Kent Team

Working with other Kent-based professional bodies, media organisations and business exhibitions, CIM Kent Branch provides a range of activities for the county's marketers. These include:

1. CPD events and networking

Throughout the year we run a series of events designed to develop marketers knowledge in key areas. Working with partner organisations, the Kent branch play a key role in Kent2020 Vision Marketing live. This free to attend event is an exciting new forum for forward-thinking marketing professionals, providing new ideas and practical advice via an integrated programme of inspirational keynotes, practical workshops and a highly focused exhibition. Other events during the course of the year include workshops on topics such as copywriting, Search Engine Optimisation and how print can be used to enhance digital marketing strategies. All our events provide a great opportunity to network with other marketing professionals.

2. Small business initiative

We are keen to raise the profile and recognition of the professionalism of CIM members by sharing knowledge and expertise with the small business community throughout Kent. Using professional marketers and aimed at small and medium businesses, the 'Simply Better Marketing' programme helps people to make the most of marketing resources to grow their business.

3. Online discussion

We have an active LinkedIn Group where members can ask questions, make new contacts, share views and expertise and contribute to shaping the activities of the Kent branch. If you would like to join the Kent branch committee, please contact Clive Reddihough.
