Sir Jonathan Stephens, a key official responsible for the successful delivery of London 2012, gave a presentation on the delivery and legacy of the Games to Japanese organisations engaged in Tokyo 2020.

Sir Jonathan Stephens, Former Permanent Secretary of the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) gave a presentation at the Ambassador’s residence at the British Embassy Tokyo on Thursday, 17 April 2014. He was the lead government official responsible for successful delivery of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and was Accounting Officer for the public sector funding.

Those invited to the event were from key organisations engaged in the preparations for Tokyo 2020. Sir Jonathan delivered two presentations, the first covering London 2012 organisation, governance and funding, and then on the legacy of the 2012 Games. The guests showed great interest to learn from London 2012 and his presentation symbolises an important step in sharing London’s experience and expertise whilst building closer ties with those involved in the delivery of Tokyo 2020.
