The organising committee met again last week to discuss latest plans for the event on May 4th at The King’s Centre.
We shall have two sessions of CPR and use of defibrillators given by Garry Perkins of Sussex First Aid Courses in a room off the main hall, probably at 12 o’clock and 1.30pm to which you will be able to sign up beforehand. There will be some hands-on training given at these. We shall allow just two people per company to attend these presentations as they may prove very popular.
The event will be officially opened by the Leader of WSCC, Louise Goldsmith, and other dignitaries attending will be Garry Wall, leader of MSDC and Jacqui Landriani, the Mayor of Burgess Hill.
Among other plans it was decided that, in this Centenary Year of the first legislation allowing some women to vote, we should focus on Women in Business at this year’s exhibition. We shall invite three speakers and will allow people to sign up beforehand to attend these presentations in a smaller room off the main exhibition hall.
There will be a place for stand holders to access tea and coffee all day. The cafe at TKC will be providing food in the form of baguettes and sandwiches which can be purchased for lunch.
If you are a stand holder at this event on May 4th, please make sure that you …
Many thanks – we are looking forward to a great event on Friday May 4th
"“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! ” "
"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.
"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. "
"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."
