Peer support meetings

Peer support meetings (or getting together with others in the same boat). Experience has taught us that setting up your own business, being self-employed or trying to grow your business can be a challenge. How do we know? Because we have done it or are doing it.

We know that some days you will wonder why you thought this was a good idea or that you have taken a major step forward and somehow your family or friends just don’t get the importance of it. The old saying “a problem shared is a problem halved” has never been truer. That’s where our Peer Support meetings come in.

Forget business meetings - these friendly, informal sessions are a great way to meet other people who are setting up or running their own businesses or ventures. You will always find a warm welcome, and lively discussion.

The meetings usually have a theme, for example marketing or using social media and sometimes there will be a guest speaker. There is always a lot of round-table discussion, sharing views and ideas. It’s a great place to brainstorm ways to solve a problem and to meet others with whom you may even be able to collaborate.

Meetings take place at a variety of locations throughout East Perthshire and include specialist groups such as women in business, tourism businesses or those working with long-term health issues.
