Who is Holly?

Holly Tucker founded Notonthehighstreet in 2006 based on a belief that UK creative small business, those bringing colour to everyday grey, deserved a platform that reached beyond the local town hall walls. Twelve years on, Notonthehighstreet now supports over 5000 small businesses and has pumped £600 million into the UK economy!

In 2017 Holly founded Holly & Co after realising small creative businesses needed a place to gather, to be inspired and gain sage business advice, but in an imaginative and creative way. Awarded her MBE for services to small business in 2012 and named UK  Ambassador to Small Creative Businesses in 2015, Holly’s lifetime mission is to advise and inspire in equal measure. It is with this ethos that the Congregation of Inspiration has been brought to life.

For too long, business has been portrayed as grey and impenetrable – but I think it’s time this myth was dispelled.  I want to pass on all the lessons and insights I’ve gathered over 15 years of building companies.  But far from the drab and sterile world of business conferences, The Congregation of Inspiration will fuse creativity, inspiration and advice in one.  At every moment of the day I want to surprise you, delight you and ask you to look at the world with a new perspective.

I passionately believe that small businesses are the lifeblood of the UK economy and the future.  So, whether you run a small business and want to future proof your vision, or you’re on ‘day one’ of the journey – The Congregation of Inspiration is for you.
