News: How well are you managing risk?

Posted on 11th January 2020

Every business has to try to manage the truly myriad of things that have the potential to go wrong. Sometimes this means trying to reduce the likelihood of problem and sometimes being ready to react effectively. Rarely does it mean sticking our heads in the sand!

The next BHBPA event is a breakfast meeting led by Martin Coppard of Sutton Winson on 11th February. Martin is a Risk Management expert, and anyone who leads on such issues within member firms might benefit by attending. Click here for the event.

The meeting will be meeting at Greenacre Court, Station Road, RH15 9DS and hosted by MyPTHub Ltd one of our newest members from 8am for breakfast. MyPTHub is a very young and innovative business who provide App services for personal trainers across the globe. I suggest drivers park at either Waitrose or MacDonald’s carparks.

"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."

"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 Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"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. "

"“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.”"
