If you love Twitter, or Dragons’ Den, or small business champions, you might have heard of Theo Paphitis’ #SBS. Small Business Sunday is an award designed to raise the profile and highlight the great work of small businesses across the UK and we are super proud to have been selected as one of July’s winners.
SBS has been established for ten years now and runs every week on Twitter. Small businesses tweet Theo to tell them a little bit about themselves and he selects the winners and announces them with a retweet the next evening. Our phones started pinging on the dot of 8pm and did not stop for a full week…
Good thing we’ve got the perfect congrats card to send ourselves ????
It’s been brilliant to make new connections, discover a whole world of small businesses we wouldn’t have ‘met’ otherwise and we absolutely can’t wait for the annual winner’s event. We’re so looking forward to having the chance to get out there, mingle, be inspired and raise a glass to small business owners everywhere!
Theo is totally passionate about small businesses and totally gets it. He says:
“I admire people who have passion and energy. If you cannot bore your friends to death about your own small business then something is seriously wrong.My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club. Like-minded individuals can share successes and learnings.I know I have been lucky in business and I am keen now to spread goodwill to others, of course not forgetting that very often, you make your own luck by making use of every opportunity.”
So a big thank you to Theo and his team; we’re delighted to be part of his network. And for those of you who are interested, this is the tweet that we won with:
