Riverside wins Theo Paphitis SBS Award

Jonathan Oldfield recycling advice

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been chosen as a Theo Paphitis SBS winner!

The well-known former Dragon runs a ‘Small Business Sunday’ competition on his Twitter page every Sunday evening. Businesses throughout the UK tweet Theo with a short ‘pitch’ about their business with the hashtag #SBS. He then chooses his favourite six to retweet on Monday evening.

We used our 140 characters wisely to tell Theo about how we help our clients to bale and re-sell their unwanted waste, and we were lucky enough to be chosen as a winner.

As an SBS winner, Riverside will be invited to yearly networking events, where we’ll have the opportunity to meet Theo himself and other winners, and take part in question panels.

In the past few days since our SBS win, we’ve seen a significant increase in traffic to our website, as well as Twitter follows and mentions. There have even been a few email and telephone enquiries about our baling machines, as a result of winning Theo’s approval.

We think it’s quite the honour that such an experienced entrepreneur would showcase us to his 500,000 followers! To find out more about SBS, please visit their website.
