Networking event to encourage women to ‘make it your business’

Co-founder of Pickering - Polly Taylor

‘Make it Your Business’ (MIYB) runs seminars across the country, offering aspiring local businesswomen information and opportunities to network with established female entrepreneurs as well as building relationships with their peers in the area.

The keynote speaker for this free event, which is to take place at the Finance Hub in The Pantiles will be Jo James, head of Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce.

She said: “Having worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes in my years at Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce, I am looking forward to connecting with more entrepreneurs so we can learn from one another to build ever stronger business in the county.”

The event is sponsored by hosts The Finance Hub, whose founder Gillian Palmer is one of the speakers, along with Victoria Sampson, partner and co-leader at solicitors CooperBurnett, Jess Gibson, founder of local retail loyalty scheme the TN card, and Maddy Bishop, lockdown entrepreneur and founder of sustainable stationery shop Green Planet Paper.

MIYB founder Alison Cork said: “I’m pleased that we’re finally able to celebrate another in-person Make It Your Business event in Tunbridge Wells.

“Creating a space for local businesswomen to network with each other and learn from each others’ successes – and failures – is a magical formula, which our audiences tell us time and again gives them valuable insights to apply to their own businesses.”

A writer, broadcaster and entrepreneur Ms Cork is also an ambassador for Business & IP Centre, a British Library spin-off which supports entrepreneurs.
