Well what can anyone really say about this other than wow! A great promotor of Eastbournes community and business'. I am super proud to have access to something like this as it is integral and community based. David is a professional, intelligent and likable guy that has done so much for us (Age Concern Eastbourne). Well done and long may it continue.

I found today's working meeting very useful and really appreciated David's time and the materials that David handed out. I got some great tips as I'm just starting up my own business. David is a very personable, enthusiastic, and helpful person. Thank you again and I look forward to the next working lunch.

I have found thebestof Eastbourne to be such a great asset to the people of Eastbourne, the way the companies are supported and promoted and how local charities are also included in that promotion and support, thebestof Eastbourne shows not only the people of Eastbourne but also visitors what a great town Eastbourne is,
David is always so helpful with information and assistance.
It highlights events throughout the town giving an honest insight into what is happening.

Yet again David has been hard at work helping the local community.
By sending a few photos and a small amount of text, he made a fantastic little video of Memory Lane Eastbourne. A great idea to promote our charity. Thank you again David. x

A big thank you to David for creating a wonderful little promo video for our charity, for free. It is lovely, professional, on brand and it captures the essence of Chaseley. The Best of Eastbourne are brilliant advocates for the town and the businesses, charities and people within it. They offer a wonderful resource, training and help to add value and trust in all things local. I also love the weekly update we subscribe to, along with their #CharityOfTheDay promotion. Thanks for helping keep things local David.

Today I received my first email from thebestof and felt compelled to tell them immediately how good it was.
Being new to Eastbourne any assistance on local events etc are welcome and this just fits the bill.

It is always such a pleasure to hear back from our subscribers. Delighted you have enjoyed the news we had to share :)
David shows great commitment to supporting local businesses. The ‘Working Lunch’ talking point and networking event was a good opportunity to share experiences with other businesses.

I thought David's energy and enthusiasm for the networking event was brilliant. I think the networking event was held for the right amount of time and I really liked the break out sessions, thought these were really insightful and useful. I was late to the event however it might have been nice to move members around the tables so that everyone gets the opportunity to chat to one another. I know that this time was given at the end to network, however I had to leave to do the school run. I thought the venue was good and the event could hold alot more people which is encouraging. Hope to attend in the future.

Thanks so much, it was lovely to have you along. I was reluctant to have members swapping seats etc with this being our first event back. In time I aim to make it easier for attendees to get 1-2-1 time with others of their chosing.
Just back from my first real (in person) networking event with David Ruddle. David opened a great discussion about the power of reviews, how we can get them, respond to them and indeed use them! After introductions, we worked in small groups. David presented Designer Travel with her Spirit of Eastbourne award too. A nice introduction to getting back to normal from our life of virtual meetings! Thanks David, great job!

Another great event today with David at the helm. An small (ergo covid safe) group that allowed us to network, learn and 'do'. It's always good to meet new businesses, find out where the serendipity is and to discuss things through. David allows that to happen in an open yet safe environment. It's great to be back to face to face, small but beautiful meetings!

I want to thank David for his support and perseverance with me, in creating a blog, adding events.
I learnt so much when we met the other day, and he helped explain, how I can make the my stories more news worthy.
Thank you again, and it's a pleasure to support you like you are me

David Ruddle from thebestofEastbourne is passionate about helping local businesses to succeed. He thinks laterally, and suggests new marketing strategies, opportunities, and other potential income streams. As I'm trying to help RemCon UAV (aerial photography) to get off the ground (excuse the pun!), David's thoughts have been invaluable.
