Medway Business Club was started by founder Margaret Wilson, to supplement a business consultancy business she set up. Having networked across Medway, she felt there was a gap for an inclusive, diverse and membership-based club; with giving back at its heart. Themed networking with expert speakers were also on her wish list and so by creating her own networking group with co-founder Professor Philip Corr on-board to provide the business learning, connections and community support opportunities, the gap was filled. Margaret also owns and runs Tolgate Coffee in Strood, which sponsors the business club. Philip is a well-known and well-respected expert in psychology, both academic and as a speaker.
