Designed for business leaders who want to grow and develop their organisation for future success, LCR High Growth Peer Networks are fully funded by Liverpool Growth Hub and consists of five 3-hour sessions over a ten week period.

“One of the most useful cross sector forums I have ever been involved in” – Lisa Furlong, Director, Mole Group

What is involved?

The LCR High Growth Peer Networks programme provides an exciting opportunity to develop the individual skills of business owners and leaders and more broadly advance productivity in the SME community. To ensure maximum impact for the businesses involved – and the funders – participants must be able to commit to attending the full 15 hours of group sessions.

Sessions will be held fortnightly at the Bluecoat Library in Liverpool City Centre on Wednesday mornings, starting on March 8th 2023. Sessions will start at 10am and finish around 1pm. The sessions will all be scheduled at the start of the programme, so you’ll know which mornings to keep free.

What is Action Learning?

Action Learning is an approach to problem solving and learning in groups to bring about change in
individuals, teams, organisations and systems. It is based on the principle that the most effective learning
takes place in the context in which people are working. A Peer Network is a private group of invited business
leaders, formed to support its participants by working together to share challenges, solutions, knowledge,
expertise and experience.
