South Maidstone Business Association started in 2010 and brings easy, simple, friendly networking to your doorstep, helping to support the rural economy, all business, and all sizes. Whether you are working from home or working in London but living locally or employing lots of people locally SMBA is made for you. Benefits of membership. The networking itself is flexible but designed to get people together for business. Sometimes we have a speaker, someone with something to say that everyone should hear. We arrive at 5.45pm for a 6pm start, the events finish around 8 pm, some people stay on later, some even try out the venues food before going home. Generally the events are the last Wednesday of the month with a couple exceptions (November & December). Keep in touch with this page for any changes.

All meetings are hosted by Alan Reading of Custom Marketing Resources, organiser for South Maidstone Business Association. Photo on top of column on right.

Wednesday 28 June - with Lenham Valley Business Association at The Dog & Bear Hotel in Lenham Square, Jo Dodds (2nd on right) will present Using your POWER to Live More: Productivity, Organisation, Wellbeing, Energy and Resilience In this action packed session you’ll learn:

Further information on Jo Dodds After many years in the ‘corporate world’ in Retail HR, Jo Dodds started her own home based business in August 2005 publishing a local community magazine in her town. She expanded the business over the following three years to include, at one stage, eight local magazines. She did this mainly through business networking: connecting with local business people, getting to know them and helping them to achieve their business goals (and not necessarily through advertising in her magazines!). In these days of portfolio careers Jo’s focus is now in two areas. One is back to her roots in HR with specialisms in social media, employee engagement and wellbeing. The other is in working with home based business owners and entrepreneurs helping them to improve their Productivity, Organisation, Wellbeing, Energy and Resilience (their POWER) to enable them to ‘Live More’, to do more of what they want to do. She is constantly working on her own productivity, organisation, wellbeing, energy and respect – she most definitely ‘walks the talk’. And she loves nothing more than passing on her knowledge and bringing understanding and results to her audience and clients. Download leaflet for 28 June.
