Kingston Guildhall Event with the Chamber of Commerce and Mayor

This Kingston Guildhall event was for anyone like me, in business on their own. It’s important to get out and network with other people in business, to share experience and expertise and sometimes pass on business referrals. I attend Kingston Chamber of commerce, it’s not as middle-aged, male and pale as many networking groups, and it’s growing in size.

These pictures are from the Chamber breakfast in Kingston Guildhall with the Mayor. A group involved in the Young Enterprise Scheme came to pitch their product, a series of children’s book which they’d written and illustrated. They were very impressive.

Who’d do Their Business in a Stuffy Chamber?

Kingston Chamber of Commerce had a business networking meeting at The Canbury Arms in Kingston. A group of Young Enterprise competitors from a local school came along to pitch their product. They were fantastic – clear, articulate, lucid and with an enviable confidence that many of us grown-ups would envy.

Like many middle-aged men, I wear a suit to these events, but I’m in a minority, Kingston of Commerce is relaxed and friendly. Not that you can’t be relaxed and friendly in a business suit, but the membership is not dominated by grey middle-aged men, like me. Given that is was International Women’s Day, it was great to attend a meeting roughly balanced between genders.
