The benefits of Peer Networks:

  • Find solutions to the challenges your business is facing by working with other local business leaders experiencing similar circumstances.

  • You can join Peer Networks' virtual sessions from the comfort of your home or office - so other than your time, there is no cost to join.

  • Activities take place in structured, small group sessions, led by a skilled professional facilitator to make sure you see real results.

  • Access to 1:1 mentoring, coaching or advice if you need it.

  • You will not be placed in a group with any competitors, so you can freely share your expertise and benefit from others.

Managed locally by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority Growth Hub, the mentoring sessions are being designed and delivered by a partner with a proven record of supporting entrepreneurs for SME leaders that want to grow and develop their organisation for future success.

You will attend group sessions with fellow owner-managers, along with an individual mentoring session, developing an action plan to prepare your business for the post-pandemic, post-Brexit world through collaborative learning.

Those currently involved in the programme have said that the sessions are so valuable and the collaborative support and learning from other business leaders is important.
