In 2014, hundreds of companies competed for the UK’s Great Tech Award.

On December 09, 2014, Prince William, His Royal Highness, the Duke of Cambridge and New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio, presented the award to Critical Mention’s CEO Sean Morgan.

This prestigious award, presented on behalf of UK Trade & Investment, encourages the best overseas companies to look to the UK as their global partner of choice. As an existing partner in the UK with the leading public relations platforms and more than a hundred TV and radio stations, Critical Mention won.

Critical Mention is unique.
