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

Our 2021/22 Peer Networks programme is now closed, as of February 2022.

How have businesses benefit from the peer networks programme?

Over 230 businesses from across Oxfordshire benefited from this fully-funded support programme, created to develop potential for future growth and productivity.

The Peer Networks programme ran for 9 weeks and brought cohorts together online with groups of around 10 business leaders, helping to tackle each other’s challenges by sharing ideas and experience. All the meetings were facilitated to ensure active learning and every group member also received mentoring help from business experts of their choice, to work with them on specific issues. 

The programme includes:

  • Interactive action learning
  • Trained facilitators
  • Small groups
  • Flexible topic selection
  • One-to-one coaching
