The Best of Eastbourne - and David specifically - are a great boost to your digital presence in Eastbourne. I love the fact potential customers can check out my reviews and it has helped my visibility locally. Highly recommend The Best of Eastbourne to boost your online presence.

It has been a pleasure to help you for so many years now.
Thank you to David Ruddle and Best of Eastbourne for doing the excellent video for Purple Tuesday 2 November 2021. So great the business community and the voluntary sector came together with the support of BID, Best of, the council and our host the Beacon centre to make the event a success!

Thanks Jason, it is great to have you on board.
David was an approachable, friendly and personable host for the best of Eastbourne event. He made us all feel welcome and made the two hours flow smoothly.

For my first in person networking event for sometime it was enjoyed and I'd happily return again.

If you're local and want to meet some new people who also run their own businesses then David is the man about town to help you do just that!

2 hours of actual face-to-face business networking, with real people, what a salve for the soul. I’m all for quality over quantity and this select gathering proved just that.

✅ Great idea sharing about how to market our businesses

✅ genuine connections with fellow solopreneurs

✅ an invite to be guest speaker at another networking group

✅ fab convos about how I help change people’s lives, and requests to share these amazing success stories (noted!)

All this, thanks to David Ruddle who is still THE most prolific networker, people connector, and marketeer I know. And a jolly good bloke, to boot.

Well worth the train ticket over!

I love David’s weekly business Tuesday Top Tips. Especially catchy subject lines that make me want to open the emails and read more. Short but to the point and because they come weekly it keeps the momentum in place to check if what I’m doing is right ( or wrong or I’m not doing it at all) and gives me a chance to act if needed.
Keep them coming David!

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.

Thank you so much to Best of and David Ruddle personally for all his help with local charities and community groups, as well as the excellent support for local business.

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.
