Changes to Small is Beautiful 2016


We have some news about Small is Beautiful 2016.

As you may have noticed, we have been a little quiet on our channels for a few days. This is because we've been working out a little pivot in our Small is Beautiful conference plans.

While many microbusiness owners have already signed up for the conference, we've also had a lot of feedback from people who have wanted to attend but not able to due to pricing, timing, travel, and so on. This was a big portion of our intended audience, so we thought we might have to cancel. It was a tough decision. But our funders, team and ticket holders said we should really try to find a solution – so we have.

So what's happening? We have condensed our speakers into one intense, content-dense day on 15th June. This means the conference can still go ahead, and you'll still get 90% of the value and content that we initially planned.

Tickets are available now from the unbelievably good value of £79.

So now you have no excuse! Do you want insight, intelligence and ideas about how to make money meaningfully as artists, creatives, freelancers and microenterprises?

Of course you do! Mark your diary for 15th June, invest a tiny little bit of your well-earned monies, and join us for a mega day of microbusiness love, laughter and learning.

Book now – and check out the updated programme below.
