New programme brings D2N2 businesses together for economic recovery

Businesses across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are being invited to join a new business network programme which aims to help companies recover from the impact of COVID-19.

The Peer Networks programme will bring cohorts of businesses together to support each other and collaboratively work through common business issues as well as benefit from one-to-one coaching on a range of topics.

The programme is part of the government’s national COVID-19 response catering for businesses in a range of areas, from leisure and hospitality to construction and advanced manufacturing.

Frank Horsley, Head of Business Growth and Innovation at D2N2 explains: “We know that many businesses in our region are being hit hard by the pandemic and this is a way for us to support them to develop a robust recovery plan.

“Whether it’s overcoming business challenges, supporting staff, or learning how to use technology in new ways, peer groups will be able to learn from others who have faced the same problem and make sure that they’re in the best possible position to recover from the effects of the pandemic.”

The programme is delivered through a series of virtual high impact group sessions, with trained facilitators. Businesses will also be guided through the latest information on government support available to them as part of the COVID-19 recovery package.

Businesses can apply to join D2N2 Network through the D2N2 Growth Hub.
