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.

"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."
"“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.”"
"“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.""
"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. "
