The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership are excited to announce the launch of a national Peer to Peer Network initiative which we will be rolling out and delivering locally with our partners in the coming weeks.
The Peer to Peer Networks Programme will see the creation of a series of peer networks through our Solent Growth Hub network, with each group consisting of 8-11 owners or managers from the SME business community participating in each network.
Led by an experienced facilitator, these peer networks will typically meet fortnightly as part of delivering 18 hours of action learning through 2-3-hour sessions. Individual one-to-one support (coaching, mentoring, or advice) will also be provided either directly by the programme, or from other existing schemes to help to implement and manage change.
Active involvement in the peer network will enhance the leadership capabilities, knowledge and confidence of business owners and entrepreneurs within a local region. Helping to build regional connectivity and strength within the SME business community.
Peer Networks is open to any SME business that has:
Operated for at least one year
At least five employees
A turnover of at least £100,000
An aspiration to improve
The potential to scale up
