Hamptons International to Present at KidZania London’s International Women’s Day
Leading residential estate agent Hamptons International will mark International Women’s Day by hosting a talk at KidZania London’s first ever International Women’s Fair. Running from 8th – 10th March 2017, the fair will showcase inspirational talks from successful women who hold senior positions in their industry. Hamptons International’s Head of London Sales, Mary Beeton, will kick off proceedings on the first day.
Mary, who has worked at Hamptons for 14 years and has spent 22 years in the industry, will share her wisdom about her experiences as a woman working in a male-dominated industry. Mary is also a mum of three boys aged four, seven and nine. With KidZania’s statistics revealing that ‘girls are still reserved about what they feel are male-dominated industries’, Mary’s day-in-the-life talk will set out to inspire girls about how to climb the career ladder regardless of industry. International Women’s Day is a cause very close to Hamptons International on account of the strong female leadership that is at the beating heart of both Hamptons and its parent company Countrywide. With Lesley Cairns as the recently appointed Managing Director of Hamptons International, Alison Platt as Countrywide’s CEO and Sam Tyrer as Managing Director for Retail and London, the business has a strong female-focused leadership team. In fact Hamptons International’s entire workforce is made up of 64 % of woman.
Lesley Cairns, Managing Director of Hamptons International, says: ‘“Having been in partnership with KidZania for over a year now, we are thrilled to be involved with an event which resonates so deeply with our people. Mary is the perfect choice to present to the children her perspective of climbing the career ladder thanks to her vast experience, wherein she started off in agency and progressed to her current position as Head of London Sales Mary is a strong role model for children that it possible to climb to a leadership position in our industry, regardless of gender...”
Eddie Kemsley, CEO KidZania London, says: “We are delighted that Mary Beeton will be joining our panel of inspirational women at our first ever International Women’s Day Fair at KidZania London. Our aim is to inspire young girls to reach their full potential in a series of talks over three days. Mary is an example of a woman who has challenged gender stereotypes to become successful in her chosen field. We hope the girls attending the Fair will leave feeling inspired, motivated and determined.”
