Your business highlights

#SageBusinessHighlightsWe recently asked the British business community to share their Sage Business Highlights, in order to celebrate the results of the Sage Business Index, which showed that, within the UK, confidence in the economy has gone up!

To give two people even more reason to celebrate, we are giving a Christmas hamper to two randomly selected entrants. In this case, the wonderful Shea Goodness, who were celebrating the launch of their new range of body moisturisers, and our very own Sage Business Expert, Joanne Dewberry, marking the publication of her ‘Crafting a Successful Small Business’ book.

However there were also many other brilliant entries, celebrating some inspiring, unusual and generally wonderful highlights of their year. You can see all the posts made in our Facebook gallery.

Sage Business Highlights heatmapThe most generally delightful post was from Match Pint, who found the nearest pub showing the football for 150,000 people! We also had Blue Eyed Sun saying that his business highlight of the year was becoming a Sage Business Expert!

But the most exciting part of this celebration in our opinion is where the posts came from! As you can see the heatmap, the two main areas that are feeling positive about their business year are focused in Newcastle and London. We are pleased to also see how the good attitude can be found in other areas, spreading from Cornwall, to Edinburgh.

So thank you to everyone who participated, and congratulations to Joanne Dewberry and  Shea Goodness for winning!
