We were privileged to be invited the Small Business Saturday 100 Blue Tie event in London to celebrate being one of the 100 businesses throughout the UK to participate in this years campaign.
We met lots of other interesting and innovative businesses on the night and heard keynote speech from Olly Sewell the head of SMB EMEA at Facebook. We also met Michelle Oven MBE, Chairman of Small Business Saturday.
Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.
The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. In 2017 Small Business Saturday is on Saturday, December 2nd.
On Small Business Saturday, customers across the U.K go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores. Many small businesses take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.
On the 16th November we look forward to our day in the social media spotlight along with the Smallbiz100 tour bus visiting our home town of Maldon. If you’re in town pop along and say hello!
