Emily Darnell & Esther Dawson are very proud to announce that the Sussex EA/PA Network will be four years old next month and although they’ve had a quieter period over the last year, they are kick-starting their regular quarterly meetings with a birthday party at Ridgeview Wine Estate on Tuesday 16th July from 5.30pm until 7.30pm.
Ridgeview have had a fantastic 2019 so far, winning the World’s Best Winemaker Award at the International Wine & Spirits Competition at the end of 2018 and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall paying them a visit to congratulate them on that award, just four weeks ago. As it happens, The Duchess grew up in Plumpton and went to school in Ditchling!
Therefore, Sussex PA Network would like to invite EAs, PAs & Office Managers to a Garden Party in the vineyard to help celebrate their birthday and to enjoy the beautiful surroundings in the South Downs National Park.
There will be wine, soft drinks and nibbles to enjoy in the wine garden (weather permitting, we’ll be in our tasting room if the sunshine we order, doesn’t arrive) Esther will also conduct a tour of the vineyard & winery for those who haven’t visited before.
2020 is going to be a big year for the network and we hope you can join us to socialise and discuss our plans for the future. They look forward to you coming along to help celebrate our birthday and please forward this newsletter onto any other PAs, EAs or Office Managers who you think might be interested in coming along.

"“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.”"
"“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! ” "
"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. "
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
