The Growth Hub Approach

What is Peer Networks

Delivered locally by The Growth Hub, the Peer Networks programme creates diverse cohort groups of individuals to collaboratively work through common business issues. Through interactive action learning, the programme enables business leaders to discuss their own challenges, gain and reflect on valuable feedback and implement practical solutions to overcome them.

How does it work

Peer Networks is designed for business leaders who want to grow and develop their organisation for future success. The programme is delivered through a series of high impact group sessions, with each cohort led by a trained facilitator. Some of the programme's key points include interactive action learning, trained facilitators, small groups, flexible topic selection, and one-to-one coaching.

Benefits of Peer Networks

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, such as their peers, when presented with external challenges and opportunities. Peer Networks enables you to make connections that go far beyond networking.

By completing Peer Networks, you will:

  • Overcome business challenges and recognise and act on new opportunities.
  • Build a trusted network of connections to support you now and in the future.
  • Improve your long-term personal and business performance.
