The BHBiz Awards 2017
SAVE THIS DATE – FRIDAY MAY 5TH 2017, FROM 7.30 at THE AMEX STADIUM, BRIGHTON
The Directors and Steering Group of the BHBPA have decided to make a change for 2017, and instead of having another BHMB exhibition we shall put on an awards ceremony in May. The assumption is that we shall return to the exhibition the following year; it might become a bi-annual event, alternating with this new one in May.
However, we want ours to be a unique awards ceremony; we want this to be for you, the members, and your employees. We are looking to celebrate those companies and those employees who make up the BHBPA. Look closely at the categories and you will find that they are not the usual ones on such occasions. This will be an event just for BHBPA members and their employees. We ask that you give it some thought and then decide whether your company or someone in your company is worthy of nomination – in which case you must simply make your nominations in 100 words or fewer (entry forms supplied).
We will organise the judging process, set up the celebration evening and make it a special occasion, but we want you to be involved in it, to come along with colleagues on the presentation evening and celebrate the best of the BHBPA businesses, including those irreplaceable workers who always stay in the background and just get on with the job. As usual, we need, and are asking for, your support to make this inaugural BHBiz Awards event a memorable and very successful one.
Ways in which you can support this process –
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"Servecorp have been members of the BHBPA for many years. The BHBPA organise interesting events as well as networking meetings. It is a good opportunity to meet with other local businesses and share views and problems. There is plenty of interaction and synergies between the various companies. Peter does a sterling job keeping the lines of communication open between the local businesses as well as our local council and other authorities."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
