Approval from Dragon Theo Paphitis
Dragon’s Den Star presents Award
Stephanie Wallis owner of Safe & Sound Event Childcare (@SafeSoundEvents) tweeted Dragon’s Den star @TheoPaphitis about her business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners of 2017 to gain a retweet by the man himself. Theo tweeted his half-a-million Twitter followers with a mention of Stephanie’s business. The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has 1700 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.
Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo re‐tweeted Stephanie’s message to his almost 500,000 followers and as a result, www.safeandsoundevents.com has increased their followers and extra enquiries for their childcare events business. They are also profiled on the #SBS website (www.theopaphitissbs.com) that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.
“It’s fantastic to have the support from Theo to help raise our profile”
