The gala evening for the BHBiz Awards is drawing ever nearer and ticket sales have risen to over 300 as of yesterday. Even Esther Dawson, the committee member in charge of sales, who was always optimistic about numbers attending, is surprised and delighted at the number of companies who have taken an interest and involved themselves in the event.
Now the judges’ work has finished and their decisions have been made. The shortlists were published yesterday and can be seen here in an article below or on the website. The judges, Gordon Reay, Economic Development Advisor at MSDC, Jacqui Landriani, the current Town Mayor of Burgess Hill and Grant Ashley, until recently MD of ILG, have done a fantastic job for the BHBPA. They told us how impressed they were with the number and quality of submissions for the awards.
For those many who submitted a nomination but did not get to be shortlisted, I can only offer our thanks that you took the time and effort to join in with this new venture and support the BHBPA. No doubt there will be another chance to show your appreciation of a colleague or company in the future.
We hope to see you there on FRIDAY 5th MAY 2017, from 6.15 at The Amex Stadium, Brighton.
It promises to be an excellent evening of good company, good food, some Ridgeview wine and lovely surroundings, with the chance to celebrate some of those terrific people who work so well among us every day. It will, above all, be fun, and show exactly what the BHBPA is about. The two bars will be open all evening from 6.15 until late. Come and join us in celebrating the best of business in Mid Sussex. Tickets still available from firstname.lastname@example.org
"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.
"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."
"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 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."
