Growth Platform launches Liverpool City Region initiative

23rd November 2020

Liverpool City Region’s Growth Platform has launched a new leadership initiative.

Businesses across the area are being urged to sign-up for the Peer Networks programme, which is funded by the government.

It is designed to give leaders the advice they need from trusted sources within a peer group and give them the opportunity to collaboratively work through common issues.

Janice Mears, head of business growth at Growth Platform, said: “It’s been a challenging year for businesses in the Liverpool City Region and this will no doubt continue as a result of the lasting impacts of the pandemic and the looming EU transition deadline.

“Regional businesses need all the advice and insight they can get to help them stabilise their operations and identify growth opportunities.”

Mark Bayley-Smyth, managing director of Circle Leadership, added: “As our city region has demonstrated throughout its rich history, we are always strongest when we come together, and the Peer Networks will give us a platform to share best practice, navigate challenges and re-build confidence among ourselves as local business leaders and in the city region’s economy.”
