Exhibit at the HSBC Small Business Pop Up Week

Whilst we are gearing up for our first of the regional Women in Business Awards of 2016, we thought we would share some exciting news from our partners HSBC on how they are continuing to support small businesses, like many who are included in our shortlist.

Our partner HSBC is hosting pop-up events for Small Business Week in their London head offices to showcase small businesses to their 10,000 employees and members of the public, and would like to invite Forward Ladies members to take part to promote their brands. Last year they hosted a fantastic collection of businesses ranging from bikes to lingerie!

Commenting on the day, Jenny Parrett, Owner at Woofs & Wiggles said:

“We want to thank HSBC for inviting us to the Colchester branch where we had a chance to meet potential new customers and show case our fantastic day-care offering. Our ability to provide such a service would not have been possible without continued support.”

 The event will take place at 8 Canada Square, London, E14 5HQ on the 19th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd September between 11.30am and 2.30pm. If you would like to go along to the event or have any questions please email:

SmallBusinessWeek@hsbc.com by Monday 29th August 2016. Please give your first & second choice of preferred date, along with details of your business and what you would like to bring to showcase. One of the organisers from HSBC Small Business Week will respond to your email to finalise details and give further information.
