London 2012

Inspiring performance for the Olympic and Paralympic Games

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will go down in history as one of the most spectacular Games the world has ever witnessed.

More than 800 Deloitte UK professionals made a contribution to the Games – a total of over 750,000 hours of expertise. Deloitte UK provided secondees into critical delivery roles and handled more than 200 advisory engagements—from helping to establish a procurement function that sourced 1.8 million pieces of sporting equipment valued at US$1.2 billion in goods and services, to creating the program to test operational readiness of the world's largest-ever peacetime event.

As challenges go, this was about the biggest in Deloitte's history, marked not only by the ultimate immovable deadline and a relentless delivery program, but also by significant budget pressure and intensive media scrutiny. It was the kind of challenge Deloitte people thrive on—and the ultimate stage on which to showcase their expertise.

The staging of the Games is possibly the most complex project that London will ever undertake. Deloitte's experience at providing solutions to its clients' most complex issues was without doubt a valuable addition to the London 2012 team."
