Its great put faces to Tweeps and to meet local business people you might not bump into otherwise. The tweetups are always really friendly and relaxed, and I've picked up great tips from others as well as passing on my own. Wish I could get to more tweetups, I've missed several in a row because of meetings or being away. Hoping to be at the next.

I attended the second EBtweetup session back in August last year, and thanks to David I started to use Twitter after. And 2 weeks ago I was back after 8 months.Why? Because I started a new business as an associate to APS Legal & Associates, a company providing Professional Estate Planning and Will writing and I wanted to let the local businesses and community know what I'm doing now and to see what and how they are doing as well. Is was a great opportunity for me to meet new people and meet again with some others after a few good months. Warm, pleasant atmosphere hosted by David. I'll definitely attend the next EBtweetup !

I wasn't sure what to expect from the #ebtweetup when I first attended one last year. Although my business is based locally I don't have many local customers so was concerned I wouldn't really 'fit' in. But as soon as I walked through the door and was greeted in his inimitable friendly style by David Ruddle I knew that this was a great place to meet people, not just putting a face to a business but a chance to chat with local people interested in local life. The latest meeting was an evening do providing a chance to join in for some of those who couldn't attend during the day. There was a mix of familiar faces as well as new, at a warm and inviting venue. Whether making friends or contacts or both, the #ebtweetup is an event to look forward to.

David is certainly delivering on his promise to support his best of eastbourne customers. He has recommended me, invited me to speak at his events, introduced me to people at networking events, retweeted my tweets and passed on useful information in areas he knows I am researching... and more. He is very well networked, a great person to know. Thank you!

David is a great advocate of the best of Eastbourne and a tireless and cheerful advocate of not only our business but also other local businesses. His enthusiasm for business is infectious and I sincerely hope that more local businesses get the bug so we can showcase what a great place, Eastbourne is to do business!

I met David a couple of years ago at a local Chamber of Commerce meeting and was immediately impressed by his enthusiasm, drive and commitment. We have, since then. worked together on a regular basis and it is now great to see all those valuable skills and attributes targeted into the Best of Eastbourne. With David at the helm the Best of Eastbourne can only go from strength to strength.

David Ruddle represents what's best about Eastbourne's "Can Do" culture. The regular Tweetups he organises aren't just great networking events but also opportunities to learn and stimulate new ideas. A tireless champion for the town and the quality local businesses. I don't know where he gets his time and energy from but they both seem limitless!

We think David is a superstar, he has really brought the Best of Eastbourne to life. His knowledge of the town is second to none, many times have i asked him "do you know anybody that ?? " and he instantly comes up with a brilliant local business. For a small business like ours he is brilliant to have an association with. Thank you David for all your help :-)

Wow what can I say about David. One of the most hard working people I think I have met. He is an excellent networker on behalf of the members of The Best Of Eastbourne and Buy Local. He seems to know EVERYONE and can quickly think of a provider for any need. Its not just David that makes The Best Of Eastbourne work though. The testimonials are a great way for customers to feedback, the website is neat, tidy and easy to navigate and the community spirit generated by the members is great.

As a relatively new business, we've been trying out a range of different networking and promotional opportunities around Eastbourne. I liked the concept of thebestof, and having David behind it is a massive bonus! David has an unquenchable enthusiasm and a passion for profitable business that directly benefits his members. I recently attended my first members event and made really helpful contacts - one that could lead possibly the most significant piece of work yet. So far, thebestof Eastbourne has been the most effective networking group I've joined!

I searched the Web and Twitter for some personal investment advice I required but drew a blank. After spotting David Ruddle on Twitter and the Best of Eastbourne, I thought he might be able to help. I emailed David and received an almost immediate response. After a brief email exchange David assessed my needs and provided a contact with a local agency which he knew was reliable. The contact proved an excellent recommendation and David's judgement was absolutely spot on. As a complete bonus David mentioned he had another contact who provided a service in my own Industry. Again David's assessment of fit was perfectly correct and this has the potential of multi million pound business. I can thoroughly recommend David Ruddle as a Business to Business contact specialist who has an impressive networking portfolio.

I contacted David by email very late one evening for help with 'technical things', and was amazed when he replied instantly! Ever since then, I have realised that he not only knows everything there is to know about Eastbourne, but that he also very genuinly wants to help and support our charity to become as well established in Eastbourne as he is - no matter what time of day it is! Dave's passion and enthusiam is inspirational and above everything, he is a really nice guy. I am really looking forward to continuing to work with David and supporting him to make sure that Eastbourne really is 'The Best of all Best ofs'. And, he is one amazing tweeter....!

It’s been a refreshing experience working with someone who really cares about the companies or organisations he’s helping to promote, providing links within the business community and actively promoting all that is great about our town. We look forward to working with David. Marty Waite, Marketing Assistant, Humphrey & Co
