27 September: Women Connect Peer to Peer Board

27 Sep 2023

The Growth Hub are launching a new fully-funded Peer-to-Peer programme for businesses located in North Yorkshire which will begin from September 2023, including a cohort delivered by Yorkshire in Business for women to connect peer-to-peer.

Women Connect Peer to Peer Board

Do you feel isolated in business with few opportunities to delve into key issues, challenges and opportunities?

Have you lost focus, drive and motivation to continue to grow your business?

Are you considering going into a different market sector but lack the confidence and knowledge to do this?  Women Connect Peer to Peer Board can empower you with the knowledge and expertise that could enable you to take that leap.

Fully funded,  you can utilise your own revenue to grow your business, spend some real time on your business strategy and see your business grow.

This is a chance to work with a group of like-minded women from non-competing areas with the aim of sharing tips, techniques, knowledge and experience to solve  key challenges, uncover opportunities and build connections.

Think of it as having your own professionally facilitated informal board. Women Connect is designed for businesswomen invested in developing their business and helping others to do the same

Benefits to your business

  • Objective advice to help meet challenges and grasp opportunities
  • Help to make the decisions which will move your business forward
  • Mentor support to keep you accountable
  • Help for your business to grow

What to expect

  • Structured and professionally facilitated meetings on and off line
  • Accountability  check each month between meetings
  • Professional yet friendly approach

About the Peer to Peer Programme

Women Connect is fully funded by the York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. All you need is to commit your time to four two hour on line sessions and two in person meetings, which will likely be located in the coastal area of North Yorkshire.
