What can I expect?
- Hear how other companies are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and find out their plans for now and the future.
- Bite-size updates. Topics are led attendees and can include anything from strategy and finance to innovation or motivation.
- Collaboration with local businesses. Attendees are exploring how they can reach new audiences at a lower cost with a more compelling proposition.
These webinars are delivered by Biskit Ltd and The Realistic Business Consortium on behalf of Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
"I have so far attended 2 of the peer to peer zoom meetings and have found them invaluable. The ability to speak with other business owners about how we are feeling and the issues we are facing has given me a great boost. The support, knowledge and guidance provided from Ed and Malcom is brilliant. I have already recommended it to my local business contacts and I cannot believe why anyone would not take advantage.” - Home & Garden Supplies.
"I've attended two Peer-to-Peer sessions now and they have been an invaluable support for me at a difficult time. Attending these sessions has inspired me to become more agile in my thinking and identify a number of ways I can potentially pivot my business. Thank you to the LEP and the Biskit team for taking the initiative to provide this excellent Peer to Peer forum." - Professional Photographer
In the first few sessions alone, we’ve heard how companies are spotting new opportunities right now, pivoting their business to capture sales. We’re also seeing others look to the future, and start laying plans to adapt to a post COVID-19 environment that might still involve social distancing.
