Coronavirus support: Advice and guidance for businesses COVID-19 Support

Peer Networks

About Peer Networks

Peer Networks is a national peer-to-peer networking programme for SME leaders that want to grow and develop their organisation for future success.

Join together with likeminded business owners over the autumn in a peer group to further cement your business recovery from COVID19 and plan for 2021 success.

Delivered locally by SEMLEP’s Growth Hub, we will create diverse cohort groups of business owners from across Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes to collaboratively work through common business issues. Through interactive action learning, we enable you to discuss your own challenges, gain and reflect on valuable feedback and implement practical solutions to overcome them.

From finance and HR to sales, marketing and more, our expert facilitators 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.
