The Consultants Network is primarily targeted towards independent consultants and advisers who operate as sole practitioners or within Registered Consulting Practices and is open to all members of the Institute.
Members of IMCA's Consultants Network offer many years of combined experience gained locally and internationally, across all categories of business and all sectors, both public and private with many holding the internationally recognised Certified Management Consultant (CMC) designation. They all adhere to IMCA's strict Code of Practice and deliver focused, practical, on-time and value for money solutions to their clients.
The Network has a strong commercial orientation and its main objective is to help members build contacts with a view to collaborating on assignments, pitching for business together and supporting one another as associates and peers. It is envisaged that events will be held quarterly with an aim to help members get to know each other, share ideas and experiences, promote their expertise and develop working relationships.
