Peer Support Meetings
Peer support meetings (or getting together with others in the same boat). Experience has taught us that setting up your own business, being self-employed or trying to grow your business can be a challenge. How do we know? Because we have done it or are doing it.
We know that some days you will wonder why you thought this was a good idea or that you have taken a major step forward and somehow your family or friends just don't get the importance of it. The old saying "a problem shared is a problem halved" has never been truer. That's where our Peer Support meetings come in.

Forget business meetings - these friendly, informal sessions are a great way to meet other like-minded people.
You will always find a warm welcome, and lively discussion.
The meetings usually have a theme, for example marketing or using social media, and sometimes there will be a guest speaker. There is always the opportunity for round-table discussion, and sharing views and ideas. It's a great place to brainstorm ways to solve a problem and to meet others with whom you may even be able to collaborate.
Meetings take place at a variety of locations and online and include specialist groups such as creative businesses, bookkeepers and accountants, adventure tourism businesses or those working with long-term health issues.
