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.
"“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.""
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"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. "
