Dear Sandi,

We are really interested in discussing more about a potential collaboration with you.

Our aim at PwC Cyprus is to find the right solutions to complex problems, creating value for our associates, clients, stakeholders and society. We embrace the future with a focus on quality and by building strong relationships based on trust. PwC’s new global strategy, “The New Equation”, leads to a people led and tech powered future. It includes our ability to look at problems from different angles and present innovative solutions that make a difference and lead to sustained outcomes. More than 1,000 people in Cyprus join forces with 295,000 professionals of our global network in 156 countries and create an experienced team that combines intelligent approaches, experience and technological innovation to offer globally consistent services and to work with a broad range of clients, from large international financial institutions to small locally-based organisations. Our industry specialisation in several sectors such as Energy, Communication & Technology, Hospitality & Leisure, Transportation & Logistics, Health, Government & Public Services will give a project the benefit of our in-depth industry knowledge and experience. Our participation in European funded projects will be valuable as it will offer multi-skilled solutions to a wide range of challenges. We can be involved in implementing various activities of a project such as analysis of indicators and KPIs, developing targets, generating new knowledge to support benchmarking and policy recommendations. PwC is also experienced in providing academic training, digital reskilling, workshops/seminars related to ICT technologies, innovation and entrepreneurship, guidance for legislation and internationalisation and has long experience in organising conferences and vocational training seminars. PwC can provide to the consortium digitally equipped collaborative workspace, the PwC Experience Center containing cutting edge equipment for rapid prototyping, manufacturing, digital collaboration and user centred design. We know how the European Commission works, since under the umbrella of PwC EU Services, we have won and delivered projects successfully under the European funding framework. In addition, we have easy access to and maintain great professional relationships with key policy makers and with senior people in public and private organisations in Cyprus who will play a crucial role in the successful implementation of any project especially to gain maximum communication impact. A number of senior experts who have vast expertise across the entire spectrum of necessary skills can add great value and insight in the project. Also, their presence, experience and credibility will help gain the endorsement of the recommendations from the Cyprus authorities.

Looking forward to your response.
