People are at the heart of firms in every part of the UK. Across the country, Chamber member firms are looking at how they address their skills needs during an important time of transition and change.
This poll seeks to understand how skills shortages, Brexit, and the introduction of changes – such as the Apprenticeship Levy and a higher National Living Wage – are impacting on your organisation. The results will help the British Chambers of Commerce and Sussex Chamber to lobby senior politicians and opinion-formers.
Five minutes of your time gives your Chamber – and the British Chambers of Commerce team at Westminster – the real-world business input we need in order to stand up for your interests.
I hope you’ll add your voice – we will ensure it is heard.
Thank you in advance for your support.

"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 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. "
"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. "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
