Kent Business Leaders’ Dinner delivers insight

January, 2019

Taking the opportunity to meet with other business owners, Andrew Metcalf and Philip Jones, the two founding directors of Kent-based PR and marketing agency Maxim, joined more than 90 people at a recent Kent Business Leaders’ Dinner.

Organised by Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce, and held at the 12th century Allington Castle, near Maidstone, the dinner welcomed senior representatives from its Patrons’ Scheme, and guest speaker Claire Walker, Co-Executive Director of Policy and Campaigns at the British Chambers of Commerce.

Held under Chatham House rules – so we can’t tell you what was said during the event – except suffice to say, Claire outlined BCC’s work in championing business and three key policy areas: People, Infrastructure and Trade, all vital issues for Kent’s business community.  

“It was a great opportunity to hear first-hand from other businesses in terms of their confidence, as this will help us determine how best we can support our clients with PR, marketing and public affairs advice over the coming months,” said Andrew.  

“With the clock ticking down to March 29, it’s clear there is ongoing uncertainty, scepticism and a degree of anger among the business community over the lack of clarity. There’s a growing demand for national leadership, and for Parliament to recognise the importance of securing a strong economy to help sustain our communities, especially those that feel they have been ignored in recent years.” 

Andrew attended in his capacity as a board director of Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce.
