Medway’s business communities have joined forces to promote Medway and further boost the economy by supporting and promoting the Medway story.
Last year, a major project took place to identify what makes Medway distinctive. Medway residents, stakeholders and business owners were invited to have their say and help shape the Medway story. The bold transformation that has taken place across Medway in recent years, combined with the area’s ambitious regeneration vision, meant it made perfect sense to work with the community to launch a place story for Medway.
Medway is set to become a leading waterfront city over the coming years, an economic powerhouse for the region and a place destined for big things. It is already a popular tourist area in the south-east offering a rich cultural heritage, as well as a thriving economy.
Promoting Medway through partnership – The Medway Champions
The initiative has already secured strong support from a wide range of Medway businesses and organisations keen to stand up for the area and play a part in raising its profile.
A Place Board has been created, bringing together key organisations and individuals across Medway and is chaired by Simon Cook, Principal and Chief Executive of Mid Kent College. The Board has overseen the development of the story and will provide a continuing senior and strong presence, standing up for the area and playing an active role in taking Medway forward.
A Champions programme was launched last year and is already gaining huge momentum. The programme is effectively a place network that will give businesses and organisations the chance to come together to learn about the development of Medway and see how they can support and promote Medway the place, as well as creating relationships that benefit themselves and the area.
The Champions meet every two month with a packed agenda and guest speakers. If you want to get together with other people and organisations that have the passion, enthusiasm, commitment and desire to champion Medway them simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
