingly unique manner.

Jon Dudgeon, co-founder, who was on holiday and watched the awards ceremony live through twitter and Youtube, commented that on the judging day Blu Sky branded hoodies and a Skype attendee in co-founder Dave Gibson clearly demonstrated the laid-back but tech-savvy culture of Blu Sky and underpinned the quality of our innovative service culture.

Blu Sky are committed to nurturing talent from within. They know that a healthy work/life balance is one of the best benefits a company can provide, so flexible working hours are a reality, and a hosted desktop solutions means the team can work from anywhere. An open plan office layout encourages collaboration for ideas and challenges. Combined with a flat management structure, this creates a strong culture of trust amongst the team, as does the office dress down policy and regular social events!

Last year, Blu Sky were crowned Small Accountancy Firm of the Year. Taking it a step further and being up against the likes of larger firms and still to win proves what the team said last year, that they still had work to do to get to where they want to be. 12 months later, and positive steps are being made; being recognised for those has boosted the team morale to an even higher state.

Of the Awards Evening, Co-founder Dave said, “It was a very special night to cap a very special year. It was particularly pleasing to win for a second year in succession against a short list of high quality competition. The credit goes to a close knit team who have rolled their sleeves up and relentlessly attacked every challenge and opportunity with gusto.”
