Final spaces on FREE networking programme available to Worcestershire businesses

If you are looking to grow your business and have access to support from likeminded successful business contacts, the Peer Networks programme, delivered by the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce on behalf of Worcestershire Growth Hub is available to Worcestershire businesses for free!

The programme is delivered through a series of high impact group sessions, with each cohort led by an expert facilitator. The latest cohort of Peer Networks will include interactive action learning within small groups, trained facilitators, flexible topic selection and finally one to one coaching.

Peer Networks create diverse cohort groups of individuals to collaboratively work through common business issues. Through interactive action learning, the Peer Network groups will enable you to discuss your own challenges, gain and reflect on valuable feedback and implement practical solutions to overcome them.

Previous cohorts of the programme have already seen results of signing up, Nicola Burston, Finance Director of MT Cold Storage Solutions Ltd, said: “Peer Networks provides an opportunity to look at issues beyond the day to day running of any business. Expertly facilitated, the programme gives a unique space for likeminded peers to question, challenge and hold accountability for their actions within their business. As an individual new to business leadership, it has been invaluable to my personal development and leadership skills.”

Daniel Walton, Managing Director of OLPRO, said: “I was definitely sceptical of Peer to Peer networking but really enjoyed getting to chat openly with other company founders and senior managers about problems we all found in business. The programme was excellent because different things were covered throughout. Leadership and Innovation were the key things for me that improved once we’d done the course. It made for solutions we would not have found otherwise.”

OLPRO have built on the foundations of Peer Networks and have had a hugely successful 2021, including being named as High Growth Business of the Year, and Exporter of the Year at the Chamber Business Awards in September. The Peer Networks scheme will provide your business the opportunity to grow and succeed.

Peer Networks is designed for business leaders who have ambitions to grow and develop their business for future success. By taking part in Peer Networks you will build a trusted network of connections to support you now and in the future that will provide a platform for your business to overcome challenges and realise new opportunities.

To be eligible, your businesses must have operated for at least one year, have at least 5 employees and an aspiration to scale up and improve your business in order to sign up for a free space on the latest Peer Network cohort.
