'The legacy foundations are laid. But the hard work is still to come.' David Cameron, Beyond 2012, March 2012.

In March David Cameron identified securing the benefits of the 2012 Olympics as both ‘our biggest challenge’ and ‘our greatest opportunity’.

At this event you will hear from some of those involved with delivering and researching the legacy and gain an understanding of the challenges and opportunities:

  • Are there gaps between what is expected and what is planned to be delivered?
  • What are the objectives of the different legacy stakeholders?
  • How do the organisations involved in the delivery fit together.
  • At what stage are the legacy plans and how advanced is each?

You will also be able to contribute to the debate about how the many legacy initiatives work together and how the lasting benefits from the Olympics might be realised.

Leave with insights into what opportunities there might be for consultants and businesses to contribute to, or to benefit from, the legacy of the 2012 Olympics.

Who should attend?

Consultants, owners and managers interested in seeing the 2012 Olympics deliver a successful legacy and understanding its benefits.

And take away: A copy of the white paper ‘Mind the Gap: Looking after the Olympic Legacy’ which looks at the commitments that were originally made about the legacy, what might be reasonably expected to left behind and what more might be done to bolster the legacy outcomes delivered.
