Small Business Saturday, Savvy Guest and the Stroke Association at Rise in Manchester on December 3rd



We aim to promote the benefits of Savvy Guest alongside other small businesses and we will be especially pro-active on December 3rd within our local communities. Currently we have identified there is a real disconnect for information sharing. We intend to have a Small Business pledge for businesses to register with Savvy Guest allowing us to go out and promote the pledge to career seekers.

Savvy Guest will be holding a Health and Well Being event in partnership with the Stroke Association on Saturday 3 December to promote Small Business Saturday. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to come along to our event.

The event will take place at,  Rise, 231 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4EN.

We will be offering 3 sessions on the day. 

11.30 – 12.30
12.45 – 1.30

Please book via email

On the day you will receive a free blood pressure check assisted by Scott Smith of the Stroke Association.

Please drop in after or before you have visited the infamous Manchester Christmas Markets. We look forward to meeting you.

Small Business Saturday is already the UK’s most successful small business campaign. This is the fourth year of the campaign, which last year saw £623m spent with small businesses across the UK on Small Business Saturday, an increase of £119m or 24 per cent on the previous year. The campaign trended at number one in the UK on Twitter on the day with more than 100,000 campaign-related tweets being sent. Over 75% of local councils supported the campaign, giving considerable national reach into local communities.

The campaign is a great nationwide promotional and marketing tool for small businesses. It is totally free to participate and any small businesses can get involved – from one-man-bands, through to a high growth office, and from tradesmen to social media gurus. In addition to the big day, the campaign also delivers help and advice alongside opportunities to connect with other small businesses. In short, Small Business Saturday exists to support, inspire and promote small businesses.

The British public has a great affection for small businesses and we continue to see that grow year on year.  Small Business Saturday is an exceptional example of collaboration and co-operation with small businesses teaming up in communities around the UK,” explains Campaign Director Michelle Ovens.

“Although the campaign focuses on one day, the goal is to have a lasting impact on small businesses by changing mind-sets, so that people make it their mission to support small businesses all year round. Most people in this country own a small business, work for a small business or know somebody who does, so supporting a small business on Small Business Saturday is absolutely personal.”
