End of the Summer of Sport – Start of Autumn of Action


For the GFT London team, the Olympics & Paralympics ended as they began, with a parade past the office. The successful TeamGB and ParalympicsGB athletes followed in the footsteps of the Olympic torch over a month earlier, with a victory parade of 20 floats for medal winners on Monday.

As the parade passed by St Paul’s within earshot and sight of the office, we were able to have one last moment of our Olympic summer in London. Many people in the office have managed to get to an event over the two Games or watched something inspiring on television. It has truly been an event of which we can all be proud.

We’re now turning our attention to plans for a busy autumn. Key themes are expected to be the impact of regulation on the financial sector; how to get the best out of Big Data; the way mobile technology is changing banking; and we have a survey in the pipeline on the impact of social media on banking. Watch this space!

GFT will also be heavily involved in the CODE_n13 contest. This year the focus is on new solutions for the transition to sustainable energy. See www.code-n.org for more information, or if you would like to talk to GFT about innovation, contact us via email.
