Popular Broadcaster Jennie Bond to Host BHBiz Awards
Save the Date in Your Diary – 10 May 2019
Following the enormous success of our first BHBiz Awards and the keenly awaited second in May, we’re delighted to announce the host for the evening, Jennie Bond.
Broadcaster and journalist Jennie Bond appears regularly on a wide range of television and radio programmes – from light entertainment to documentaries.
As the BBC’s Royal Correspondent during 14 of the most turbulent years the monarchy has endured, Jennie was at the heart of events that made headlines around the world: from the fairy-tale marriages to the adultery, the divorces and the deaths.
She’s known to young and old for her exploits in the jungle of ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here when she was buried in a coffin full of rats and had to eat a variety of live insects.
Since then she has become a presenter on two of the BBC’s most popular shows: Cash in the Attic, and Rip Off Britain. She also presented the highly successful BBC2 series Great British Menu.
Other projects include: Royals at War, Masterchef, Too Many Cooks, Stars in the Fast Cars, The Big Call and Jennie’s own personal account of her time as a royal correspondent in a three-part documentary series for Channel Five, Jennie Bond’s Royals.
She began her career in journalism after graduating from Warwick University in 1972. She worked on local papers as a reporter for five years before joining BBC Radio News. During the next few years she gained a thorough grounding in radio news, editing the main bulletins. She also worked as a producer on current affairs shows, including the very popular Woman’s Hour, and in light entertainment, with Noel Edmonds.
Our special Awards Night will be held at the American Express Community Stadium on May 10th 2019 and will be another glittering evening with opportunities for exceptional networking too. It will include a Ridgeview drinks reception, red carpet arrival, three-course dinner with coffee, complimentary on-site parking, professional MC, entertainment and the presentation of the 12 BHBiz Awards.
"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.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"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”"
