  Tudor Price, Deputy CEO, Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce

Kent Invicta Chamber, through its KCC funded Growth Hub contract, supported more than 18,000 businesses in Kent & Medway during our economy's most turbulent period in recent history.

We will share with you the things we learnt about how resilient or not, Kent businesses were, and what needs to be addressed going forward. Throughout 2020/21, the Chamber's team provided support, and succour to more than 18,000 businesses across Kent & Medway. Working alongside KCC and the Local Authorities, our Team of Advisers engaged with business owners and managers as they battled with impact of Covid lockdown.

Some calls were emotionally harrowing whereas others were inspirational but all of them provided valuable insight and lessons for the future resilience of our economy. During this short session we will impart the lessons we learnt and hope to make your business fit for the future.
