Burgess is appointed Master of the Guild

Founder member of the Guild of Management Consultants and global managing partner at Andersen Consulting, Keith Burgess is Master of the Guild for the next year. He was inaugurated at the Guild’s installation ceremony on 14 October.

Burgess believes that this will be an important year for the Guild because it is applying to join the City of London as a company. Once the Guild has attained company status, Guild members will have the right to become freemen of the City.

Burgess sees the Guild as a medium for initiating change in the City of London. “There will always be a role for change agents. The Guild is both a medium for change agents and a convivial environment in which to meet like-minded people,” he said.

He expects members to take on more responsibilities in terms of corporate citizenship, and aims to increase the Guild’s charitable and educational activities.

“I expect the Guild to grow in terms of contributions to the charitable sector, and for member consultants to make a contribution to worthy causes,” he said. “The Guild is rich in people resources. Members have different abilities and I want to help them unleash their capacity for charitable works.”
