Adam Brown was recently awarded the RICS 2011 London Student Award from Kingston University for his outstanding work on the BSc Hons Building Surveying course. Adam was cordially invited to attend the awards ceremony and reception on the 2nd March 2011 at the RICS Head Office in Parliament Square, London. The event was attended by winners, industry representatives and university ambassadors from the seven London partner universities of which Kingston is one. The evening was hosted by Linda Winstanley (Cushman & Wakefield) the Chair of RICS London and the awards were presented by Robert Peto (DTZ) the RICS President. Adam was honoured to be representing Kingston University with the added reward of getting to meet the RICS President and other leading industry professionals, in particular Jeremy Helsby CEO of Savills. Furthermore, Adam was accompanied to the Awards by Stephanie Marsh and the Head of School, Professor Sarah Sayce. There were a number of inspirational speeches with the chance to mingle and ask questions with everyone afterwards in a more relaxed atmosphere. The event really portrayed Kingston and the other universities in a good light, with students getting real recognition from a leading institution in the built environment, a great day was had by all.
