Vice-Chancellor’s Business Games – Jubilee Edition..

This event is a fantastic opportunity for our partners and local businesses to gather together outside of usual work environments and enjoy some friendly competition. 

Introducing, the Inaugural Vice-Chancellor’s Business Games!

To celebrate the University’s 60th year, we will be remembering and celebrating everything we have achieved through a number of events, community engagement activities and much more. The Vice-Chancellor’s Business Games is just one of these events and businesses will be able to take part in a wide range of exciting sporting activities including Ultimate Frisbee, Sports Day Races and an Inflatable Obstacle Course.

Suitable for all ages and abilities – Teams will compete for the Business Games Trophy 🏆, enjoy refreshments and have the chance to network and make connections in a fun and engaging atmosphere. There will also be fundraising opportunities for our chosen charity, The Young Lives Foundation (YLF).

YLF is an award-winning children’s charity in the South East of England with expertise in Advocacy, Mentoring, Befriending and Activity Programmes. They support over 3,000 young and vulnerable people and our volunteers deliver over 34,000 hours of frontline work every single year.

Abbie Kempe, Director of Enterprise and Engagement said:

With 2022 being our Diamond Jubilee year, it is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our 60 years in the pursuit of excellence in learning, teaching and research.

We recognise the role that the local business community has played in our journey and are proud to be deeply rooted in Kent and Medway. 

The Vice-Chancellor’s Business Games is just one of our Diamond Jubilee year celebratory events, and we would love to welcome existing business connections as well as new ones, to help celebrate our history and shape our future for the next 60 years.

The Games will provide some light-hearted fun outside of our usual office environments- an opportunity to network and fundraise for charitable causes.
