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.
