As a business owner in Haywards Heath I wanted to ensure that I was networking with like-minded business owners not only to promote my business but to collaborate, share and support each other. The HHBA is a great place to come once a month for a catch-up and their other events offer a chance to dig deeper into specific areas such as marketing, managing staff or GDPR. I really love the fact that each month there is an opportunity for a member to share their expertise with other members and have found these events very informative and useful. Great people, supportive and collaborative.
Having been involved with HHDBA as it then was, I was in right from the start and on the steering group that gave life to what is now HHBA. There is much of interest available on the website but what I value most is the personal contact as well as the information gained at the evening networking drinks and other events held throughout the year, I particularly enjoyed the breakfast meetings. I would encourage any business in the area to join HHBA as it is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn about their businesses which of course can have benefits for everyone.
I have been a member of HHBA for some years now. As a small business owner it offers me networking, collaboration opportunities and a chance to learn from others be it formally through an Ask the Expert session or just chewing the fat with a fellow member over a glass of something. Definitely worth the membership fee.
Since joining the HHBA a few years ago, I can only describe our experience as positive: HHBA are a proactive organisation and host several varied events throughout the year, suitable for all types of businesses including networking and social events. The former allow us to network with like-minded businesses and the latter are fun events which also serve as an excellent networking platform. This is apart from numerous training events. Membership has also helped to raise our profile in the region and through the various events given us access to clients and those that refer work. In short membership is a good investment and one we would recommend.
I joined HHBA to meet new businesses and contacts in a relaxed environment. The HHBA has a diverse range of friendly members who I like to do business with.
The HHBA is an informal and thriving business networking group in Haywards Heath. From the moment I joined the group I was made to feel welcome and introductions were made to help start the networking off positively. I have made some great connections and experienced some fantastic workshops which have really helped my business to grow.
I have been a member of the HHBA for over a year now and have found it to be a great introduction to the Haywards Heath business community and a support to my new business. The team and all the members made me feel very welcome on joining and when I attended my first HHBA event lots of other members came over to introduce themselves and make me feel comfortable which was greatly appreciated when walking into a room where I knew absolutely no one! I’ve never seen anyone standing on their own at the events and the HHBA committee and the members have ensured that there is a very inclusive atmosphere. The weekly newsletter is the perfect size and format to find out what is going on with other members, business news and events in the local area and ensures that we are all kept “in the know”. HHBA’s business directory is a great resource when looking for local services and there is added reassurance of the testimonials on there from other members. 2020 calendar includes a number of panel discussions across a range of topics which is invaluable to business owners and a great opportunity to have a fresh look at the different areas of our business’ and ensure we are up to date on all the things we are ultimately responsible for, something which is always difficult to do when running the business day to day. In short: I believe the HHBA is a great organisation to join for business owners in the local area. There is a huge amount of support both in terms of networking and information to help you in running and growing your business. Highly recommended!!
