Graysons at Wakehurst joined the HHBA at the beginning of 2019 and have made some fantastic new connections through the association. We were lucky enough to showcase Wakehurst to it’s members in September at a lovely sunny afternoon tea on the lawns. Since joining we have found a local printing company who has been great at supplying us with marketing material and business cards. We have also made connections with a wedding celebrant who we are now recommending to our wedding couples. The events that the HHBA put on are always very well organised by Sue and well attended. The team at HHBA are great at introducing us to new contacts to help with our business. We look forward to continuing our membership in 2020 and meeting new people.
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.
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!!
I met HBAA Chair Clare by chance just before this Christmas and she immediately helped me to potentially spread the word about Tickerage Wines by putting me in contact with a local hotel. I was so impressed by her pro-active approach that I am now one of your new members and enjoyed my inaugural’s New Year Networking event. I look forward to getting to know members this year and hopefully see you at our proposed Vineyard and Winery Summer HHBA event!
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.
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.
I have been a member of HHBA for just over a year. It is a very proactive, enlightening and friendly group. The monthly evening networking events are just getting better and better. As a sole worker, it also creates the opportunity for me to get out and mix with local businesses face to face...rather than just being tied to the office! Thank you for that!
I’ve only attended a couple of HHBA events so far but have been struck by the energy of the group and how easy it’s been to meet people. You don’t need to be a ‘professional’ networker to get a lot out of it.
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.
