Hull web design firm to be ambassadors for nationwide entrepreneurs movement

28th Jun

A Hull-based web design company has been selected to be part of a nationwide roll-out of events designed to give the UK economy a major boost as it recovers from the pandemic.

Nic and Sarah Johnson, who run it’seeze websites, will be the local ambassadors of Entrepreneurs Circle, which has thousands of members across the UK.

Entrepreneurs Circle is led by Nigel Botterill, a Sunday Times best-selling author and serial entrepreneur. It exists to deliver support, advice and inspiration to business owners across the UK.

Now, with Nic and Sarah’s help, that message will be delivered on a local level through regular meetings, exploring the best methods of modern marketing and how to run a profitable business, or as the EC simply calls it, “getting and keeping customers”.

Nic said: “I am really excited to be a part of this roll-out because we’re on a mission to make a difference and to share advice, ideas and the odd bit of inspiration. All of the local ambassadors are business owners and we will be discussing tried and trusted methods that we know work.

‘I’m proud to be part of this movement and I’m really looking forward to running our events and meeting business owners like me who want to make a difference and play their part in kick-starting the economy on both the local and national level.’

The first event run by Nic and Sarah will be held at the Potting Shed, Beverley, on Thursday, July 8, from 6pm to 7.30pm.

Nigel Botterill, who has created nine million-pound businesses, said: “The take-up of our local meeting scheme has been nothing short of sensational and just goes to show that there is an energy out there among the UK’s entrepreneurs to stand up and make a difference.

“This network will deliver support, advice and inspiration to local business owners from local business owners who are passionate about leading the UK out of the pandemic to bigger and brighter futures. There’s nothing else like it and we’re very proud of them all.

“We’ve been planning this for a long time but of course wider events had curtailed our launch. However, as lockdown lifts, now is the time to get out there, to shake things up a bit and get people excited about running a business again.

“We’ve all been through incredible challenges in the last 18 months but we’re nearing the end of the tunnel now. The energy and enthusiasm of the local ambassadors has been incredible and I am hugely excited to be working with them.”
