The program is good structural preparation for the Management Consultancy Toolbox and the Diploma of Consultancy which is the next step in the pathway to CMC and global recognition / certification, and aligns with ISO 20700:2017 Guideline for Management Consultancy Services.

‘I saw the program in an IMC email and as I am fairly new to consulting it sounded like it was going to cover what I needed to know. I certainly got that and a lot of things I hadn’t thought about yet. It was fantastic, got everything I wanted and more. It is very reasonably priced and I have already recommended it to others – it’s a really good foundation.’
– Brenda Moore AIMC

‘I wanted to go back to basics, challenge some myths, and reflect on my career. I was after a sounding board from an experienced management consultant so an experienced facilitator was absolutely key for me. Steve was excellent and very experienced. It was good to understand the mindset of a management consultant and what it takes to start up. Hearing from a senior management consulting, revising the fundamental areas to address your brand and establish your career and tools and techniques to use was great. I can commence my CMC journey now.”  - Andrew Gerges MIMC
