Sir Ed Davey at Kingston Expo

Would-be Lib-Dem leader, Sir Ed Davey describes what it’s like to be in a leadership race. For the Tories that is, he and Jo Swinson, the other Lib-Dem leadership wanna-be are always lovely to each other. Sir Ed is MP for Kingston

Kingston University Business School hosts the Business Expo each year, organised by the Kingston Chamber of Commerce. Always a popular event and a good opportunity to interact with a wide range of businesses. As well as the exhibitor stands, there were a number of talks and speed networking.

Here are some happy exhibitors…

Kingston Chamber of Commerce Double Tree Event Photography

This Kingston Double Tree event gave the lie to the lazy prejudice that chamber’s of commerce are full of full of middle-aged white men. Many of us are actually beyond middle-age!

Kingston Chamber of Commerce growing membership is youthful and almost gender-balanced, so its events are all the more interesting and enjoyable. There are many great people in it’s membership happy to offer help and advice, and most importantly, pass on referrals for jobs.

I started my business after a career as an employee, so the Chamber’s been a great way to become a part of the local business community.

The Chamber sets out to be be fun, so this year’s President, Forbes Lowe of Forbes Design gave the annual charity fund-raising President’s Ball a Las Vegas theme with casino tables and an ABBA tribute group.

Get in touch to discus photography at you upcoming event. More event photography.

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.
