MCA chief: 'we are not treading on IBC's toes'

Management Consultancies Association boss Peter Hill refutes claims that he wants the associaition to set standards for individual consultants

The Management Consultancies Association chief has refuted allegations that
the trade body is looking at moving into standard-setting for individual
consultants.

Peter Hill, chief executive of the MCA, said he ‘must improve his
communication skills’ following reports
that he said the body wanted to set standards for consultants, and not just act
as a trade body for the consulting industry firms.

KPMG’s Alan Downey, the new president of the revamped consultants
representative the Institute of Business Consulting, made the claim in
Accountancy Age. The IBC offers individuals the chance to take a
chartered consulting qualification.

‘It’s not an issue at all, we’ve no aspirations to enter that market at an
individual level,’ said Hill. ‘We want to improve standards for the firms [we
represent], there’s no conflict with the IBC.’
