    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 business owners that are looking to grow and develop their business. 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.

    NETWORKING EVENT
    Networking Breakfast with Sussex Bay

    You’re invited to discover Sussex Bay; a vision of hope supporting nature recovery across the sea, coast and rivers along 100 miles of Sussex coastline, from Selsey in the West to Camber Sands in the East. Hidden below the water, vital habitats and the vast array of life they support, are out of sight, out of mind. Exposed to diverse and increasing pressures, these precious ecosystems - our blue natural capital – have been catastrophically damaged or lost. Restoring these ecosystems and their blue natural capital helps protect our coasts from storms, clean our waters, store carbon and support biodiversity.

    Adur & Worthing Councils initiated the development of a vision for Sussex Bay, leveraging opportunities in natural capital investment to secure funding and support projects for nature restoration. 

    Don’t miss this opportunity to be inspired and get involved in the pioneering efforts to safeguard Sussex Bay for future generations!
