It was a sheer privilege and honour to have been asked as a Member of BIRA (British Independent Retailers Association) to represent them in the Ipswich area to take part in an interview with BBC Look East on Tuesday 22nd May 2018.
The interview was headed up by Kevin Burch who made me feel so relaxed and confident as he filmed and we chatted at the Boutique. This was televised later that evening to coincide with a short business feature, which focused on Ipswich and its plans for future development and investments, part of the Ipswich Vision initiative. This was most certainly a break from the norm’, as I turned my hand from Business Owner to being a local representative (for a day) and at the same time gained maximum exposure – amongst the programme’s half a million viewers.
Having never been on TV this was a prime opportunity for me personally and the business alike – the feedback has been immense, to say the least! I really enjoyed the experience of being a spokesperson for the local community. A sincere thanks to everyone who gave feedback and support.
Being in the limelight was an ideal birthday gift for us at Déjà Vu, as we reached six years of trading on Saturday 26th May!
