7 Questions with Linden Kemkaran

PR & Marketing Manager, Stag Community Arts Centre


Tell us about your typical Monday morning?


Monday is the busiest day of my week and I hit the ground running.  I quickly catch up on emails and social media, and answer questions from artists looking to promote their shows.  I then take a brisk walk around the building to replace any out of date posters or flyers and generally make sure everything is looking fresh.  The following week’s cinema listings arrive in my inbox around 11am so my next job is to get them to the Chronicle ahead of the print deadline, then design and print the large poster that you see outside.  The afternoon is taken up with […]

7 Questions with Mike Giles from Everynet Solutions


Tell us about your typical Monday morning?

The good thing about being self-employed is that each week can be different, when I’m not working on my current contract, having a coffee in one of the many Sevenoaks coffee shops whilst catching up with emails looking for a new contract and applying for suitable positions. Checking linked in. Studying for another qualification (currently working towards an Ethical Hacking certification)

7 days with Mike Clyne fom FeMan Consulting

Tell us about your typical Monday morning.

As I work from home I do the school drop off and then often nip into Knole Park for a run.  This is without doubt one of the greatest benefits of working for yourself!  Once at my desk, I am catching up not only with emails that have come in over the weekend and checking social media, LinkedIn etc but also reading the papers.  Working on my own I feel this is vital to stop myself becoming too isolated.

2. Can you explain about FeMan Consulting and what you do? It is very simple – to […]

7 Questions with David Dennis from Sevenoaks Plans


Tell us about your typical Monday morning?

Dropping my son off to School is the perfect start to the week!  Once I am in the office, I touch base with my staff to check the progress of each project they are working on. I answer any enquiries I have received over the weekend and contact potential clients to arrange a meeting. I will then call the local planning office and speak to the relevant planning officer to check on the progress of my planning applications and of course ask them the million dollar question ‘when do you anticipate a decision to be made on the planning application?’ If I have any news I will give my current […]
