‘Anything that provides sustainable support for the consulting industry, I am very much in favour of,’ Barker said.
The MCA set up the IMC in 1962 as a separate organisation to look after the interests of individual consultants, leaving the MCA to concentrate on serving the interests of consulting firms and the industry as a whole.
Barker hopes that the MCA can work on more collaborative projects with the merged body.
Lynton Barker made the revelation during an exclusive interview with the new Management Consultancy electronic edition, which will run in full in its relaunch issue, delivered on 27 May.
