Letterkenny-based interior designer Anne Tuohy has won a prestigious award from Theo Paphitis, one of the UK’s most high profile businessmen.
Anne Tuohy, aka Room Junkie, is the only Irish interior designer to be personally chosen by former UK Dragon investor Theo Paphitis as a winner of his #SBS business awards.
Anne is a nationally acclaimed designer, a previous winner of RTE’s Showhouse and interiors columnist with DonegalWoman.ie.
Her latest ‘Small Business Sunday’ award from Theo Paphitis is a pivotal boost for her business online.
Anne travelled to Birmingham to meet Theo at a special #SBS winner’s event, where he presented her with her award and shared lots of inspiration.
Entrepreneur Theo is best known for appearing on Dragons Den on BBC Two. He is also a mentor and investor to many other businesses acquainted via the UK Dragon’s Den.
Theo rewards small businesses that tweet him @TheoPaphitis and describe their businesses in one tweet including the all-important hashtag #SBS.
He then personally reviews and chooses his favourite six, who are re-tweeted by him. As he has nearly half a million Twitter followers, this provides a massive boost to the chosen businesses.
The benefits range from increased Twitter followers, to positive media publicity, and crucially for many, an increased public profile.
The lucky winners are also invited to Theo’s #SBS event where they get to spend the day with the investor and many other hugely successful entrepreneurs. They are also presented with their #SBS winners award, and are enrolled in the #SBS Community, with a personal profile on the SBS website.
On the recognition, Anne Tuohy said: “Room Junkie is an interior design practice which specialises in the full design of newbuild and renovation projects. Naturally, I am absolutely thrilled to catch the eye of Theo Paphitis, and to be the only Irish Interior Designer to be chosen by him as an #SBS winner.”
