Glal.uk, a Worcester-based Furniture and Lighting company, were recently picked as a weekly winner of the Small Business Sunday award, where businesses can enter by using the #SBS hashtag on twitter, with six lucky winners picked each week. The winners of the award are then retweeted by Theo, to almost half a million followers and added to the #MYSBS members area, exclusively for other SBS winners.
Winners of the prestigious award attend an annual Small Business Sunday event to collect their certificate and meet other winners. This year’s award marked Ten years of #SBS and was held at the ICC in Birmingham, attended by over 900 other winners, in addition to sponsors Ryman, DHL, iLaw and Robert Dyas.
Winners were also treated to presentations from Google Digital Garage, LinkedIn, MIND, NatWest and a fireside chat between Theo Paphitis and Dragon’s Den’s Sara Davies MBE.
“It’s amazing to receive recognition from such a successful entrepreneur,” says Glal.uk’s Tom Emblem. “We enjoyed the day, it was great to meet some of the other winners of this award”.
