Well I have to take this opportunity to leave a review for David Ruddle who runs the Best Of Eastbourne. You dedicate your time and passion to help the independent businesses take centre stage in all that they do and give them a far reach with a captive audience.
You’re always sensitive and upbeat, willing to discuss new ideas and evolve. It’s rare you meet a professional who is willing to go the extra mile every time and that’s you!
Your drive is really infectious and always pushes me to do more and keep innovating to grow my business and promote myself and services in ways I hadn’t thought of.
David is also very skilled in his marketing techniques and shows you ways to use the best of skills to drive your business forward and engage exsisting and new customers. David also knows the real meaning of networking and making connections which add value to each other for sustainable devoopment and real life opportunities. I don’t know how you find the time and patience for me let alone others so I thank you for all of your support thus far and wish you every success for 2019! You really are a one off and I have no doubt other independents in Eastbourne will back me up when I say we are so lucky to have you!
Reply from David Ruddle: I do love working with you and your business :) Such a great place and more people really should check you out so pleased to be part of your journey.

I had a privilege of meeting David and couldn’t recommend him enough. As soon as I walked through the door David offered me a nice hot drink and some lovely biscuits. He told me about what he does and how he could generate more business for us as a new company. He was easy to understand, very polite and funny. He made me feel at ease and very interested in everything he said. I left his house feeling motivated and excited to work alongside David to promote our new business. Hes got my 100% trust.
Reply from David Ruddle: Thanks Petra, great to have been able to share some insights with you. Good Luck with chasing your goals :)

He's also one of the most generous, friendly and positive people I have met in a long time. Added to all of this, he really knows his marketing, and is passionate about helping his customers in Eastbourne make the very most out of the efforts they put in to their businesses. Sadly, I don't live locally to David, so can't become a customer, but wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone within his catchment. He will bring a breath of fresh air along with a raft of ideas and suggestions!

Just wanted to say that there were some brilliant ideas for kids during the school summer holidays on The Best Of Eastbourne which were not listed anywhere else, unusual things like an animation studio which had Open Days and is a charity, as well as being on our doorstep. Will definitely look here first in future & have told other parents to do the same :)
Reply from David Ruddle: We work hard to make sure event organisers know they can add their events to our website for promotion :) Glad you were able to benefit.

Having moved to Eastbourne a couple of years ago, I found 'thebestofeastbourne' and have been impressed with the way it promotes all that is best in Eastbourne, the many offerings, groups, organizations and services and because it is a great source of information. In addition, also with the professional way it is operated. David has managed to pull together many strands which are charitable as well as commercial and that is no mean feat. That is why 'thebestofeastbourne' gets a 5 star rating from me. Oh, David Ruddell is highly approachable and, as they say, a service is as good as the person who leads it, so if I could he would get a 5 star rating too.
Reply from David Ruddle: So pleased we are a useful source of information to you :)

Fantastic Facebook page admin David Ruddle! Within minutes of me informing David that I was receiving nasty comments from a page member that didn’t even live in the area, David investigated my complaint and took action. Thank you David, you’ve made me feel secure in posting in my community page again.

David is great at making connections between different organisations. I've appreciated his help and support with my community project, the East Sussex Against Scams Partnership, introducing me to businesses who have pledged their help in raising awareness about the impact of scams / fraud upon local residents.
