Yesterday DigiKind co-founder Kathy Kyle was interviewed by BBC Surrey host James Cannon to talk about community engagement, reimagining the high street, and DigiKind’s involvement in the Small Business 100 campaign. They discussed the future of the high street and how DigiKind supports local BIDs, businesses, non-profits, and councils every day to create community using digital transformation.

Kathy talked about how digital transformation and tech for good platforms can empower and build communities, and how important it is for economic recovery. From more community-based endeavours, sustainable shops and green spaces, our cities and towns are looking for more experiences that will create community in addition to retail, hospitality and tourism. What’s important is that we engage citizens and ask them what they want to see for the future of their public spaces.

DigiKind is proud to be listed as one of the Small Biz entrepreneurs and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating all of the inspirational #SmallBiz100 businesses in this fantastic campaign:
