New Peer Networks to launch across England

6 August 2020

Ambitious businesses in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes can come together and work collaboratively as part of our new peer-to-peer networking programme.

Peer Networks is a new programme, designed exclusively for SMEs, that will be launched later this year across England and delivered locally by SEMLEP’s Growth Hub.

Diverse cohorts of individuals from companies across the South East Midlands will team up

to collaboratively work through common business issues and develop a plan for your organisation to build for future success.

Our expert facilitators will be on hand 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 overall performance.

Who is it for?

The free programme is available to any SME business that has:

  • Operated for at least one year
  • At least five employees
  • An aspiration to improve

Ideally you will have the potential to scale-up or export, or you are exporting already.

How does it work?

Peer Networks is delivered through a series of nine online two-hour group sessions and a half-day one-to-one session with a trained facilitator. The programme includes:

  • Action oriented learning
  • Small groups
  • Flexible topic selection
  • One to one coaching

How will it benefit my business?

Peer Networks enables you to make connections that go far beyond basic networking, building a team of trusted sources you can rely upon when presented with external challenges and opportunities.

By completing the Peer Networks programme, you will:

  • Overcome business challenges and recognise and act on new opportunities
  • Build a trusted network of connections to support you now and in the future
  • Improve your long-term personal and business performance
