Recent reports in the media show that almost £400m worth of credit applications for SMEs in the South East were rejected during the first half of 2015, so the relevance of alternative sources of finance has never been greater. These innovative types of funding options will be discussed by industry experts at our brand new panel event which is taking place on 4th February at the Hawth Theatre in Crawley.
Click here to book your place! The highly impressive panel of alternative funders and industry experts includes Marcus Stuttard, Head of AIM and UK primary markets at the London Stock Exchange and funding expert Andy Davis – Author of “Beyond the banks” & former Financial Times journalist and Editor of FT Weekend. Do get in touch with Lucy on 01903 234094 if you need any more details.

"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. "
"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."
"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. "
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
