WHO WE ARE
Lucy Bennett-Baggs (Founder & CEO of Just Challenge) formally worked at HSBC for 7 years in Sponsorship, Marketing and Events. Lucy felt the world of sponsorship and events was changing – brands needed purpose and their people wanted real and meaningful experiences. Sponsorship alone couldn’t fulfil this.
Whilst working at HSBC, Lucy organised major challenges across the Sahara Desert and the Gobi Desert for their employees, raising over 500,000 USD for charity. Lucy passionately felt more brands could benefit from such experiences. In 2017, Just Challenge was born. Her vision was to create a platform for clients to drive employee engagement, corporate social responsibility, client relationships and develop leaders in a truly unique way.
Just Challenge now works with some of the world’s leading corporates, charities and sports stars to deliver meaningful challenges that raise a huge amount of money for charity. We believe the world is changing – and that people want to take part in experiences that they remember for the rest of their lives. Just Challenge provides brands with the opportunity to do this for their people – and subsequently deliver real business value with purpose.
WHAT WE DO
We deliver money can’t buy experiences. Our clients are some of the largest corporates in the world and consequently, we’ve developed a deep understanding of the needs of their functions – from legal and insurance, to CSR and HR. We understand what makes the most fantastic experience whilst focusing on corporate objectives and delivering real business value.
We work with some of the world’s leading organisations – from HSBC and Barclays, to AIG, KPMG and the Arsenal Football Club (to name a few). We understand that the world of corporate engagement is changing and we’re here to provide a solution.
OUR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK
Just Challenge has the most incredible global network – with clients and participants representing 50+ nationalities. We operate in 40 countries globally and as a result, have developed the most fantastic relationships around the world. Furthermore, we have worked with some of the world’s leading sports stars and ambassadors – including Brian O’Driscoll, Bryan Habana, Sean Fitzpatrick, Michael Johnson, Kenton Cool, Annabelle Bond and Michael Vaughan.
Just Challenge employs some of the world’s most experienced and well connected employees to service our clients and lead our challenges, with health and safety at the core of everything we do. We have offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and London, with our Operations led out of New Zealand to ensure we are best in class globally.
