Knowledge, clarity and understanding

It is designed to help participants gain knowledge, clarity and understanding around five key business issues where technology can influence board level attitudes for change, security and stability of technology, data analytics and reporting accessibility, customer experience, and attracting and retaining talent.

Places on the programme are strictly limited to 15, and one person per company, so Sefton Council is urging local business leaders to sign up now by visiting The application process takes less than two minutes.


Run by Liverpool-based independent IT Consultancy, Aabyss, the programme consists of five, 90-minute in-person learning sessions over six months. Through focused learning and peer-to-peer support, the programme will provide participants with the tools and support to understand the impact and direction technology has on your business now and how to identify areas for positive change.

Signing up for the City Region Digital Growth Peer Network also provides a free optional one-to-one consultancy and action planning session and free membership to the Digital Growth Alumni events.

Specialist advice

Sefton Council Leader Cllr Ian Maher, who is also Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Portfoilio holder for Digital Connectivity & Inclusion said: “This is a great opportunity for some of Sefton’s small and medium employers to ensure they are making the most of technology to drive and expand their business through specialist advice and learning from their peers.

“The Network will mean they can hear the latest thinking of thought leaders, have access to learning materials and the ability to set up action planning meetings with industry experts or other community members.

“There are only 15 places available on the Programme’s first cohort so I would urge Sefton business leaders who want to develop a strong plan for digital growth to sign up now.”
