A double celebration
LOCAL business, TaxAssist Accountants in Kettering, invited the small business community to join them last month for a launch party and networking evening at their new offices on Silver Street. And the event was shared by the new Kettering Business Network.
Accountant Ravi Taggar launched TaxAssist Accountants in Kettering in January, and the team now looks after the tax and accountancy needs of more than 50 clients.
Members of the business community were invited for an evening of fizz, canapés and cupcakes, with the celebrations kicked off by the Mayor of Kettering, Councillor June Derbyshire, who cut the official opening ribbon.
Ravi Taggar said: “We’re delighted by the positive response we’ve had so far; it’s great to finally be settled into our new offices. Thank you to everyone who came along to our launch party.”
The celebration also marked the start of the Kettering Business Network and KBN’s Simon Cox said: “The network is growing all the time – to think at our first meeting we had four people attend . . . we had 25 people attend our September meeting and 28 at the October meeting, with new people getting involved all the time. It’s been magic!”
He added: “The network was set up in the summer as I recognised an opportunity for us all to meet at a low cost, but provide a quick, but quality business network meeting once a month. Since the introduction of the meetings, we’ve had people asking for an evening meeting and we are looking at social events already going into 2016. The growth is incredible and thank you to everyone who has got involved.
“The network is about ‘opportunity’ – to meet people, share ideas, to learn, grow and develop as business leaders and an opportunity to ultimately do business. Together
“We will build a strong community and, in time, help support each other.”
