Marketing Manager Recognised As A Champion

Poppy Design Studio Marketing Manager Simon Cox has been recognised as an FSB Policy Champion for 2020 for his hard work in engaging with local authorities and helping to support local businesses.

Simon, who heads up the Marketing at Poppy Design Studio, was recognised at the National Awards event held online where over 200 volunteers from around the UK were invited to attend to hear from FSB National Chairman Mike Cherry OBE and Paul Scully MP, Minister for Small Business and celebrate with other volunteers from around the UK.

His work includes regularly updating local businesses on key information from the Federation of Small Businesses, regular updates on his social media and ensuring the supportive ethics and values of both Poppy Design Studio and the local business networks are adhered to of being supportive to local people.

Simon said “During the pandemic, it was clear that local businesses needed to be kept up to date and we were proud to continue the meetings on line as our way of engaging with our local community and ensuring our clients and other local businesses were kept up to date and, more importantly, able to access support from other businesses.

Head Designer and Director Marie Baker said “We are a business who care about the community and ensuring others are helped where possible. We are both proud members of the Federation of Small Businesses and recognise the hard work the FSB has done for businesses especially during the last twelve months.”

“Having formed the Kettering Business Network in 2015, the year that Poppy Design Studio was formed, we’ve grown as a business alongside the business network and we are proud of all the effort and time invested in our community to help others along the way.”

Also recognised from Northamptonshire were Clare Elsby from Elsby & Co and Sally Wood from Sally Wood Consultancy.
