Business Leaders “You’re not alone” – Peer Networks
Business leaders have been told ‘you’re not alone’ as companies are forced to close their doors and work remotely from home as part of the latest lockdown restrictions.
With COVID-19 cases surging, businesses have once again found themselves working from makeshift home offices, with employees having to juggle the demands of working life with home-schooling children kept away from the classroom.
It all adds up to a tricky time for companies, with senior staff often left feeling isolated and frustrated at being ‘away’ from their business.
But a new fully-funded scheme launched in the South East Midlands for ambitious business leaders has created an expert-led network to stimulate business development and growth.
Peer Networks is a national peer-to-peer programme managed locally by SEMLEP’s Growth Hub. The mentoring sessions are being designed and delivered by experts from the world-leading Cranfield School of Management. It brings together diverse cohort groups of individuals from businesses across Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire to collaboratively work through common issues and develop an action plan to resolve them.
The first cohorts started earlier this month and initial feedback has revealed the sessions are proving a lifeline for business leaders who would otherwise be stuck at home on their own.
The Peer Networks programme is available to any SME business in the South East Midlands that has operated for at least one year and with a turnover of at least £100,000. Ideally, participants should also have the potential to scale up and the ability or potential to export overseas.
A limited number of places on the programme are still available, with businesses urged to sign up as soon as possible to guarantee your place in the cohorts.
You can register your interest in the Peer Networks programme by clicking the button below and filling in the enquiry form on the Growth Hub website.
A representative of SEMLEP’s Growth Hub will then be in touch to discuss further details about your eligibility, the cohorts and start dates.
