Express your interest in the Worcestershire Peer Networks Programme
What is 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.
This programme has been designed to allow businesses and business owners to share and gain knowledge and help from expert facilitators.
The programme was successfully delivered by the Worcestershire Growth Hub during the first quarter of 2021. We created diverse cohort groups of individuals who were able to collaboratively work through common business issues.
Through interactive action learning, these cohorts were able to discuss their own challenges, gain and reflect on valuable feedback and implement practical solutions to overcome them.
See how businesses benefitted from the first phase of the programme in our success stories which can be found further down this page.
More information on the benefits, eligibility criteria and delivery of the programme can be found below.
We are now inviting businesses to express their interest to join the Peer Networks Programme
Building on the success from phase 1, we are inviting organisations to submit their expressions of interest for the next wave of the programme.
