UK small business owner, Rowena Howie, appeared on Sky News on Friday lunchtime.
Rowena appeared with Michelle Ovens, the Director of Small Business Saturday UK. Michelle is an expert in small business enterprise and organises this grassroots nationwide campaign.
Michelle lead with details of the launch of the Small Biz100. In the 100 day run up to Small Business Saturday each year the campaign highlights 100 small businesses; what they do, how they are actively involved in their communities and what they contribute.
Rowena who is a Small Business 100 alumni was able to support Michelle with insight and experience as a small business owner , talking about why this campaign is so important.
Picking 100 out of the 5.6 million small businesses in the UK must be incredibly hard but for Rowena it was an honour to have her small business, Revival Retro, picked as one of the 100 in 2016. Having had my turn I now choose to support the campaign as a small business 'Hero" and I enjoy being able to talk, get to know and support the amazing small businesses out there who care, are passionate about what they do, who create jobs, who contribute to the economy and who are the life blood of the UK.
