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 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."
"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."
"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.
"“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! ” "
