Peer Networks

 

Hertfordshire Growth Hub have launched their new Peer Networks initiative for small business leaders that want to grow and develop their organisation for future success.

The programme creates diverse cohort groups of individuals to collaboratively work through common business issues.  Through interactive action learning, this enables the discussion of challenges and provides valuable feedback to implement practical solutions to overcome them.  From finance and HR to sales, marketing and more, an expert facilitator will give you the flexibility to create a trusted support network, helping to build and strengthen your business and improve overall performance.

Businesses that seek external advice or undertake formal training are more likely to improve their overall performance, but many prefer to take advice from trusted sources when presented with external challenges and opportunities.

This is an opportunity to network with other likeminded business via fortnightly meetings hosted by an expert facilitator and you will also receive 1-2-1 support tailored to your business.
