Businesses in the North Kensington area have expressed an interest in more collaboration with each other and other businesses in the wider area.

Business Meeting


Portobello Business Centre has undertaken considerable work locally resulting in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea asking us to proceed in partnership with the Council, Greater London Authority and local businesses to help develop this forum. 

If you are, or somebody you know is a business based in North Kensington and you would like to:

  • Network on a regular basis with other like minded business owners and exchange ideas
  • Be kept informed of issues and opportunities that will affect their local trading area
  • Upgrade your skills with short presentations from experienced professionals
  • Access decision makers

you can now subscribe and become a member. The first 50 businesses will benefit from a Free Subscription.

Our goal is to run 5 Business Forums during the year July 2020 – June 2021.

At the moment PBC has organised two virtual meetings following Government guidance due to the current circumstances, in June and September 2020.

Businesses had the opportunity to meet Councillor Catherine Faulks (Lead member for Economy, Employment and Innovation), ask questions and get their answers in a friendly atmosphere, as well as to listen to experienced professionals covering interesting business topics.

For the last 20 minutes, businesses were separated into smaller groups (Break Out Rooms) giving them the chance to network and build their contacts.

North Kensington Connected is growing steadily and we now have almost 40 businesses of differing sizes as part of the forum. These range from sole traders to businesses with almost 50 employees. Furthermore, the forum is now starting to make a difference with business referrals now taking place between forum members. We will also be building a dedicated discounted services offering for our members.

The next Business Forum is scheduled FOR A DATE in November 2020.

To become a member please complete the form below.

Our Team will contact you with your unique membership number in the next couple of weeks.
