About Peer Networks

Peer Networks is a national peer-to-peer networking programme for SME leaders that want to grow and

Delivered locally by Kent & Medway Growth Hub, we create diverse cohort groups of individuals to collaboratively work through common business issues. Through interactive action learning, we enable you to discuss your own challenges, gain and reflect on valuable feedback and implement practical solutions to overcome them.
