Former BBC Dragon and business magnate Theo Paphitis has given us big online exposure.
Bays Consulting, received a retweet from the famous retail entrepreneur, after we were named as one of six winners of the Theo Paphitis’ Small Business Sunday contest and were retweeted to Theo’s half a million strong Twitter following.
The weekly initiative was set up by Mr Paphitis in 2010 to support small UK businesses. Our founder, Sophie said “I’m absolutely delighted to receive this support from Theo and it’s given Bays Consulting a real boost. I’m looking forward to meeting Theo – and other Small Business Sunday winners – at his annual networking event, as well as engaging with other winners in the exclusive weekly Twitter #SBSWinnersHour.”
As a result of our win, we’ve seen our Twitter account have a huge rise in followers and we’ve been fortunate enough to receive dozens of congratulatory messages from other small business owners across the country.
Theo added: “I admire people who have passion and energy. If you cannot bore your friends to death about your own small business then something is seriously wrong.”
“I know I have been lucky in business and I am keen now to spread goodwill to others, of course not forgetting that very often, you make your own luck by making use of every opportunity.”
