Request for volunteers for Speed Networking at The Burgess Hill Academy 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 7th March 2019. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
"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."
"“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”"
"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."
