peer networking

 

Business Support from People Like You

Following its successful launch and implementation last year, Peer Networks returns to Worcestershire for 2021.

Peer Networks isn't like other business support. It’s not like other networking either. Every fortnight you'll meet up with a regular cohort of business leaders like you. Together, you’ll work to solve and overcome each other’s challenges and problems as you strive to develop and grow your businesses. Learn from the experiences of other business leaders and entrepreneurs and share your own wisdom and learnings, building a support group of your peers as you do so. No self-styled gurus or costly consultants; just practical support and advice from people who have been there and done it.

Applications Now Open for September

If you missed out on the opportunity to join the programme last year, then register you interest today and join the conversation.

To be eligible for Peer Networks you must have:

  • Operated for at least one year
  • At least five full time employees
  • A turnover of at least £100,000
  • An aspiration to improve

Build a network of equals, get fresh perspectives on your issues and dodge the bullets ahead by listening to the lessons and experiences of your peers. Complete the form to register your interest or discover more.

 

We're only operating Peer Networks in Worcestershire but if you're in another area we can signpost you to the relevant contacts
