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.

Delivered locally by the Humber Business Growth Hub in partnership with the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce, we create diverse cohort groups of individuals to collaborative work through common business issues. Through interactive action learning we enable you to discus your own challenges, gain and effect 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.

The Programme

Peer Networks is delivered through a series of high imapct group sessions, with each cohort led by a trained facilitator.

The programme includes:

  • Interactive action learning
  • Trained facilitators
  • Small groups
  • Flexible topic selection
  • One to one coaching

Programme Benefits

Business that seek external advice or undertake formal training are more likely to improve their overall performance, but many prefer to take advice form trusted sources, such as their peers, when presented with external challenges and opportunities.

Peer Networks enable you to make connections that go far beyond networking.

By complete Peer Networks, 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.
