The Worshipful Company of Management Consultants is one of the Livery Companies of the
City of London. It started as a Guildof the City of Londonin 1993 and became a Company without Liveryin 1999. On 4 May 2004, the Court of Aldermengranted the Company’s petition to become the 105th Livery Companyof the City of London. It draws its memberships from practicing management consultants and has close links to the Management Consultancies Associationand the Institute of Management Consultancy.
Between 1993 and 2004 the Company had worked strenuously to establish a record of achievement in the fields of education and charity whilst gaining the financial resources required for admission to the Livery.
Livery companies continue a long tradition of supporting, protecting and developing their trades and crafts, whilst acting in charitable ways within the wider community. They have also traditionally been ‘clubs’ in which colleagues assemble in fellowship and social intercourse. The Worshipful Company of Management Consultants continues these traditions by undertaking pro bono consultancy for charities including supporting the
Centre for Charity Effectiveness(which it established in partnership with the Cass Business Schoolof the City University in London) and forming close ties with the Sea Cadets.
The Company has 200 (senior members) and some junior who gather six or seven times a year for formal dinners and more frequently for informal social gatherings.
