“The Rural Business Awards have been fantastic for our company. Not only were we lucky enough to win an award, the event itself was amazing. I attend lots of networking events, but nothing compared to the evening at this awards ceremony which was great fun and a celebration of rural businesses. We met some fantastic people and as it happened scheduled two separate meetings with people on our table a few weeks after the ceremony, both now potential clients for our company.
 
I commend all those at The Rural Business Awards for their efforts in supporting rural based businesses like ours.”
Harry O'Connor, Director of Voodoochilli Design

“Part of the application process was to write a business plan. I didn’t win my category but I did end up with a useful set of achievable goals to grow my illustration business.”
Rachel Hudson, Rachel Hudson Illustration

Finalist in the 2018/19 South East Rural Business Awards, Best Rural Creative or Media Business

“It’s been such a fantastic opportunity to be a part of the awards and I have learnt a lot and really enjoyed the entire experience. It’s been a really valuable validation of our efforts as a business. Winning the award made the team feel just that little bit special interestingly in a way that me standing in front of them saying your amazing and fantastic never could!
 
The support I have experienced as a person who was very inexperienced with talking to the press and media has been invaluable and thank you once again Claire for saving that first ever interview and pointing out in a very kind way how to get my words out and deliver a coherent message.
 
I’m excited for the next step for my business and I have a sneaky suspicion I might need to pick the phone up to the RBA team again for a bit of support and it’s just lovely knowing that they will be there to give it.
 
Huge thank you to the RBA team.”
Stephanie Pybus, Director of Mini Explorers Nursery
