Following last year’s success, Kent Business School (KBS) organises the second edition of the KENT BUSINESS SUMMIT in partnership with the Institute of Directors (IOD), the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and Locate in Kent (LiK).

At this exclusive event, Kent businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs will come together with local government representatives, Kent MPs, academics and students to discuss how to sustain economic growth for the County. By providing a platform, KBS and its partners want to help build a resilient Kent business community and facilitate a dialogue with (local) MPs and government about challenges and opportunities ahead.
