Peer & group learning

Cambridge Network runs a number of peer groups which offer advice and support from members across the Cambridge business community. Through meetings and networking events, facilitated by the Cambridge Network team, peers share experiences, knowledge, and resources.

At present the following groups are active, and for companies with 20 or more staff these are free as part of the membership:

HR, Learning & Development Group

Formed in 2011 by HR, L&D and OD Managers in Cambridge to explore management and leadership development issues, discuss common HR themes, and to assist collaboration among Cambridge Network member organisations.  The group has regular meetings and frequently shares helpful resources.

Recruitment Group

A special interest group for members to discuss issues related to recruitment. This is an open forum aimed at in-house recruiters, talent acquisition specialists and HR professionals with overall responsibility for in-house recruitment. We also cover employment law and hold semi-regular updates with specialists.

Marketing, Communications and Events Group

Designed as an open forum for marketing and communications professionals, enabling knowledge-sharing and peer learning with meetings being held regularly and hosted at members' organisations.

PA Forum

PAs, Executive Assistants and senior Administrators meet regularly to share peer-to-peer learning and common challenges. 

FD Group

Invitation-only group of Finance Directors and CFOs, meeting twice a year to hear from a speaker over dinner in a Cambridge college. Generous sponsorship provided by Deloitte and Taylor Wessing enables us to offer these dinners at no charge to the attendees.
