New Anglia Peer

Network programme

Grow and develop your organisation for future success with our Peer to Peer programme.

What is the New Anglia Peer Network programme?

Peer Networks is a national peer-to-peer networking programme for SME leaders that want to grow and develop their organisation for future success.

The New Anglia Peer Network programme is delivered through our Growth Hub and will support up to 250 eligible businesses free of charge.

We 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.

Up to 18 hours of free networking support is provided through the programme as well as up to 3.5 hours of one-to-one support matched to specific needs to your business to help build on your learning experience.

From finance and HR to sales, marketing and more, our expert business consultants give you the flexibility to create a trusted support network that works for you. We can help you to build and strengthen your business, improve its overall performance and give you the ability to trade in the ‘new normal’.
