Meet the facilitators | Peer Networks programme

The Peer Networks programme enables local businesses to join forces in a non-competitive environment and use their shared experience to overcome common (or not so common) challenges, find new sales opportunities and expand their networks.

Places are limited but fully funded by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, so there's no cost to your business.

Throughout the programme you will be able to access regular virtual sessions with a group of other Black Country business representatives, to discuss important topics & see what solutions or methods other local companies have put in place.

These sessions will be run by experienced facilitators who will keep each session on track and will be able to provide any relevant information such as contact details or updates on related support opportunities from the Black Country LEP Growth Hub and its local and national partners.
