A weekly podcast celebrating and supporting small business owners and creative entrepreneurs.

I also invite industry experts to share their valuable knowledge and expertise with the Small and Mighty Conversation listeners. Previous guests include Holly Tucker of Not On The High Street and Holly & Co, Richard Huntington of Saatchi & Saatchi and Lucy Ward of Trouva.
