Consultancy Buyer

Purchasing consultancy is an increasingly challenging and risky activity. Here at the Institute of Consulting we have a number of ways in which we can help buyers of consultancy and business support services, whether this is your first time or if you're simply looking to improve return.

As the only UK professional body that represents both individual consultants and consultancy firms we are often the first port of call for prospective clients wanting access to a pool of credible, trustworthy and experienced consultants. We've developed the National Consultants' Register to do just that.

There are several reasons why this might be, yet it demonstrates the need for engaging independently endorsed consultants and business advisors with the reassurance that their IC membership provides as a demonstrable mark of quality and ethical practice.
