Exclusive opportunities to promote your business and become part of the Medway Business & Education Community
A Business Engagement and Knowledge Transfer Club Managed and Owned by its Members
The Founding President has decided to set up her own consultancy business 'Medway Professional Services', specialising in resolving Employee Relation Disputes; her first mission was to start networking in the local business community. Although there are some very good networking opportunities, nothing really hit the mark. She was looking for a networking club that she could contribute to, and a club that was inclusive, diverse, and gave back something to the community, be that monetary from membership fees or resources provided by the more privileged amongst us. She was also looking for a networking club that held natural networking opportunities with themes and/or inspirational speakers. The Medway Business Club was born!

Sponsor an event
If you would like to sponsor an event (one sponsor only per event), please put together a simple proposal which will be considered by the Committee. The Committee’s decision will depend on the theme of the event and how it would benefit both your business and the members. For this sponsorship, your name would be on all of the marketing and advertising materials and you can have a banner displayed at the event and a speaking slot.
What do you use the membership fee for?
As a not–for-profit club, the fees are used to manage and promote the Club and each event with any financial surplus put back into community projects in the Medway Towns as agreed by the management Committee.
How often, where and when do you meet?
Networking events 6 times a year, every other month from 12.00pm to 2.00pm, with the opportunity to continue networking following the closing of the event. We try to use different interesting venues around the Medway Towns. We have a different theme for each event which will have 2 or 3 speakers for 15 to 20 minutes each to educate and inform members on topics of interest. These events are NOT appropriate as merely sales pitches for your own business.
