    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.

          Working smarter for better productivity 

          Course Details: A workshop aimed at the busy business owner, enabling them to make smart decisions about they best utilise their time and resources to develop and grow their business. The workshop will provide them with some practical tools and ideas along with the ‘space’ to start to think about what is important to them and their business.

          Who is it by: Martin Smith from Martin Smith Learning & Development

          This workshop could help you to become:

          More productive but less busy

          • Better organised
          • Less stressed
          • More motivated

          What will I get out of it?
          The workshop will help delegates to identify some golden rules for their own personal Working Smarter processes and rather than simply focus on Time Management as a skill this workshop encourages the delegate to look at ways of being smarter about how and even when they work. After all, we are all different, and I have found that different approaches work for different people. However, simply put, by doing the right things, at the right time and in the right way, they will be more in control of their workload and their stress levels.

          With the accelerating change of the twenty-first century, the ability to work smarter and maximise the use or your personal resources are at the top of the personal development list. This short workshop is designed to provide an exploration of some essential tools to enable greater control and responsibility for how we use our time.
