Celebrating the leaders in the small business community – 20 October 2016 | Grand Connaught Rooms, London
The stage was set on Oct 20th to celebrate British Small Businesses.
Denise O’Leary Founder of Purpol Marketing was delighted to be recognised as one of the top Small Business Leaders.
The British Small Business Awards is the leading celebration of the UK’s small business sector, recognising the nation’s best sole traders, micro businesses and small companies – as well as the services providers and advisers that support them.
At the start of 2015, there were an estimated 5.3 million small businesses (defined as those with 0-49 employees) in the UK, accounting for 99.3 per cent of all private sector businesses. The combined annual turnover of small businesses was £1.2 trillion, 33 per cent of all private sector revenue in the UK.
Despite the vast proportion of small businesses among private companies, this vital sector does not get the recognition it deserves. Often described as the ‘engine room of the economy’, it is high time the small business community is commended for its efforts in providing quality products and services to customers and its significant contributions to Britain’s success.
