A series of awareness boot-camps across Sussex will be held in October to address the many questions businesses are asking. We’ll have on hand experts from a variety of specialist fields to answer your questions. The dates for these workshops will be announced soon across our website, social media and newsletters.
ALL Business Brexit Awareness Boot-Camp events are open to ALL businesses and free to attend. These events will be a collaborative approach with the Local Enterprise Partnerships, County, District and Borough Councils, Town Chambers, other business organisations, local professional firms and experts.
Why is this needed?
The British Chambers of Commerce network survey of over 1,500 firms from across the country, carried out in July, found that two-fifths (41%) of UK businesses have not done a Brexit risk assessment. Those that trade internationally (63%) are far more likely to have carried out a risk assessment on the impact of Brexit to their business than their counterparts that trade in the UK only (35%).

"“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 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! ” "
"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."
"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."
