About Kiwi Social Evenings

At the Kiwi Social we realise running your own business can be a lonely affair – especially if you are working alone from your kitchen table.  Here at The Kiwi Social we are building a community to help you to bounce ideas, talk with, and learn from other like-minded people.  The Kiwi Social community will be your office and the members will be your colleagues – but with a lot more fun involved and a lot more relaxed and informal.

Our aim is to build a friendly, safe, non-competitive and affordable community, both online via our forum, various Facebook groups and offline at our events.

The Kiwi Social fosters and encourages everyone to take part, from our session leaders to members themselves.  You can expect to have:

  • Guidance
  • Support
  • Continuity – A lasting community which builds strong relationships, personal and working collaborations
  • Sharing – of knowledge, resources and skills
  • Networking

Our “Focus on Social” Academy Evening – are held on the FIRST Thursday of EVERY Month and held at the Chester Crowne Plaza.  Previously these have been our Welshot Biz Bloggers Academy Evenings.

There will always be THREE “Focus On” sessions at these events:

  • Focus on Business & Personal Development – Presentation from an industry expert
  • Focus on Technique – “How to…” learning a technical, technique or software session
  • Focus on Imaging – Practical photographic “How to…” session and creating images that will be useful for you and your marketing

A “Flat-lay” set-up with lighting that you can use to photograph your props and business products will always be made available for your use – guidance, support and help if required will be provided.
