Riskex Managing Director Touched By a Golden Moment - London Olympics 2012
After a day at the Olympic Park, watching events and soaking up the Olympic atmosphere, Milton Keynes businessman Mark Delo was touched by a golden moment.
Mark Delo is Managing Director of Riskex Ltd, Milton Keynes, who produces a Cloud based management system called “AssessNET”
Mark says, “We have been enjoying the optimism of the Olympics in the last few weeks, and the calls to “Inspire a Generation. This led me to form a rock band in my spare time to write music and release tracks to help relieve the stresses of the business world and embrace the Olympics.” The band is called “uWoT” and its first release was “Living Dream” which was written in support of Olympic Champion, Victoria Pendleton, and sent to her in the run up to the Games. The track has proved popular on YouTube and Mark’s golden moment of 2012 was a chance meeting with Victoria Pendleton in London after his day at the Olympics.
Mark says, “Meeting Victoria was an amazing experience. She is a lovely lady who was so open and generous with her praise for “Living Dream”. In the heat of the moment, all I could think to say was, “well done”, and suddenly she put her medals in my hands. As I stood holding the precious Olympic Gold and Silver, it brought home to me how athletes like Victoria are so much more in touch with the real world. Her generosity of spirit and willingness to share her success are a great antidote to the stresses we face in business. My message, as we bask in the success of 2012, is simple. In business, be inspired by Team GB, working as a team for mutual benefit, and support one another to keep this country great, and build our legacy to inspire a generation, not only in sport but in all business arenas.”
