Accountants take to the slopes to strike up new connections

Accountants from award-winning firm, Milsted Langdon, have taken a trip to the beautiful snow-filled slopes of Morzine in France to strengthen their relationships with their local business connections.

For the second year in a row, Partners Rachael Verinder, Rachel Hotham (pictured) and Simon Rowe organised a trip to the continent as a way of breaking the usual pattern of networking events. 

The four-day excursion saw skiers of varying ability from local firms take on the French slopes alongside the team of Partners from Milsted Langdon.

As well as the skiing, the guests also enjoyed dinners together, which was a great opportunity to network in an informal environment and make new connections. 

Commenting on the trip, one guest said: “It was a great group of people, superbly organised and an absolute giggle from start to finish!

“I do have the benefit of having generated some great memories over the last four days, having caught up with some existing business contacts and connected with some extremely likeable and interesting new ones. It couldn’t have been a better trip – the weather, food and company were all outstanding.”

Speaking about the success of the trip, Rachel said: “It was an excellent experience to really get to know some of our business contacts on a more personal level and cement the relationships that we’ve built up over a number of years.

“Last year’s event was really successful and this year just confirmed what a winning approach this is. By thinking outside the box, we have managed to strengthen our connections and enjoy a hobby that we are all passionate about.”

Milsted Langdon is no stranger to hosting quirky events, having hosted several odd and exciting outings for clients and its network of professional contacts to enjoy in recent years, including organising a ladies’ clay shooting and archery day in Somerset this week, which was extremely popular and well attended.
