Local as well as global (BHBPA Director Susan Fleet’s take on our speaker)
Thanks again to Jon Lavelle, from Burgess Hill, who ran an inspirational and thought provoking session for the BHBPA last week on a subject that relates to us all, both in business and in our personal lives – ‘Negotiation Skills’.
Whilst Jon has many years of experience training people across the world and in large organisations in negotiation, his goal for the next few years is to support more local businesses, particularly in East and West Sussex.
Whether you are a 1-man or 1-woman operation, whether you run a small team or an SME, we can all learn valuable negotiation skills that can either earn us or save us money. The principles of negotiation apply regardless of the size or nature of the deal.
Please reach out to Jon if you are interested in him supporting your local business, no matter how large or small, public or private, and regardless of industry.

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"“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! ” "
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
