          CHAMBER TRAINING ACADEMY
          Peer Mentoring taster session

          What is Peer Mentoring? The Peer Mentoring Groups consist of 8-12 business owners from different business areas who are willing to learn from and support each other by sharing their expertise and varied skill sets in a confidential environment. All the programmes have at their core the concept of Action Learning – this is ‘learning by doing’, focusing on group members’ real business challenges and identifying practical actions they can take to solve them. An experienced facilitator guides the group and holds members accountable.

          What are the benefits?
          •    Thinking time to work on (rather than in) the business
          •    The opportunity to explore challenges in a confidential environment
          •    A diverse pool of wisdom and expertise to draw on
          •    A unique blend of challenge and support from peers
          •    Ideas for new products and services
          •    Practical solutions to specific problems
          •    Potential cost savings
          •    Developing management skills
          •    Building relationships, trust and mutual understanding
          •    Creating an environment of continuous learning


          How will Peer Mentoring help me?
          This programme is for both start up and established businesses that are looking to grow and develop. The content of each meeting is determined exclusively by members themselves including the provision of 6 bespoke workshops as identified and requested by the group. Each member has two scheduled time-slots for introducing their business to the group and reviewing their progress as well as monthly opportunities to present a business challenge for Action Learning sessions. Groups meet for 3 hours once a month over the course of a year.

          Another Chamber initiative to support you and your business! Since 2012, Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce has been offering highly successful peer-to-peer mentoring group programmes to over 60 members and is planning it’s next group.
