Announcing the BHBiz Awards
Businesses in the Burgess Hill area are being encouraged to enter an awards scheme with a difference.
Held for the first time this year by the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association, the BHBiz Awards is an exciting new event that celebrates the unsung heroes of the business community.
“These Awards are unlike any other in that they focus on what really makes an organisation tick – its people and its values,” said Chairman Paul Shearing. “Importantly, they acknowledge businesses’ contribution to the wider community in which we all operate and on which we depend.”
The BHBiz Awards, to be held on Friday May 5 at the Amex Stadium, Brighton, follow on from the runaway success of the well-established annual Burgess Hill Means Business exhibition and networking event, which will now be held every other year, alternating with the Awards.
Paul continued “We wanted something new and exciting to offer BHBPA members in 2017 and it had to engage with every business, regardless of size, just as previous events had done. It also had to provide the same excellent networking opportunity that Burgess Hill Means Business has become famous for. Initial response to the Awards from members would indicate that BHBiz is just that event!”
A committee of five is responsible for staging the Awards, which are now open for nominations in eight categories:
• Winning Workplace
• Eco Champion
• Community Charity Champion
• Bright Star
• Invaluable Star
• Rising Star and
• Risen Star
Judges include the Mayor of Burgess Hill, Cllr Jacqui Landriani and, as in previous years, support will be given to the Association’s nominated charity, St Peter & St James Hospice.
