Valley’s Best 2022
We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who voted, all of our sponsors, all of the Top 3’s that came out & congratulations to all of the winners. You can find the full list of winners here.
It was a fantastic way to spend a fall evening, casually socializing with friends and establishing new connections in the business community.
We can’t wait to get planning for future events!

As most of you know, we just hosted our 2022 Valley’s Best awards at Millstone Harvest Brewhouse. It was a beautiful venue, I hope those of you who hadn’t been, found a lovely new place to bring your pups.
The Food trucks, TJ’s Burgers and Homemade Fries & The Caribbean Pot provided delicious food. Guy Paul Thibault was there with great tunes and Darrin & Shane from Rewind 89.3 were as entertaining as usual. Despite a miscommunication about what “dressing up” meant on Darrin’s part, everyting went smoothly.
Strategic Social Media Marketing for Small Businesses & Entrepreneurs
On October 4th we hosted a Social Media Strategy Workshop for Small Businesses & Entrepreneurs at the Valley Business Hub in collaboration with Julie Ogilvie, who was also Top 3 in Best Marketing Business for Valley’s Best this year.
This workshop was intended to help business owners and employees reduce stress and increase efficiency in their social media marketing role. How to use social media as a strategic tool, and thoughtfully identify your audience, right in class with the help of your peers and Julie!
The workshop was a hands-on deep dive with a small class size to allow for time to engage and apply what was being taught, leaving with a workbook to reference for future projects.
By implementing a couple lessons we have seen an increase of profile visits across all channels already. The goal for us is to increase engagement with existing followers and it appears we are doing just that!
