Vote for Dotty Fish in the Amazon UK Small Business Awards
There’s excitement here at Tamebay Towers as one of our chums is a finalist in the Amazon UK Small Business Awards 2019 and we’d like to invite you to vote for them. Helen Chapman of Dotty Fish didn’t even know she had entered the awards as Ruth, head of marketing at Dotty Fish, did a secret entry and now they’re through to the finals!
“Small businesses like Dotty Fish are the backbone of Amazon’s drive for offering customers great value, selection and convenience. These awards give us the opportunity to recognise and showcase some of the most impressive small businesses in the UK, and help others learn from their successes, and we are thrilled to be able to offer the winners a trip to our global head office in Seattle.”
– Simon Donegan, Head of UK Seller Services, Amazon
Based in Farnborough, Dotty Fish creates beautiful shoes for little ones that helps them look good while encouraging the development of their feet. The company has been shortlisted for the Exporting Small Business of the Year Award. Helen has been a massive supporter of Tamebay over the years and now we’d like to return the favour and encourage you to vote for her in the Exporting Small Business of the Year category. It’ll only take seconds and you’ll be entered into a draw to win one of a hundred Amazon UK gift cards worth £100 each.
“We’re so excited to be nominated for an Amazon Small Business Award. We are a small team who have worked together for a number of years and it means the world to us.
Knowing that of all small businesses Amazon has selected us is a win in itself. Having them recognise our performance has been so encouraging. As a new mum setting up a business 13 years ago, I would never have dreamed this is where it would lead to. It is a real boost to Dotty Fish, and we are so excited about the opportunity and what the future has to offer.”
– Helen Chapman, Managing Director, Dotty Fish
