I was invited to go along to the Ashford International Hotel yesterday, by Jo James of the Invicta Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber held a business to business exhibition at the hotel and – perversely given the recession – all 120 stall spaces were fully booked, with a waiting list of exhibitors who for space reasons were unable to get a pitch.
I was pleased that KCC had a stand for both its Kent Foundation for young people, and my “Backing Kent Business” campaign.
And after lunch, I was invited to speak and answer questions on the campaign and how KCC intended to be more business friendly.
Backing Kent Business can only succeed by working together across sectors. I feel fortunate to number the Invicta Chamber of Commerce among our partners in this.
