From learning to legacy

Imagine setting new records for innovation or sustainability. When we build on learning, legacy is possible.

"When you’re part of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, whether you’re a venue manager, a badminton player or an athlete liaison officer, it's your moment in the light to shine and add your unique thing."

- Mark Lillie, Sports Industry Leader, Deloitte UK

Many people dream of their home city or region hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Those in a Host City Organizing Committee face the complex task of delivering the world’s largest sporting event. When seemingly the whole world turns its eyes upon the host city, the stakes could not be higher.  

“As part of an Organizing Committee, you want to do an incredible job while the world is watching you on this global stage. That possibility is greater if you are able to learn from previous Games editions and build on the success of what has been achieved before.” 

- Becky Galea, Director, Innovation and Ventures, Monitor Deloitte UK ​ 

Delivering the Olympic Games involves thousands of people, each solving complex problems to put on the largest sporting event in the world. Just as athletes build on past performances, future editions of the Olympic Games can build on learnings from previous competitions. Because legacy starts with learning.  

At Deloitte, in partnership with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), we have developed a digital Olympic Games Learning Platform that is intended to systematize and scale access to learnings from the IOC and previous editions of the Olympic Games. We plan for this to become an important information hub, easily accessible for a new Organizing Committee, helping those involved to do their jobs better and dream bigger.  

“As part of an Organizing Committee, you want to do an incredible job while the world is watching you on this global stage.”

“The Olympic Games Learning Platform is being designed to help those delivering the Olympic Games learn the fundamentals, gain insights from previous editions, save time, save money, and crucially to make better decisions at the right time…”

“The Olympic Games Learning Platform is being designed to help those delivering the Olympic Games learn the fundamentals, gain insights from previous editions, save time, save money, and crucially to make better decisions at the right time… ultimately helping enable the uniqueness of a host city, its culture and people, to truly further the Olympic Movement.” 

- Arya Menon, Senior Manager, Deloitte UK   

Supported by this pioneering learning platform, each of those involved in the Olympic Games should be able to see greater possibility and make greater impact. To aspire and work towards setting records for sustainability, inclusion, innovation, and beyond. And to feel proud of a legacy that will inspire future Olympic Games for years to come.   

“It’s about everybody lifting the bar at every point of the Olympic Games. So, when you do a better job, the Olympic Movement gets better, and that’s the baton you pass to someone else.” ​
