Request for volunteers for Speed Networking at The Burgess Hill Academy. See Flyer here
Once again in order to assist our Year 9 students in choosing their GCSE options, the Academy will be hosting a Speed Networking Event on Thursday 8th March 2018. The event will start with a 30 minute networking breakfast at 8.15am, followed by two one hour sessions 8.50am to 9.50am and 9.50am to 10.50am.
Students will be in groups of 3/4 and they will spend 5 minutes asking questions of the volunteers followed by 5 minutes finding out about the volunteers’ job. During each hour long session, I would anticipate that all volunteers will talk to at least 5 groups of students.
I am hoping that you or someone else in your organisation will be able to spare some time to come along and assist in this event. Students really do find it very useful to find out about different jobs and the qualifications needed to get there. If you are able to assist, please contact me at email@example.com.

"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."
"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."
"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. "
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
