“The Peer-to-Peer Programme isn’t sitting around on your hands – it’s practical and intense. You put in the work, you reframe your thinking to get ‘unstuck’ and have protected time to work on your business, not in your business. It’s well worth the time commitment. I’m getting value from both the mentors and peers from Day 1. Join it, play full out, get the benefit. It’s that simple.”

“I’ve been part of the Peer Programme and I would recommend this to a business which is looking to grow or even cross-check that they are heading in the right direction. It’s been useful to work with other business owners to learn different ways to drive business forward as well as help other businesses in return with my knowledge and experience. Well recommended.”
SIMON COX, POPPY DESIGN STUDIO
“The content has been very rich and comprehensive. The facilitation has been great and the guests invited for the topics have the experience and know their stuff. With 11 on the group, it’s been great to get some fantastic input from everyone. There is such a positive vibe on the group with loads of lessons to share and learn from one another. I am looking forward to the rest of the sessions. Thank you and I will definitely recommend the programme.”
