Small Business Support

Simply Great Britain supports independent, small, micro & freelance business owners to grow and develop to create the business of their dreams.

We offer support and help to small, independent, micro and freelance business owners who want to develop their businesses in just the way that suits them and their chosen lives.  We know it isn’t always about being on Dragon’s Den or achieving huge profits or becoming a corporate giant, but more about building something really special that fits in with your life and delivers a lifestyle you love. We do this in 3 ways:

Business Courses and Events

We offer a range of online courses giving you the practical help you need at a pace you can manage.  We also host business retreats including My Indie Business Day – inspirational days to gather, connect and learn with experts that share your journey. These are open to any small business owners but Simply Great Britain members enjoy a 20% on all courses and events.

Marketing help just for Members.

Members of Simply Great Britain receive exclusive, free support to help them with their marketing, work life balance and top tips on running a business that they love. We send out weekly How To Guides – a bite sized chunk of help every Monday and live Q&A sessions.  All members enjoy access to a knowledge bank of webinars, How To Guides and more in our Member Area.

Working with businesses – big & small.
Work with me, Emily – founder of Simply Great Britain.

I work with a huge range of small business owners, bigger business, organisations and public sector groups but it is worth noting that Simply Great Britain members get a 20% discount when working with me.

I am the founder of Simply Great Britain and have worked in business as a trainer, speaker, coach and mentor for over 20 years (longer version of the story this way). My approach to business is an holistic one, never losing sight of the fact that owning a business has to be sustainable for body, mind and spirit (not to mention the planet).

I am a business owner just like you & am very aware that most people start a business of their own as part of a big life change following previous careers & lives; to create a beautiful life with balance or to fulfil a long held dream to make life better in some way. It is on this basis that I work closely with my clients to develop skills and confidence in story telling, marketing and building a business that creates the beautiful life you want.

I also get the bigger picture too. My life in the corporate world taught me much but most of all that there has to be an holistic approach. This means people, places & planet. If you work like this too but need another pair of eyes and ears to move forward, make changes, master your storytelling, empower your people & connect with your customers then let’s talk some more.

My approach is down to earth, full of empathy, fun and without the jargon. To work with me, get me to speak at an event or simply arrange a proper chat, please get in touch .

As I mentioned above, I’ve worked with a large range of different enterprises, organisations and groups. This is not a show off thing but I get it, you need to know I’ve actually done stuff. Apart from the literally 100s of small, micro & freelance businesses in pretty much all sectors, here are just a few that you might have heard of.
