News: Why You Should Nominate Someone

Posted on 31st January 2017

Awards are good for business… so get nominating for BHBiz

 

You probably know that Hollywood Awards Season is well under way, but you should be aware that Burgess Hill is gearing up for its very own awards evening.

 

Burgess Hill Business Parks Association (BHBPA) has announced its inaugural BHBiz Awards, which will be held on 5 May at the Brighton Amex. There’s been a lot of interest and the evening is shaping up to be a fabulous evening of fun, friendly networking that will recognise people and businesses that we all admire in our community.

 

Nominations opened two weeks ago, and the BHBPA is looking for as many people as possible to throw their hat in the ring, or to put someone else forward.

 

If you need convincing, the Oscars are a useful reminder that there are numerous soft and hard benefits to entering and/or winning awards.

 

But that’s La La Land… what’s it got to do with the real world? Well, although BHBiz might not have the same instant recognition (and don’t expect a $200,000 nominee gift bag, including personalised M&Ms), they represent a fantastic opportunity to boost business and get your name out there.

 

The application process has been designed to be as simple and efficient as possible. It only takes minutes to enter, and yet the payoff could potentially be seriously beneficial.

 

Even if your company is a sponsor, why not consider entering one or more of the other categories?

 

If your business or a colleague has done something impressive – why not shout about it? Our judges want to find people who truly deserve each award, so no application will go to waste.

Testimonials

"“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.""

Peter Hook, Manager
(Computer Systems Engineers)

"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."

Steve Mooney

"“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.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"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."
