Embracing Agility | The lean–Agile Mindset
Darwin’s theory of evolution (it is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change) was powerful and compelling, not only for the natural world but impacted our lives and the business world.
With change being the only constant, Innovation is critical to the survival of any business today, from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to major corporations. In order for businesses to respond speedily to changing consumer behaviour in the face of technological change, they will have to change how they have worked traditionally and embrace the Agile way of working and Lean thinking.
Jason Furman, a Harvard Professor said it perfectly: “Work has a future. No one knows what it is. Whatever it is, education will help”.

At Maidstone Business Networking seats are reserved for specific people who book to attend. Please be in attendance by 6.10pm (at some venues you cannot get access after that time), we start with a speaker for about a 20 to 30 minutes, someone with something to say that everyone should have the opportunity to hear. You get a chance to tell everyone who you are (if you want to) followed by an hour or more of networking and the event finishes around 8.30pm. The events will be on different days of the month, in different parts of the borough of Maidstone. They will have one thing in common, they will be informative, interesting with plenty of time for actual networking. And as there is no meal involved membership is not very costly. You also get to meet anyone and not just the two people you sit next to.
We include searchable lists on this website so you will have a presence on the internet even if you don't have a website. See our new idea on the home page for you to have a website page (or two or more) without paying for a full website.
Your first meeting is free even if you do not join. You can even attend as a non member after that at each meeting for £15pp, but it is not the best deal and you don't get listed on our website! Full membership for a sole trader is only £75 pa and only £95 for a life partner to attend with you or if you employ from 2 to 9 people in your company. It is all about flexibility and value for money. See our rules page. Membership is open to start ups and new as well as established businesses, large or small.
