The best of Kent's small and medium businesses were out in force as a networking event saw some of our leading independent companies get together to exchange ideas.

Hosted by Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce and held at the prestigious Tonbridge School, representatives from local solicitors, engineers, banks, solicitors and charities - among others - were treated to a half-hour display by the Royal Navy Presentation Team, which looked into how our Navy is preparing for the future.

Representatives from HSBC local banking and the Partnership for Profit Improvement were also promoting local business, and many enjoyed guided tours of Tonbridge School's historic buildings.
