I have just started up a drone business, RemCon UAV. David Ruddle from thebestofeastbourne has been very helpful, giving me plenty of ideas and advice about how I can grow my online presence.

What would you invest to pick the brain of one of Eastbourne's sharpest marketing minds? Because that's what you're getting with the price of your BestofEastbourne listing. David doesn't just know his stuff - he's one of the few people who walks the walk. Follow him, listen to his advice and you will get more customers. There's no question about it.

David works exceedingly hard to support local businesses. His networking events helped me link with other local business owners during the pandemic. It was nice to know others had made the same slips as me during the process of transferring all interactions to online. David has a wealth of knowledge and introduces people to each in a welcoming friendly manner.
Reply from David Ruddle: Glad to be of assistance :)

sometimes I feel sorry for David and the amount of times I've randomly pestered him... but he seriously is the first person I go to if I need any information of contacts or networking. Not only does he have a vast networking circle, he is always happy and keen to help. I have known him for (???) years and will continue to do so for the excellent advice he gives. If he doesn't know, he'll know a guy😊 Just brilliant. Thank you for all your hard work.
