Facebook Success Story – Press Release

The Last Hurdle, a small Towcester company, is chosen as a Facebook Success Story and Director Jules White was a panelist for the London Facebook Bootcamp

Towcester, Northamptonshire, UK 5 February 2015 – A small business in a small English market town attracted a global spotlight from one of the world’s biggest companies, Facebook. The Last Hurdle, a Towcester marketing firm that offers complete business development services, has been chosen to be a Facebook Success Story to be featured on www.facebook.com/business. Facebook sent a camera crew to their offices to film how the company has used Facebook to build and grow the business.

The Last Hurdle’s founder, Jules White, was also selected to be a panelist at Facebook’s first Bootcamp in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa). She joined three other panelists in London on January 26, 2015, as well as Facebook staff, to talk to around 800 SMEs about how to use Facebook to find clients, convert leads and win sales.

“We are very honoured to be chosen by Facebook as a featured Facebook Success Story. We are much smaller than most of the other success stories currently featured on the platform. Aside from making a video of our company and how we use Facebook to develop our business, the panel discussion was very exciting and informative. I was thrilled to see the innovative ideas and entrepreneurial minds at work.” – Jules White, Founder, The Last Hurdle

“We have been working with The Last Hurdle™ for 3 years. One of the main reasons for out-sourcing to Jules and her team was to draw on her experience as a Business Development Specialist. It’s so easy to work in the business but this can be counter–productive as business development gets neglected. From the word go Jules has been a crucial part to our business. We have gone from a couple of hundred clients to well over 600 and we are now the largest Franchise in the UK.” – Ann Brebner, Director, Time for You Northants (North) Ltd
