I cannot praise The Best of Bolton enough. Since becoming a member I have received nothing but the best support and without them I don't think my business would be where it is today. Thank you Gaynor Ramsden and David Ramsden and Ellie Brown

The Network lunch at the Bolton School was excellent which I am sure
you will agree and I went on the tour of the school and that was very
good a little insight to what goes on at a prestigious school. Adele
was a brilliant host.
Best of Bolton once again in the spotlight with Networking keep up the good work
I attended the Expo for the 2nd time and I wasn't disappointed, great event, well organised and what a great turn out! Fabulous!

Gaynor and David run a well oiled business that clearly operates on integrity, partnership and promotes an equal footing for skills, services and business exchange/promotion. They deal with businesses and people as diverse as the communities they work in. They are a pleasure to work with. They pro actively seek out ways to help others and for BYPHS this is invaluable. The links fostered as part of the Best of Bolton have given us so much support; it has raised our profile, brought us successful partnerships and fundraising. As a result The Best of Bolton and all its members are helping the homeless. Their commitment to corporate social responsibility is blindingly obvious but also they “get” people. It is refreshing. Well done and thank you.

I can't commend Best of Bolton highly enough.
On a Personal level the support I have been given, first working in the charity sector and now as a consultant, has been exemplar.
The team are always on hand to offer support, advice, encouragement and wisdom.
The events are great opportunities to meet different businesses and the fact that they take place on different members premises gives an insight into the work and working environment of others.
The women in business group has been a source of incredible support, business advice and encouragement and it's fun too. Business happens because it's a group of like minded women who want their peers to be successful.
Thanks to their complementary gifts they make an exceptional team.
Thanks all. Blessed to know you!
Big thanks to Ellie at The Best of Bolton! - I had a couple of questions about our Best Of Bolton feature and Ellie was able to explain all of this to me so that it makes sense! Ellie was also a great help in fixing the color of our logo on the feature! Thanks Ellie, I would happily recommend TBO Bolton to any business, and do!

Once again another great Networking event by the Best of Bolton,
enjoyed by everyone young and the older children !!
Always good to attend these events to meet new people and catch up
with existing members.
I have always been pretty active on social media but, as my business grew, I found that I had less and less time to commit to it. As a member of The Best of Bolton, I was grateful that I had the option of letting Gaynor take the lead and make me more active on there than I have ever been, rather than having to find someone that I didn't know. There are now 2 or 3 posts every day, my audience interaction rate has increased and I am having many more assessments booked through facebook than I have ever had. On top of this, I am also still able to post anything that I deem relevant, at any time, and this keeps the personal edge that I had always had. I thought that I knew everything about social media - how wrong I was! Thanks Gaynor and team, I couldn't do it without you!
I just wanted to take the time out this morning to thank The Best of Bolton for all of their hard work. A lot of work that goes on ‘behind the scenes’ connecting people together that is often unseen and hard for the team to see - but it works!. They have been a pivotal part of my business and I am sure they will be in the future.
I have just had a marketing meeting with David and Gaynor after being in the Bestof for just over a year and with thanks to them I am very pleased with how my business as come on in the last twelve months, Thankyou David and Gaynor and keep up the excellent work!
David and Gaynor are two of the most hard working, professional people I have come across. The support for members and commitment to local businesses is second to none. If you need help with your social media look no further!
I participated in The Best of Bolton Social media training with Gaynor recently. This was very insightful and thought invoking to develop our social media actions. Very professional and worth speaking to Gaynor to organise social media training for yourself!
Reply from The Best Of Bolton: Thanks Stephen, really pleased you found the session helpful.
I attend the ladies networking group every month. Can I just say the help I have had from this group of ladies is tremendous. the group is always very well organised and its a pleasure to attend.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Gaynor, David and Ellie for their amazing support for me personally and for Zac's during my time at the charity. Look forward to working with you even more in the future.
David and Gaynor at The Best of Bolton have provided loads of help and support in developing my business, not only from promoting it through the site, but also the nuts and bolts of running it, particularly with social media, which previously I knew very little about. The networking events they set up have also been a great opportunity to meet with other members. A big THANK YOU to all at The Best of Bolton
Gaynor and David ran a great course yesterday. It was a great day, with lots of really useful and practical information. Having run their business for 5 years, their knowledge is excellent. Thank you guys
I attended a training course run by David and Gaynor yesterday. The course ran for a full day and was brilliantly organised and smoothly run. The content was exactly what I needed and was delivered at the right pace. I have piles of brilliant notes that I now only need to implement!
David, Gaynor, Ellie and Anna are fabulous! They know everything about Bolton and offer fantastic support for local businesses. We attend many events organised by them such as networking, Women in Business, Big Bolton Expo, workshops, marketing clinics, awards events and have always found these events informative and helpful. They really have helped us to build our business and we're very proud to now be multi award winning. Thanks guys!
I joined The Best of Bolton about a month ago and have already received lots of help and additional promotion for my business from Gaynor, David and Ellie. Glad to be part of the BoB family, I would definitely recommend joining up.
The team at TBO Bolton are amazing!
Ellie has been extremely helpful with adding the new review app to our facebook page and website, and is always extremely helpful with my queries - Thanks Guys! :)

Just to let you know how much I enjoyed the best of Bolton presentation on Wednesday afternoon. "Digi dos and Digi don'ts" gave exactly what it said on the tin. The presenters, Chris from Scruffy Monkey, Julie from Julie Lomax and Paul who dealt with video photography were all first class. All 3 provided me with information that will prove to be invaluable and in a simple forthright manner that even I could Understand. Well done. I look forward to the next workshop.

I felt the workshop was very useful as we are currently having our website redone so I gathered a lot of information on how to improve our online presence. The presentations where interesting and was overall a great workshop. Thanks so much for setting this up as part of our membership
