MCA chief: ‘we are not treading on IBC’s toes’

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.’
