West Kent WiRE is a branch of this incredible network. West Kent WiRE was established a few years back and has recently undergone a mini revamp. We have noticed a change in what solopreneurs and small businesses are requiring from local networking groups in our area and so West Kent WiRE is trying our utmost to meet those requirements. So we have decided to look into getting Industry Experts to come in and cover certain topics of running or growing a small business and provide you with the knowledge that you are wanting. There will also be time to ask questions, maybe a mini-brainstorming session and also some networking.
We have two wonderful Co-Leaders, Fiona Blackmore and Sue Gofton. One of them will be your fabulous host at the meetups and greet you with a warm welcome. Then we have our admin wizard, Sharné Bättenhaussen. She is behind the scenes making sure that everything runs smoothly and efficiently.
