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 across Plymouth, Devon, Somerset, and Torbay we will create diverse cohort groups 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. 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.

Peer Networks is delivered through a series of high impact group sessions, with each cohort led by a trained facilitator. These sessions will be held online.
