Great service. David went the extra mile to ensure that our slightly unusual pattern of meeting dates was accurately reflected on the website. He was also very proactive in finding an appropriate image to go with our post. Top marks and highly recommended.

On behalf of the Children’s Respite Trust we are very grateful to David for his support with his Charity campaign. Being able to post details of our events and fundraising activities on the website is also a great resource to us.
Thank you 😊

Very straight forward and efficient process!

We have been using David for over 6 years now, helping with our marketing and getting noticed in Eastbourne. Since then he's given countless amounts of advice and help with various social media platforms that I wasn't confident on, encouraging blog posts, SEO and the most impact is reviews, since working with David our team has managed to be review-focused going from a couple of reviews when the business was started to now getting regular reviews. Needless to say, this has had a huge impact on our business getting more business. From going to his master classes learning about SEO, how to write posts, what to write in a blog etc he has helped me gain 1st page Google spots for various services we supply all organically, most recently with EV, this was massive for me so thank you. Lastly during COVID lockdown when no one knew what was happening or if your business was going to survive he was there promoting, liking, commenting and sharing business posts left, right and centre. Highly recommend and we will continue to use.

I attended yesterday's Business Boost event and really enjoyed the opportunity to meet other local business owners as well as learn some great tips about promotion and maintenance of business systems etc.
It's great to be able to do these events in person again, I'll definitely go again!

Attended my first TheBestOf event this week and I highly recommend! David phoned after I registered my entry to introduce himself and explain how he runs the events to ensure you get the most out of it. Great relaxed atmosphere and made to feel very welcome by everyone. Looking forward to attending more!

Always interesting and useful to attend David's Business Meet Up events. Today was really busy. Many new people (welcome to them), lots of inspiration and, even more, lots of follow up. If you're not a member already, you should be asking yourself why not? Don't give it too much thought, though , because, to be honest, it's a no brainer! thanks again, David!

David provided some training on how to use the Best of Eastbourne website and Facebook groups for our charity, Children with Cancer Fund, and it was helpful, insightful and will benefit our charity greatly. He tailored the session to our specific needs and was very happy to answer questions- a very enjoyable session and David was very friendly!

Everyone present benefitted from today’s Best of Eastbourne networking session. David enabled us all to discuss marketing and development ideas which are affecting us all. By the time we left we all had a least one new development point to focus on. Thanks David and keep up your excellent work

had a few issues with my ad. so I sent an email to David Ruddle asking hi about them and he sent back a very considerate and comprehensive answer - not some generalized blah about FAQs, but specific to my problem. That was excellent! More than that: the fact that I made contact with a human and not an algorithm was impressive; the speed of reply also, and the fact that it was New Year's eve... Amazing!!

So pleased I was able to help you get everything set up to share your events and news via thebestof Eastbourne :)
I found yesterday’s Business Boost meeting at the Cumberland so invigorating. Everyone was so full of enthusiasm and offered so many . It was also delightful to meet people face to face and bounce ideas off each other.
The focus of the meeting was to plan for 2022 and now have so many new ideas to think about.
Thank you David for organising and facilitating it.
