  • Praise for Promotional video.

    School News Group , 14 June 2016

    We wanted a promotional video for our business but had no idea what to do or where to start. Tina and Steve were brilliant from start to finish, they went with our ideas, suggesting improvements when they felt it needed it, they didn't rush us and everything was calm and fun, a most enjoyable experience which I was not expecting. Even when we kept messing up they stayed calm and professional not getting cross or angry. The final product looks fantastic and we are very pleased with it. We are looking forward to sharing our video far and wide and being proud to promote not just ourselves but Keep It In Kent too, keep It in Kent #morethanjustalogo.

  • New Year's awards event

    Anonymous , 11 February 2016

    I attended the KiiK event at the gorgeous Hythe Imperial hotel on 4th February as the guest of a friend who's already a member. It was a really enjoyable evening, and great to see so much common support for local businesses. It was such a lovely atmosphere, not at all stuffy like some awards ceremonies can be. I came away feeling really inspired by the award winners and also by Tina and Steve who are obviously so passionate about what they do! I'm hoping one of my customers will nominate my business for a Keep it in Kent award next year!

  • Joining Keep It In Kent

    Phil Morris , 9 December 2015

    I found the information on the Keep it in Kent website very helpfull, but called Tina just to clarify a couple of details before joining up. I received very personable customer service, Tina answered all of my questions and I decided to go for silver membership. I filled out the forms on the website and paid effortlessly with GoCardless, then I completed my directory listing on the KiiK Website. Once everything was completed I received a phone call from Steve to make sure everything had gone smoothly. I have already received customer enquiries as a result of promotion through Keep it in Kent and my membership pack arrived a few days after joining. Im looking forward to attending the next event and meeting Tina and Steve in person.

    An interesting meeting with a diverse set of businesses in attendance. The topic was well discussed during the evening and the break out groups certainly ensured that there was a chance to mix with other businesses not just those on the same table. It would have been helpful to have had a short introduction from each company present just in case there was a company that would be a good fit or a company within the same or similar market sector.

    It was a great meeting, it was such a shame that more people didn't turn up when they had booked in, maybe they have to pay on booking but then get it back at meetings apparently you can do this via paypal. Well done and a 3 course meal was lovely.

    This was a networking event with a big difference and was very enjoyable. Steve and Tina have clearly thought hard about bringing the best from other networking experiences and adding Tina's tips from her training background which should be really useful to new businesses (and a useful reminder to the more established successful ones also). I was certainly not expecting so much for so little cost.

    Very enjoyable networking meeting in a relaxed and informative atmosphere. Met supportive people and everyone I spoke to joined in with the activities of the workshop and genuinely appeared to want to help. Workshop was engaging and contemporary. Better signage at the location (easy to miss on the main road) and notes about parking. Would have liked to hear from the venue about what they do, how long in business etc, as I hadn't come across them before. More meetings like this!

    A well organised event, with plenty of food for thought and body. A good attendance made it an interesting evening with many different businesses to get to know. I have signed up for membership following this get together as I consider it will bring considerable benefits to my own Kent based business, and Im happy to support Business in the county and promote local commerce.

  • Keep It Kent the Idea

    Peter Andrews , 3 June 2015

    A wonderful concept led passionately by Tina and Steve. The Get Together's are held in some great venues and new ideas for promoting small business' are evolving. It can be as successful as the members and supporters want it to be as Tina and Steve cannot do it all, although they have been pretty good so far. We have to support them.

    A great organisation and concept to help Kent businesses promote themselves to each other and the community at large. Run by a lovely team of hardworking people. Their positive networking skills can make all the difference and if you are a small to medium sized business in Kent it can only do you good to become involved with them/become a member.

    David Campbell-Lenaghan , 3 June 2015

    The venue was just the right size for the event. Tina & Steve managed to pull it out of the bag given the sudden crisis caused by the non-availability of the host & chef, Tony. The event demonstrated the importance of small independent businesses to the local economy as well as the wide range of businesses currently signed up to Keep It In Kent.

  • Social Media Promotion Through KiiK

    Anonymous , 3 April 2015

    Tina at Keep It In Kent very kindly promoted my page on their facebook page. Which resulted in lots of new followers and enquires. They also sent me a sticker, very promptly for my car. I think Tina is doing a fantastic job at promoting lots of up and coming little business ventures. Well done Tina !!!! From. Little Florrie. Seasonal and scented Wedding flowers.

    Brilliant idea. When I first saw Keep it in Kent advertised I thought it was simply about buying/shopping in Kent, in particular products. But it is clearly services too and something I'm particularly keen to promote.

    An inspired idea and important little organisation which hopefully will grow the more people learn about them and understand what they do. They provide an easy platform from which people can network and they are very supportive and encouraging of local businesses - and of other businesses being made aware of what Kent has to offer.

  • A campaign to get behind

    Anonymous , 11 March 2015

    As a business owner and a firm believer in spending my hard earned money in the Kent economy it is so refreshing to find a campaign that supports my values. I was pleased to get a free listing for my company but as I'd like to get actively involved I have also joined as a business member and look forward to attending Keep it in Kent events.
