Announced at the EdTech Europe Conference in London on 12 June 2014, with competition from more than 100 companies, Brightwave achieved a top 6 position for success in respect of innovation, scale, market impact and revenue growth over the past year.
Judged by an industry-leading panel including representatives from TSL, Pearson and Emerge Education, the entries from 15 European countries highlighted a number of key trends in the education technology space, including the rise of the virtual classroom, language learning and tools for enhancing workplace and professional industry training.
The conference addressed current e-learning industry and investment trends and brought together key executives from professional and academic learning and investors with an interest in the sector.
Brightwave's CEO Charles Gould chaired an interactive panel session exploring the position that vocational training currently occupies in the market, and the key issues of technology-enhanced delivery and government funding in this area.
Charles Gould said: "Reaching the finals of this year's EdTech Europe Conference is a significant achievement for Brightwave and recognises the investment and advances we've made in innovation. We have continued to invest in the development of high quality bespoke learning solutions and have seen further commercial success and outstanding market impact with our total learning system tessello. Our consultative approach and ability to respond quickly to our clients' needs has seen us attract new business from a number of new global organisations, including 3M and Coca-Cola."
