Peer Networks is a peer-to-peer networking programme for SMEs delivered by Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, on behalf of the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Growth Hub and the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
We create diverse cohort groups of individuals to collaboratively work through common business issues. The Peer Network address issues such as the current business challenges brought about by COVID-19, the Transition Period and environmental legislation. It will also include ongoing issues ranging from growth strategies and HR to change management and innovation succession planning.
The aim is to improve the region’s business landscape and drive economic prosperity.
Eight cohorts have already successfully launched, with excellent and positive feedback from participants encouraging businesses across Staffordshire to get involved.
We plan to launch the final cohorts in early January, therefore you will need to register your interest as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss out.
