RSVP for a place on a forum

Apart from providing a social hub, one of our core objectives at The Hive is to maximise networking opportunities for local businesspeople.

So, as part of this initiative and in preparation for the 7th October, we’re holding a series of intimate forums to encourage local business people to bring their ideas to the table, in the form of ‘Wealden Open Forums’.

We have teamed up with experienced business and development coach, Philip Crocker of Darwin Whitty, to host a series of mini debates, each comprising 6 to 8 people. Chairing the discussions, Philip Crocker has a warm and engaging personality with a very natural conversational style that allows delegates to enter into a powerful dialogue in which all sorts of change can happen. Philip has a wealth of experience in commercial, regulated markets, public and not-for-profit sectors. He currently acts as Mentor and Executive Coach to senior leaders at CEO and Director level and is an accredited coach supervisor.

Co-hosted by The Hive and Darwin Whitty, our Wealden Insights Mini Roundtables will be held on the first Thursday of each month between March and July 2020, from 6pm. Participation is free of charge, on a first-come first-served basis and includes tea, coffee, cordial, baklava, vanilla cream filo pie or biscuits on us. Alcoholic drinks and any other snacks or meze are to be paid for.
Forum dates:
Thursday 5th March 2020 at 6.00 p.m
Thursday 2nd April 2020 at 6.00 p.m
Thursday 7th May 2020 at 6.00 p.m
Thursday 4th June 2020 at 6.00 p.m
Thursday 2nd July 2020 at 6.00 p.m
