Deloitte and the British Paralympic Association

World-class support for a world-class team

In our tenth year of working in partnership with the British Paralympic Association, Deloitte continue to make a sizeable impact on disability sport from grassroots to elite level. In the build-up to Rio 2016, through the provision of world-class services, we continue that momentum.

In 2013, Deloitte were asked to help create the ‘best prepared’ ParalympicsGB team ever, to provide exceptional support to British athletes and senior staff. A highly-skilled team, with Olympic and Paralympic experience, were assembled to support the upskilling of ParalympicsGB staff ahead of Rio 2016, as well as providing critical support on the ground at Games time.

“The BPA and Deloitte are standing shoulder to shoulder with one thing in mind - creating the best prepared team for the Games.”

The Deloitte Team

Sarah Starkie, Consulting

We began the development journey almost three years ago and the impact is clear; our team’s breadth of experience in building leadership development programmes has equipped each individual with the skills to help them be more confident in delivering their roles. Without a doubt we have helped deliver the ‘best prepared’ team for the Games.

Charlotte Thompson, Risk Advisory

The British Paralympic Association believes that this will be the most competitive games to date - as well as the most challenging Games environment ever. My role in Rio will be to help assess, mitigate and manage risks across the entire Delegation from minor issues to major incidents, enabling the Senior Leadership Team to remain focused on the job in hand - ensuring athletes can perform on this world stage to the best of their ability. This is likely to be a demanding and dynamic role in which I will need to remain focused, pragmatic, adaptable and efficient.

Janice O’Neill, Consulting

Having been involved in supporting the provision of security for the London 2012 Games when I was in the Army, I never thought I would have the opportunity to help prepare the teams before the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. But to see the sum of our work contributing to world-beating performances on the field of play, will be a real privilege.
