Letterworks has been in business in Reading for 26 years and they don't just print on paper but on USB sticks, pens, magnets and many other stationery items. Thanks for the free samples, Viv!

Michael Frank
Michael started Sign-a-Rama Reading from nothing two years ago offering all types oif signage from shop fronts to vehicle graphics and roller banners. The company is doing very well but for Michael, it's not just about the money - he describes the signage business as "a very rewarding and satisfying job" and signed off (geddit) with the memorable words: "A business with no sign is a sign of no business".

Robby Elson
Perfect Fit Personal Training
Robby told us about a client who came to him weighing 17 stone with the ambition of running a 100k "ultramarathon". The client achieved his ambition and Robby ended up running alongside him. "Needless to say," he concluded. "He's no longer 17 stone".

Andrew Milverton

Andrew is an insurance broker based in Hare Hatch, specialising in commercial insurance. He gave a great example of how he'd recently helped a computer software company to save money by replacing their £4,500-a-year insurance premium with one that cost only £1,600 and actually gave the company better cover than before.
