Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce invite you to apply for the Peer Networks initiative. We are delighted to be supporting the Hertfordshire Growth Hub with their Peer Networks initiative.


This nationwide programme is Fully Funded for all participating companies and will provide support to local businesses during this difficult time.


Peer Networks brings together diverse cohorts of SME leaders who, with the guidance of experienced facilitators, collaborate to find solutions to existing barriers to growth.

Digital (including adoption and implementation of technology, cyber security)
Use of data to drive value in the business
EU transition

Led by an experienced facilitator these Peer Networks will meet fortnightly for two-hour sessions over 18 weeks starting in end of October, early November 2020. Each company will also receive an additional complimentary 3.5 hours of coaching in a one-to-one session with the facilitator to discuss their own business needs.

Active involvement in the Peer Network is designed to enhance the leadership capabilities, knowledge, and confidence of business owners within a local region. It will help build local connectivity and strength within the SME business community.
