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."
"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."
"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. "
"“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.""
