Deloitte in the Midlands
Foreword by Pauline Biddle
The Midlands continues to go from strength-to-strength.
Identified as the most entrepreneurial city outside of the capital, Birmingham has now surpassed London to become the country’s leading city for business growth.
In the East, cities such as Nottingham, Derby and Leicester are witnessing record numbers of new start-ups showing that as a region we are not only successfully attracting big, global businesses to open new headquarters and facilities here, but also continuing to foster some of the UK’s most forward-thinking and innovative companies.
In addition, the region is also starting to gain the recognition and reputation that it deserves not just from across the UK and Europe, but on an international scale. Whether that is as a first-class destination for tourists; attracting the best and the brightest talent; or enticing investors.
At Deloitte in the Midlands we also continue to thrive, and are proud to have played our part in some of the region’s most significant and momentous development and deals. Working alongside many of the key cultural and business institutions, we have also seen first-hand how opportunity can be realised.
Ultimately however we are successful because of our people, and our vision to attract, retain and support talent in the business continues apace. We also, as part of our national One Million Futures programme, continue in our efforts to support those across the region facing the greatest challenges. Our hope, that by raising aspirations and expanding skills, we can impact on future generations and leaders for many years to come.
