“Consulting Excellence”, launched today by the MCA [Management Consultancies Association], marks a new worldwide hallmark of quality for management consulting firms, committing members to promoting high standards of ethical behaviour, value for clients, and professional development.

This global first is designed to recognise excellence in the UK’s £10bn world-leading consulting industry, helping clients purchase high quality consulting services, and, employees choose firms committed to ethics and value. As an MCA member since 2014, Oystercatchers is taking great pride in following the Nine Principles of Consulting Excellence.
