Crawling through the best business minds in Kent

A business event for innovative business owners who like to do things differently. Talks designed to inspire and educate rather than sell. Workshops designed to engage and improve the business world in which we work.

Join us on the 18th May, 6pm – 9pm, for our 2022 Bar Crawl.

You can join us virtually for the talks, but we recommend coming in person!

This event will bring together a room of local businesses to help inspire a change in the behaviours and practices used daily in business when it comes to adopting greener ways of working.

Let us, and our speakers, help educate you on the current environmental crises we are facing and be part of the solution to help inspire sustainable changes across Kent business.

Inspiring change & having fun…

Whilst inspiring change and learning from one another, we’ll also be having fun – after all, this is a “bar crawl”!

Engaging conversation, educational talks, delicious local food, a beer or two and networking over foosball, pool and snacks.

And even our very own indoor market for you to explore.

Join us at Giant Towers, meet other businesses and settle in for an example of how business networking should be.

It doesn’t have to cost the earth!

This event on the 18th May will focus on the changes businesses can make to help be more green – to have an impact and inspire others.

We’ll hear from speakers who’ve dedicated themselves to this very subject, as well from businesses who are on their own journey to making more sustainable decisions.

This is an event to inspire change and make sustainability accessible – no judgement, just businesses learning from businesses.

Talks will be live-streamed for those unable to join us in person – sign up and select virtual attendance if you’d like to watch along, but can’t be there for the beer!

Why should I attend?

We should start by mentioning that this is a no suit kinda event. Would you wear a suit on a bar crawl? It’s not a date! Don your jeans and converse and join us. No suit shaming though of course, if that’s your style.

This event is going to:

  • be interactive, energetic, full of beans!
  • be full of insider knowledge
  • not be a salesy thing
  • include some cold, hard truths
  • inspire business growth
  • provide opportunity to build connections
  • give you something fun to do of an evening!

Who should attend?

Well, that’s a great question. This is an event that aims to help give business decision-makers some more insight into the things others have learnt over the years. Therefore we suggest, but do not limit, that this is the kind of event for:

  • business owners
  • managers
  • directors
  • CEOs
  • heads of departments
  • big cheeses
