Let us help you make the most of this inspiring local business community.

Ipswich & Suffolk Small Business Association (ISSBA) was set up as a not-for-profit organisation in the1980s as a way of providing peer-to-peer support for small business owners. Starting and running a business can be a lonely place so connecting with other business owners is an invaluable way to share ideas/experiences and offer mutual support.

ISSBA still maintains the same ethos to this day as our volunteer committee, made up of local business people, focuses on providing valuable support, events and useful information to members backed up by their own understanding of the ups and downs of the business world. 

We run monthly networking events where you will always be guaranteed a friendly and warm welcome. ISSBA also runs the annual Anglia Business Exhibition which will next take place on 10th May 2023 at Trinity Park, Ipswich.

Love Your Image

Penny Morgan Photography

Taking you on a journey to having confidence in front of any camera

After I started as a professional photographer in 2009, ‘Love Your Image’ was born from discovering just how many people hated getting in front of the camera.

Yes, I was once one of those people too!

So a few years in, I created a session of help, particularly for business owners to overcome the dislike and anxiety of getting in front of any camera. 

It’s really essential to make sure you are seen regularly as your true self, for the good of your business – but nerves can do strange things to us! 

No more – you can now learn how to get to grips with this and discover considerable liberation in doing so.
