SEC Interiors Winter Networking Event 2017

Sun, Ski Slalom & Ski-Doo at Winter Networking Event



SEC Interiors held its seventh successful Winter Networking Event in March at the popular Chamonix Ski Resort, with attendees from the commercial property industry.


The event was held over two weekends in March, with the faster skiiers of our associate network attending on the first weekend. They were hosted by Russell Coleman (Project Director) and Steve Watts (Managing Director).


Weekend 1

Weekend 1 started in the evening of Friday 10th and the attendees were immediately whisked off for a mystery tour from the airport. Taken from Geneva they entered the Mont Blanc tunnel and went through to Italy. At the bottom of a piste in Courmayeur the group was greeted by a fleet of ski-doos and taken to the Maison Vieille restaurant, one of the top 50 restaurants in Courmayuer.


Day 1 on the slopes involved the attendees finding their ski legs, cruising Le Tour.


After ski legs were found, Day 2 involved skiing around Grands Montets including off-piste skiing around Le Lavancher.


Day 3 was an all new day for 2017. The group was split into two groups of 4 taken off for instruction and tuition to hone their skills, followed by slalom tuition. A piste was hired in Chamonix whereby the two teams would go head to head in a special slalom race, both individual timed and team.


Guest winner was Mark Bunting of Aitchison Raffety, St Albans.

Weekend 2

Weekend 2 saw a slightly slower pace, commencing on Friday 17th March.


After a quiet meal in the evening, Day 1 was the day for finding ski legs taking in and cruising Le Tour.


Day 2 saw the team take in Courmayeur through the Mont Blanc tunnel in Italy, before being treated to the ski-doo trip up the mountain to the now popular Maison Vieille restaurant.


Day 3 was the new event day for the Weekend 2 skiiers. This time in one group, they all received tuition and guidance on slalom racing.


Tim Howlings of Brasier Freeth Watford won the prize as the fastest skiier; although this jubilation was quickly thwarted by the realisation that his passport had been misplaced. Cue a trip to Bern in Switzerland to get a replacement before travelling home a day later.

Russell Coleman and the team from SEC Interiors would like to thank all those that took time out of the busy schedule to attend the event. It was a thoroughly successful Winter Networking Event with 2018's plans already in the making.
