I've just met with David for the first time from The Best of Eastbourne. He is so easy to talk to and he has given me some great advice concerning my business. I'm looking forward to working with him to achieve my business goals.

I am so glad to have found The Best Of Eastboune.

David is a great business tutor, always on hand for every question.

He always has valuable feedback and advice on my business ideas promotions and much more.

His events are relaxed and well planned bringing many business owners together for educational and social events.

I would highly recommend David to any small business owner who needs a helping hand to manage and or grow their business.

Not to mention his very competitive pricing.

Thank you David

I have been a member since the Best of since 2014, and have very much enjoyed the business support and networking with other Best of Members. David recently came and met with the team to talk about video marketing, which was a fun and educational session. Many thanks David for all your support!

Our press release was sent out this morning about Eastbourne's efforts to reah carbon neutrality by 2030. Within minutes and well before any other agency had responded, David Ruddle had published this article! Congratulations on being the "Best of Eastbourne" and beyond!

Thanks Oliver, your press release is also visible on thebestof East Sussex and it will be in tomorrow's e-newsletter :)
As an Eastbourne based charity thebestofEastbourne has been a really great help. It enables more local people to find us.
It is also a great source for local information, from tradesmen to restaurants and what's going on.

Thank you Michelle, it was great to see your Charity nominated for year long support through 2024 😀 Looking forward to continuing our FREE support to Charities in Eastbourne
Having raised 2 issues about companies you promote I don’t think you care about anything other than taking money off people to promote their business. We received £300 from one company you promote as they damaged our property. When I mentioned this I was threatened by the owner of the company. I recently raised concerns about reviews left by partners of a business and was not taken seriously, apparently it’s ok for people to submit reviews if they are in a relationship with the owner of the business being reviewed. Apparently because I’m in the same industry I’m classed as a competitor and not taken seriously, I’m hardly a competitor when my successful business turns over substantially more than the company I reported.

Hi Mark, thebestof Head Office did receive a query regarding a Google review displayed on a business profile on thebestof Eastbourne. They investigated this and didn't find any evidence to suggest the review didn't comply with the reviews policy. The other review reported was for a business and review that is not featured on thebestof Eastbourne. I'm afraid we aren't aware of what you're referring to about £300 from a company for damaged property or who you say you have mentioned this to in your review. Thank you for your feedback.
David gave me some great insights into my business and is obviously very knowledgable about a lot of businesses, thank you for your guidance! Amanda

We are always happy to help promote local clubs and events in Eastbourne :)
I attended the Best of Eastbourne October meet up and I must say it was completely different from any other networking event I've ever been to. No early start no connecting while trying to.eat your breakfast no pressure to produce a 60 second sales pitch - a very relaxed informal event meeting like minded local business owners at a great venue and all organised for us by Dave Ruddle - I had a great time met some lovely people and have had coffee with a few since. So much nicer to make friends some of which you may do business with.

Once again David has been a great and helped us to understand the power of reviews as well as setting up a process to get more reviews. Nothing is ever to much trouble, and David always responds so quickly to any questions we have. Thank you David and The Best of Eastbourne.

David invited me to an event he hosted last year. Not only was the event incredibly informative and useful but due to a connection made at that event it has lead to us signing our largest ever contract.
Thank you David!

I am so grateful to thebestof Eastbourne for allowing me to list my pop choirs on their website. And what a fabulous website this is too! Listing our weekly events was nice and simple, and David was so helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. What a wonderful site this is!

Love to have local events on my website and choirs are very popular events :)
I was incredibly impressed with the help David offered on the business MOT call. It was really helpful, thorough advice that is easy to digest and implement. In a world that is pretty alien to me - the business world - David helped to provide a road map that is easy to navigate and that makes perfect sense, even to someone like me who has had little to no previous experience with this kind of thing. I feel galvanised, focused, and full of enthusiasm to forge ahead. Thank you David, I can't recommend you highly enough!
