The Peer Networks programme is for SME leaders that want to stabilise, grow and develop their organisation with the support of like-minded entrepreneurs from across the Liverpool City Region’s business community.
It provides a virtual community for business leaders to get together to discuss their collective business challenges; think-up solutions to them; and plan long term recovery and growth.
The programme includes 18 hours of interactive groups sessions which will be delivered fortnightly by trained facilitators, each participating SME can also access a further 3.5 hours of one-to-one support with an expert business adviser scheduled to suit their needs.
Each member will have the opportunity to present an opportunity, challenge, or problem to their group, and engage in collaborative discussion with other members to find practical solutions via the action learning methodology that the programme encourages.
