A team from Hamptons International has taken home three prizes at the annual Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) Ski Challenge event in Courmayeur, Italy (29 January – 31 January). Now in its 28th year, the win for Hamptons represents the agency’s fourth consecutive year of bringing home silverware.
The event, which began as a small gathering of entrepreneurial surveyors and clients with a love of skiing, aims to provide a platform for the industry to build new business relationships. Today it is one of the commercial property industry’s leading events in the diary. Over 200 delegates from some of the largest UK property companies attended this years’ event.
The three day event comprised a Business Forum, with high profile keynote speakers – including Sir Edward Lister, the deputy mayor of London and Tom Bloxham MBE, chairman of Urban Splash. In addition there were a number of networking opportunities and a series of ski and snowboarding races.
Luke Walsby, Associate at Hamptons International, Chiswick; James Wardle, Director at Hamptons International, Knightsbridge; and Sophie Wellesley-Wood, Graduate Surveyor in Hamptons International’s Land team took home the Mixed Gender Cup after being crowned the fastest mixed gender team to complete the slalom event in a time of 55.84.
Sophie Wellesley–Wood also scooped two further individual prizes; fastest female in an commendable time of 00:19.37 as well as Most Stylish Descendant.
Member of the winning team, Sophie Wellesley-Wood, commented: “Knowing Hamptons’ previous success at the LSH Ski Challenge, I was thrilled to compete for the team. It is my first year attending the event and the pressure was on as we were faced with tricky conditions and some tough competition. To come away with as many trophies as we did felt like a real achievement. The event proved the ideal environment to network with other property professionals and source fresh business opportunities. I look forward to making it an annual date in the diary!”
