What Merton Businesses are saying?

Who is the programme for?

Peer Networks is designed for business leaders who want to grow and develop their organisation for future success. It is open to any SME business in any sector that has:

- Operated for at least one year

- At least 5 employees

- A turnover of at least £100,000

- An aspiration to improve

- And ideally has the potential to scale up or export or is exporting already

Businesses that seek external advice or undertake formal training are more likely to improve their overall performance, but many prefer to take advice from trusted sources, such as their peers, when presented with external challenges and opportunities.

Peer Networks enables you to make connections that go far beyond networking, helping you to overcome business challenges and to recognise and act on new opportunities whilst improving your long-term personal and business performance.

How you and your business can benefit from FREE Peer Networks support?

Learn from your peer:

Find solutions to the real issues your business is facing by working with other local business leaders facing similar challenges

All it takes is your time:

The programme is fully funded so there is no cost to join Peer Networks, other than a few hours of your time each month. You can join virtual sessions from the comfort of your home or office.

Varied delivery, real results:

Networking takes place virtually in structured, small-group sessions, led by professional facilitators to make sure you see real results in return for the investment of your time. You will also benefit from 1:1 mentoring, coaching and advice from trained professionals.


Peer Networks brings together business leaders working collaboratively to find solutions to common problems. You will not be placed in a group with any direct or indirect competitors, so you can share your expertise and benefit from others.


“We were pushed hard and the facilitators’ stood firm with the methodology which impacted and altered the habit of my thinking process. This subtle approach helped us all to refine our ideas and solutions.”​
