Awards are good for business… so get nominating for BHBiz
You probably know that Hollywood Awards Season is well under way, but you should be aware that Burgess Hill is gearing up for its very own awards evening.
Burgess Hill Business Parks Association (BHBPA) has announced its inaugural BHBiz Awards, which will be held on 5 May at the Brighton Amex. There’s been a lot of interest and the evening is shaping up to be a fabulous evening of fun, friendly networking that will recognise people and businesses that we all admire in our community.
Nominations opened two weeks ago, and the BHBPA is looking for as many people as possible to throw their hat in the ring, or to put someone else forward.
If you need convincing, the Oscars are a useful reminder that there are numerous soft and hard benefits to entering and/or winning awards.
But that’s La La Land… what’s it got to do with the real world? Well, although BHBiz might not have the same instant recognition (and don’t expect a $200,000 nominee gift bag, including personalised M&Ms), they represent a fantastic opportunity to boost business and get your name out there.
The application process has been designed to be as simple and efficient as possible. It only takes minutes to enter, and yet the payoff could potentially be seriously beneficial.
Even if your company is a sponsor, why not consider entering one or more of the other categories?
If your business or a colleague has done something impressive – why not shout about it? Our judges want to find people who truly deserve each award, so no application will go to waste.
"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."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“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”"
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
