137-Paralympic Dinner1200x798
On Saturday 16 July the winning four teams from the Impact Awards were given an opportunity to see-off the ParalympicsGB athletes in style at the Deloitte sponsored Team Launch. The Impact Awards celebrates employees that make an impact that matters—for clients, for our people, and for society.

Attended by almost all of the 300+ athletes selected to compete in Rio, the event was a chance to share the final stage of the athlete’s journey before they enter their pre-Games preparation camps.

Lead partner for the firm’s British Paralympics Association (BPA) relationship, Simon Wakefield, shared the stage with Paralympian Ade Adepitan, The Last Leg’s Adam Hills and the BPA’s Chef de Mission for Rio 2016, Penny Briscoe, to highlight’s Deloitte’s impact in helping each athlete be ‘best prepared’ for the Games.

Jeremy Thomas, from our Leeds’ office summed the event up by saying: “Humbling, inspiring, and motivating – furthering my passion for what we do as a firm and the impact we can make. I will be following the Paralympics with a keen eye!”
