The Sales Office is a DTTL Center of Excellence within Global Risk Advisory that works to support strategic accounts across the network to generate additional opportunities, increase pursuit win rates, and drive increased sales. The Global Risk Advisory Sales Office includes a diverse set of sales support skills including marketing, sales and pursuit strategy, project management, creative design, communications, knowledge management and research, and more.

The Global Risk Advisory Pursuit team is part of the Global Risk Advisory Sales Office. The Pursuit Team is an elite sales-focused team with one goal: help pursuit teams around the world win the largest and most strategic opportunities in Deloitte’s Risk Advisory portfolio. The Pursuit Team works in collaboration with pursuit teams locally to create and implement truly differentiated sales strategies, develop innovative solutions to our clients’ challenges, respond to requests for proposals, and help pursuit teams think differently about client relationships and how we shape and influence opportunities.


In 2021we expanded our pursuit support capabilities for strategic Cyber deals, including new specialized commercial capabilities to help ensure commercially compelling Cyber solutions. Non-Cyber pursuit teams are requesting commercial support for non-Cyber deals, however we cannot meet demand with our current staffing mix. Additional resources are needed in order to expand commercial capabilities for non-Cyber pursuits.
