We are a multi-award winning practice!
Starki Architectural has been given a Twitter Boost from Theo Paphitis!
Starki received the business boost from Retail Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis. Last week, Wez Morgan, Starki’s Principal Director, tweeted Theo about Starki and what we do during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his 500,000 Twitter followers. The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 2500 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.
Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo re‐tweeted Wez’s message to his almost 500,000 followers and as a result, starki.co.uk has hundreds more followers and extra enquiries for their architectural services. They are also profiled on the #SBS website that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.
Wez said, “We’ve been in business for less than a year and, during the pandemic, I’ve been working at our new studio at home. It is great to have support from Theo because it’s been tough trying to raise our profile and he’s really recognised our hard work and helped spread the word about what we do.”
Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK. My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish Starki every success.”
Anyone looking for a re‐tweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5 PM and 7.30 PM and include the hashtag #SBS. Six lucky businesses are re‐tweeted every Monday at 8 PM and then invited to enter their profile on the new website, attend the annual #SBS networking event and take advantage of the networking opportunities.
Last week Starki was also awarded the Best Change of Use Architecture Practice in the UK from a shortlist of practices in the global BUILD Architecture Awards 2020. BUILD has run a highly anticipated Architecture Award for six consecutive years with an ambition to recognise and reward the incredible works conducted by the world’s most innovative, imaginative and dedicated designers and architects.
