Announcement regarding the Awards Evening this October!

“In case you’ve missed the exciting news in the last 24 hours regarding the Kettering Business Network, the KBN has been short listed as a Finalist for Networking Group of the Year for 2016 at the Northamptonshire SME Business Awards this October.

The inaugural awards evening takes place on Thursday 27th October in Daventry and we are listed amongst three other Finalists in our category, all of whom are established business networks. We have SEVEN places available for people to attend on the evening to represent the KBN and I have spoken to those who have been instrumental in getting the network off the ground since we held our first ever meeting in a coffee shop last June to offer them the opportunity to represent the KBN on the evening.

As soon as I have final confirmation that the seven places have been confirmed, I will be opening the invite to attend to everyone else on a first come first served basis as there may be an opportunity to attend outside our allocation of seven seats. This will happen on Monday 1st August. Tickets are £65 + VAT per person to attend and the evening is a Black Tie event.

Payment will need to be made with your expression of interest by 15th August and I cannot guarantee 100% that additional tickets will be available until this date. If you would like to apply for a ticket for the evening in October, my suggestion is to contact me immediately.

We should be extremely proud of ourselves at the progress that the KBN has made inside 14 months when our first meeting started with just four of us! I am absolutely delighted with us being listed as a Finalist and this is fantastic news for the town and surrounding area for the many SME’s, sole traders and small businesses especially as our network is a not for profit network and has been built on foundations of hard work and determination.”

Fingers crossed!
