Engine Shed have announced a brand new collaboration as Deloitte, the professional services and technology consultancy firm, has signed to up to become Engine Shed’s latest supporter.
Forty members of Deloitte’s South West team will be accessing the Members’ Lounge to benefit from the range of opportunities this vibrant working space offers. As well as working and meeting with clients, the Deloitte teams will network and collaborate with other members and Engine Shed supporters, and will also host and attend events.
Deloitte is a global professional services network of member firms offering audit, tax, risk, financial advice, and consulting services to all types of businesses and public bodies. Deloitte’s South West team works with everyone from multi-nationals and UK corporates to fast-growing privately owned businesses, as well as individuals and the public sector.
The knowledge and business acumen that Deloitte will bring to the relationship will be valuable in supporting Engine Shed’s mission to strengthen and diversify the regional economy. Engine Shed’s Members’ Lounge will help their South West teams to connect with people and companies on a local level, as the firm continues to extend their business across Bristol, the West of England and further afield.
Martin Gregory, practice senior partner for Deloitte South West and Wales, said: “The relationship between traditional industries and creative, digital and tech sectors in the South West means these organisations are driving innovation across the UK and across the world. At Deloitte we’re excited to be at the heart of this and I look forward to seeing the fruits of our collaboration with Engine Shed, their members and the wider South West community to support the region’s growth.
“Our South West teams continually collaborate with clients to deliver new ideas and ways of working to solve their biggest challenges. With access to Engine Shed’s facilities and through the connections we will make, our people will find even more ways to help our existing and future clients grow, innovate and use technology to their advantage.”
Nick Sturge, Director of Engine Shed, said: “Deloitte is a major employer in the region, a key enabler of business growth, and an active innovator in digital business. We are delighted to welcome them into our membership group of 28 organisations, whose members or staff have access to the Members Lounge. The opportunity to work with organisations like Deloitte and connect across boundaries in our thriving economy is part of our DNA and we look forward to working together.”
