Welcome to our May Newsletter!
So this is the new norm!
This is an image that will in part define what lock down has been for a lot of us. Without intention to promote one platform over another, the word Zooming will no doubt be updated in the English language, if it hasn't already? This is a snapshot from one of our weekly mastermind groups and it makes us immensely proud to know that even when businesses have been hit hard, the driving force behind them, the Business Owners themselves, are still meeting, supporting each other, collaborating and planning and preparing to bounce back out of these uncertain times. Without all of the support our volunteers have given, and the resilience of the business to keep going we are confident that we will look back on these images as times we truly did pull together and succeed.

"As a self employed business owner I've really appreciated the advice and knowledge shared from the Kent foundation since the start of the coronavirus outbreak. With such uncertain times it’s reassuring to have experts and leaders on hand to break down the information and government guidance into manageable pieces that I can relate to my own business. The extra sessions they have provided in topics such as finances and even mindset have been interesting and relevant and I’ve loved the social aspect of participating in online masterminds! Its really helped to be a part of a community like the Kent Foundation, especially at times like this, and it means a lot to me to know that I’m not alone. They have done a great job in bringing everyone together at a time when it’s essential for us to be apart and it’s good to know that they’re there, should I ever need them.”

Mastermind Online via Zoom.
What is it?
We know that business can be a lonely place at times so getting together regularly with other like minded business owners can be a real boost. These events are all about being connected, forward thinking and solution focused. The Kent Foundation Mastermind groups aim to create a safe space to share business challenges and form professional relationships with other local young entrepreneurs for the purpose of supporting one another in business. The groups allow young entrepreneurs to share, considerate and give constructive suggestions to build up other business owners.
