Facebook teams up with FSB to help small business owners

  • 21 Jun 2019

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and Facebook has held the latest in a series of UK-wide ‘Boost Your Business’ events at the Norwich Research Park.

The experts from Facebook, Melissa Ghossoub and Matthew Evans, advised those small businesses in attendance on how to maximise their returns from activity on Facebook and Instagram.


Businesses from across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridge attended the FSB-organised event and left with great ideas on how to boost their businesses through online activities.

The event was hosted by Mike Drain, FSB National Councillor for the East of England. 
Penny Morgan, FSB Area Lead in East Anglia, said: “This was a very popular and useful event.  It’s great for us to work in partnership with Facebook to help small businesses harness the power of social media and it was fantastic to be able to welcome Facebook staff to Norfolk.”

FSB research found that 26% of small business owners in the UK lack confidence in digital skills and the partnership with Facebook aims to help more small businesses really grasp the opportunities available to them through social media.
