Peer Networks

Businesses tell us that the support they can get from their peers is often the most helpful. That’s why we are creating a network of facilitated peer groups to help you address the challenges you face. As part of a national network, this programme is aimed at SME leaders who want to grow and develop their organisation for future success.

The project will create a community of businesses to collaboratively work through common business issues. Each network will use interactive action learning to enable you to discuss your own challenges, gain and reflect on valuable feedback from your peers, and implement practical solutions to overcome problems and challenges.

From finance and HR to sales, marketing and more, our expert facilitators will work with you to give you the flexibility to create a trusted support network that works for you, helping you to build and strengthen your business and improve its overall performance.

The programme

Peer Networks is delivered through a series of high-impact group sessions, with each cohort led by a trained facilitator.

The programme includes:

  • Interactive action learning
  • Trained facilitators
  • Small groups
  • Flexible topic selection
  • One to one coaching, mentoring and advice

Who is the programme for?

Peer Networks is designed for business leaders who want to grow and develop their organisation for future success.

The programme is available to any SME business that has:

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


Businesses that seek external advice or undertake formal training are more likely to improve their overall performance, but many prefer to take advice from trusted sources, such as their peers, when presented with external challenges and opportunities.

Peer Networks enables you to make connections that go far beyond networking.

How to join

Our cohorts will be delivered through a network of business entities. If you would like to join the programme, complete our enquiry form and one of our delivery partners will contact you as the programme is rolled out over the next few months.
