Simply HQ began life in Staffordshire as an award winning membership network for stand out indie businesses. Simply Staffordshire celebrates, supports and connects hand picked indie businesses and, after 5 years, is spreading it’s wings. Simply Staffordshire is becoming Simply Great Britain and launches this November.
What grew and flourished in Staffordshire will now be available to all amazing indie businesses in Great Britain. Small, independent businesses & sole traders make up 93% of all business in the UK and Simply Great Britain celebrates all that is life enhancing about them. Not only do we celebrate amazing, inspirational business owners through our directory, blog and storytelling on social media but we also celebrate the benefits to us all when we buy handpicked, stand out and local. Our magazine style website provides inspiration for simple living, slow food, buying independent and making life beautiful.
To help our members flourish we provide support in the form of workshops, exclusive content and coaching as well as sign posting to other partner organisations like WiRE, Chambers of Commerce and University Business Schools.
Finally our members connect and collaborate. We facilitate opportunities for members to work together and shine a light on member exclusives and special offers.
Emily Whitehead, founder, says, “Simply Staffordshire started by accident when I wanted to list amazing local businesses on my holiday accommodation website. I am thrilled that Simply is now ready for a national platform and can’t believe my luck that I get to work with such inspirational businesses every day.”
