G4C takeover Boom Battle Bar, Canterbury

You really showed up!! 

From darts to mini-golf, and from shuffle boards to axe throwing, over 70 of you showed up to our G4C Kent event on March 7th and made it an unforgettable evening! 

Having launched just six months ago in October 2023, as a committee we’re truly overwhelmed with the response we’ve received to date and can’t believe we had a sold out event last month. This shows the need across Kent and within our wider industry for communities such as G4C Kent that promote early-career networking, the organic development of professional relationships, learning and professional development opportunities, and of course a lot of fun too!

G4C Kent’s aim is to enhance our diversity and opportunities to connect and collaborate with a variety of disciplines across the Kent construction network and we will hold quarterly events that revolve around networking and learning. We will alternate each event to allow for CPD elements, encouraging us all to expand our construction knowledge and ensure our industry is fit for the future. 

Our March event was kindly sponsored by b&m, a quantity surveying and construction consultancy with offices in Canterbury and Brighton, who are passionate about promoting NextGen careers. For future events, we will look to seek sponsorship from other likeminded organisations within Kent to support the growth of our future leaders. If you’re interested in sponsoring a future event, please reach out to us. 

Our next event will be taking place on Thursday 13th June from 4-8pm. This time you can expect another interesting evening involving both networking and CPD that features art, culture, and regeneration. So save the date and stay tuned to find out more, with further comms expected to be released in the coming month. 

Finally, as a plea from the committee, we would politely ask that everyone who wishes to attend our events registers their interest in advance. As we’ve had a lot of interest to date, this helps us plan our venues and capacity requirements. For each event, there will be an Eventbrite sign up but you’re also welcome to email to be added to the attendee list. 

huge thank you once again for coming along to support our March event and we can’t wait to see you all again soon in June!
