Network & Support

Feel supported, get connected

Please note: Network & Support sessions were part of the eScalate programme, which closed in April 2023.

Network & Support sessions were for business owners with a level of trading history and were looking to take their business into the next stage of growth.

Business could benefit from knowledge sharing, collaboration and support from industry experts and fellow business owners, within a safe and friendly environment where long-lasting, purposeful and trusted relationships were built.

“Having some questions in advance really helped me to focus on what I wanted to talk about, and allowed us to get straight into detail.”

It’s all in the collaboration

We know our businesses get so much out of their sessions – it’s why we were able to run multiple cohorts of Network & Support groups.

You can find the important info you need below.

What were Network and Support sessions like?

Sessions provided a collaborative environment where long-lasting, purposeful, and trusted relationships were built. An experienced facilitator together with a small cohort of your peers (and specialist advisors where applicable) provided a vital sounding board to challenge thinking, unlock opportunities, and enhance decision-making ability.

How did the Network and Support groups work?

Cohort spaces were limited to 10-12 individuals in order to maximise the benefit for those participating. Sessions were delivered online via Zoom and were two hours long. There was ample time to discuss business challenges and to support others with theirs.
