The Games continue to celebrate the men and women who have served their country and highlight how sport can promote recovery and inspire unity. Since 2014, the Invictus Games has developed into a globally recognised event and we look forward to playing a part in its next phase.”
Integral to the Influence Sports & Media team will be Nathalie Quéré, based in Amsterdam, who has 20 years of marketing experience working for global brands and corporations.
