What is the New Anglia Peer Networks Programme?

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

The New Anglia Peer Networks fully-funded programme is delivered through the Growth Hub and will support over 200 eligible businesses.

We create diverse cohorts of individuals 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. Up to 18 hours of networking support is provided through the programme, as well as up to 3.5 hours of one-to-one support matched to the specific needs to your business, to help build on your learning experience. From finance and HR to sales, marketing and more, our expert business consultants give you the flexibility to create a trusted support network that works for you. We can help you build and strengthen your business, improve its overall performance and increase your own leadership confidence.

In Summary

Up to 11 business leaders will come together every fortnight (via Zoom) for a three-hour session to develop their own business knowledge and share this through a network of likeminded people. This is then followed up with individual coaching sessions.

Let’s start 2022 by helping you develop and grow your business.
