E-mpower.IT Support Girl Power on the Rugby Pitch!
Following on from becoming a sponsor of Burgess Hill Rugby Football Club in March 2017, Burgess Hill based e-mpower.IT who offer Managed IT Services and IT Support to growing businesses in the south east, thought it would be good idea to take part in one of the training sessions, not with the men but; the Ladies Rugby Team – also known as the Black Widows.
E-mpower.IT’s Marketing Manager, Jo Carver and the Owner/Director’s wife, Elaine Lokhandvala headed on down to Burgess Hill rugby pitch for the training session where they also bumped into regular attendee Tamara Roberts from Ridgeview. Full of anxiety and anticipation Elaine and Jo weren’t sure quite what to expect, but, none the less got stuck into the training which included mauls, pad work, ball work and finished with a quick game of tag rugby at the end. When asked “why they wanted to attend?” Jo Carver advised, “As a sponsor of BHRFC we wanted to show some ‘active support’, what better way to do this than participate in a rugby training session along with the boss’s wife! It was a chance to show our support as well as help promote the Black Widows.” She continued by saying “The training session was fun and gave us a flavor of what was involved. The girls are a friendly, social bunch and if you are looking for something different and fun to do which also helps you to get fit, then women’s rugby could be for you.” Meanwhile, owner/Director Jaffer Lokhandvala, sat sensibly at a distance; taking photos from the sidelines – to view them visit our blog http://e-mpower.it/great-it-support-for-growing-businesses-it-firm-support-bhrfc/

"“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.”"
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"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. "
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
