Just a reminder that the EGBA are organising their 2nd annual Business Lecture on 12th October at Chequer Mead, which this year will be delivered by Kevin Byrne, the CEO of Checkatrade.com.
It should be a fascinating evening as Kevin founded the Checkatrade concept in 1998 and has won many Business Awards. Checkatrade now employees around 235 team members and generates around £2.7 billion a year for the 19,000+ trades and services that have put their trust in him to generate them more work and a greater public profile.
The evening will also present the opportunity to network both before and after the lecture. While the lecture will start at 19.00 the bar and coffee shop will be open from 6pm; so come early, have a drink, and enjoy and benefit from networking with other local business people.
Seats can be booked through the Chequer Mead box office on 01342 30200. The cost is just £15.00

"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."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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."
