A total of 50 people will sit on the Steering Committee and be part of the steering process. In addition, a facilitator and adjudicator will be involved in the overall process each day. Each of the Steerers has graciously given up their personal time as a contribution to the continued development of the industry and Discovery Sport Industry Awards as a whole.
The full adjudication process, Steering and Judging, will be hosted at Deloitte in Woodmead as part of their role as a sponsor of the Discovery Sport Industry Awards. As part of the Steering sessions, a Deloitte executive joins each session as the official adjudicator.
The Official Shortlist will be announced on 22nd February 2017. Thereafter, judging has been scheduled for the week of 27th March 2017.
Mark Holme, audit partner at Deloitte said: “It’s great having so many sport industry players passing through our doors for the steering process and it is comforting to see the care and attention that is afforded to every entry. Entrants can be assured that the process is handled with the utmost integrity and professionalism.”
Sgwili Gumede, chairman of Sport Industry Group said: “We at Sport Industry Group are delighted to welcome all the Steerers this week, who represent the full spectrum of the sport industry. We look forward to their valued input into the process and we believe that this creates a new level of openness and transparency of the process and thus aides the credibility of the result. ”
