Kirsty Waller, VP Marketing, Sage UK & Ireland said: "We are right by the side of the dreamers and small business owners as they continue to Boss It despite one of the most challenging years in our country’s history.
Anyone can start a business, whether it be a side-hustle, a kitchen table start-up or an opportunity to give back – although we’ve seen that the common thread that exists within them all is an unrelenting fire and gritty determination to succeed. This campaign is a great way for us to put these determined heroes in the spotlight as they continue to grapple with the challenges of 2021.”
