The new committee members of Kent Business Society launched their 2016/17 event calendar last week with an introduction to the Business Start-Up Journey, the entrepreneurial programme run by Kent Business School.
The event, which was held in the KBS Lecture Theatre was attended by over 50 new and returning student members of the society, some who had traveled from the Medway campus.
The students were introduced to their elected committee members who spoke about planned business society events for the upcoming year which will include social events as well as the chance for members to hear from industry experts. Students were also given an insight into the Business Start-Up Journey by the Kent Business School ASPIRE project officer and former University of Kent student Alvis Nourrice. Alvis, who graduated last year after studying Computer Science Consultancy now owns and runs two technology companies; NU4 Consultancy, an IT infrastructure management service, and SeyResiKle, a Solar Energy firm based in Seychelles.
Melissa, Vice President of The Business Society was pleased with how the event was received;”it was great for our members to hear about Business Start-Up Journey. It’s an exciting year ahead for Kent Business Society with workshops and events and we look forward to working closely with the business school.”
ASPIRE project officer, Rebecca Smith enjoyed networking with The Business Society students; “It was fantastic to meet so many Kent Business Society members and get such a positive response to the Business Start-Up Journey.”
The event is just one of the ways in which Kent Business School and The Business Society are working together. The society has been given an office at Kent Business School, which they can use to hold to hold committee meetings, and this has proved crucial to the success of the club.
