A year on since launching Football CEO™ gaming application, Vi-Ability and Deloitte have been recognised by picking up Social & Environmental Value award at the #MCAawards in London last night.
The MCA recognise consulting excellence and has initiatives to recognise the UK’s leading management consulting firms. Deloitte works collaboratively across the globe, providing audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management, tax, and related services. Vi-Ability has a long-standing partnership with Deloitte and is honoured to jointly receive recognition for their partnership in creating and developing Football CEO™, which was launched on apple and android platforms globally in May 2016.
Deloitte picked up a whole host of awards in thought leadership and consultancy. A special mention is to go to Deloitte’s Ed Greig, who won the prestigious trophy for “Digital & Technology” consultant of the year.
Ed’s work on the game was instrumental in its success, his passion for developing a challenging concept with a real social purpose being the key driver in bringing the game to life. Earlier this year Ed was appointed a Vi-Ability board member,
Creator of Football CEO™ and founder of Vi-Ability, Kelly Davies says:
“We are so grateful for the work we did with Deloitte to have been recognised at this level, and amongst the consulting industry. It demonstrates that commercial and social can come together, and what can be achieved when a genuine partnership exists, and the right team of individuals are brought together to bring innovative ideas to market. The impact simply goes far beyond sales and education, in this case, We’re absolutely delighted to be able to use technology in an innovative way, to lead from the front (for others to follow) and we hope it has a real impact on those who use it, and it ultimately helps to transform lives. “
Football CEO™ is a significant step forward in Vi-Ability’s mission to use the commerciality of sport to help over 10,000 individuals develop key employability and life skills, gain a job and realise their potential. This app is not only available to the general public to buy for pure entertainment purposes; it also can be used as a key educational tool to engage a variety of individuals & organisations (i.e. sports clubs) to think differently and in an entrepreneurial way.
