The Tour 2022
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
Join us as we celebrate The Tour’s ten-year anniversary!
The iconic Small Business Saturday UK Tour will hit the road again this November 2022!
Calling at twenty three different towns and cities across the UK, our special ten-year anniversary Tour will mark the official count-down to Small Business Saturday on 3 December.
Once again supported by BT Skills for Tomorrow, ‘The Tour’ will kick off in Glasgow on Monday 31st October and travel across the UK for five weeks, spotlighting Britain’s amazing small businesses, alongside a fantastic online programme full of business advice, support and inspiration!
We aim to be as sustainable as possible, given the vital role small firms play in the race to net zero, so we will be touring with a fleet of electric and zero-emissions vehicles.
What does The Tour involve?
We are planning an exciting line-up of activity in the locations we are travelling to, as well as a jam-packed schedule of expert interviews, workshops and mentoring online.
Each day we will visit inspiring small businesses that we meet on The Tour, livestreaming interviews with business owners and local leaders on our Instagram channel - @smallbizsatuk, as they show us the ropes at their businesses and around their local areas.
Once again, The Tour will offer free 1-1 mentoring sessions. A range of amazing business experts (including many from our incredible supporter BT!), will be available to offer individual help and advice on topics that business owners need help brainstorming. You will soon be able to book your virtual mentoring session via your My Small Business account (click on the The Tour 2022 tab).
The Tour will also offer a daily selection of free workshops on useful topics; from boosting your sales and digital marketing, to managing time and money better! More information on how to sign up for these sessions will be available soon.
Yes, it’s back! Our small business Happy Hour live series will return each day of The Tour, bringing a daily dose of positivity and the chance to win fantastic prizes from small businesses in the local areas we are visiting.
