Rob Hirst-Hermans, Associate Creative Director of Forsman & Bodenfors, said in a statement: “The #MakeSmallBig Holiday Market underscores Goldman Sachs' commitment and belief in the power of small businesses, especially during the global pandemic that is adversely affecting many this company has had an impact. According to Goldman Sachs' latest Sinking Lifeboats survey, 59% of small business owners said sales were negatively impacted by rising Covid-19 infection rates this fall. We pride ourselves on creating a campaign to help these companies at the end of an incredibly challenging year. "
