Thank you, BHBPA, for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself and my business to members …
My Story in the UK started in 2002 when I decided to leave my homeland in search of an environment in which I could build a stable future for myself and my family.
Having seen one of my friends start from scratch and achieve great success by establishing a reputable commercial cleaning company, I decided to enter the cleaning industry with only £500 as that was the only capital I could afford at that time.
Starting as a self employed commercial and domestic cleaner was initially a challenge to find work and most of my jobs were obtained through the management cleaning companies which charge a monthly charge for finding cleaning contracts. Over the years I had managed to get enough contracts to allow me to employ another person.
I had also managed to make the effort to go to Uni and got a degree in Business Management in 2012. It complemented my other University degree in Economics very well. I liked the theory I learnt about managing people and I knew that one day I would have the chance to practise and decide for myself what works best.
Recently I have set up my own company Deep Serv Mid Sussex Ltd, part of the Deep Serv Group and all my cleaning contracts have been bought by the company.
I am very proud to still offer cleaning services to my first ever commercial client, The Cuckfield Medical Centre which is now a 17-year-old contract. Most of my other contracts are over 7 years old.
All our members of staff are fully trained, and I look after them as they are my most valuable asset. I believe that the most important aspect of the business is to build our reputation and ensure that the client will have full confidence in us looking after their premises.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be more than happy to offer my advice on any aspect of achieving and maintaining a high standard of cleaning of your commercial premises.
"“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.”"
"“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”"
"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. "
"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."
