CGI is proud to be headline sponsor of TalkTalk’s 15th annual Night of Ambition fundraising gala for Ambitious about Autism.

The annual Night of Ambition black-tie fundraising gala and auction in aid of their long-standing charity partner Ambitious about Autism, which supports autistic children and young people across the nation takes place on Wednesday 27 March 2024, at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House hotel in London and will be hosted by Ambitious about Autism’s ambassador and television personality, Gregg Wallace.

The theme of this year’s event is assistive technology, and guests will have the opportunity to pledge their support directly to this cause. Assistive technology helps to improve access to learning, independence, and participation through technology, thereby bringing huge benefits to autistic children and young people’s wellbeing.

Representatives from CGI will attend the event alongside more than 400 guests to support this great cause.

TalkTalk is one of our key clients in the Communications sector and we have been working together since 2018 to improve their operational services and drive future growth through development and maturing of their IT systems and processes.

Neil Wilson, Chief Product & Marketing Officer at TalkTalk Wholesale Services said: We are delighted to have CGI as our Headline Sponsor for this year's Night of Ambition. Our 2024 gala is particularly special as it is our 15th Night of Ambition celebration, and we are looking forward to getting our colleagues and partners together to fundraise for Ambitious about Autism again this year.

Jolanta Lasota, Chief Executive of Ambitious about Autism said: We are thrilled that Night of Ambition, in partnership with TalkTalk, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Ambitious about Autism cherishes the invaluable support from our partners, especially CGI, our headline sponsor. Together, we are standing with autistic children and young people to champion their rights and create opportunities, and this year’s gala takes place just ahead of World Autism Acceptance Month so promises to be really special.

The Night of Ambition event is not only a great opportunity for CGI to strengthen our ongoing relationship with TalkTalk by pledging support for this very worthy cause, but also reflects our commitment to being unconditionally inclusive, and placing diversity, equity and inclusion at the heart of CGI’s values.

The award-winning partnership between TalkTalk and Ambitious about Autism has raised over £4.9m to date, helping to improve the lives of autistic children and young people across the UK.
