Bradley's Bakery were very excited at winning the prestigious #WOW badge on Wednesday 3 September 2014.
Around two years ago Jacqueline Gold, Chief Executive of Ann Summers launched a campaign to support women in business called Women On Wednesday, or #WOW, which takes place every Wednesday through Jacqueline’s twitter page. Each week Jacqueline encourages female business owners to tweet her using the #WOW hash tag, along with their business name and a short overview of what they do. Jacqueline then picks her three top entries for that week and re-tweets them to her followers (currently over 44,000).
Jacqueline looks for quality products, well designed websites and entrepreneurs who appear to have a good business sense, also who have thought about what the consumer wants and how to deliver it.
