Worshipful Company of Management Consultants

The Worshipful Company of Management Consultants is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. It started as a Guild of the City of London in 1993 and became a Company without Livery in 1999. On 4 May 2004, the Court of Aldermen granted the Company’s petition to become the 105th Livery Company of the City of London. It draws its memberships from practicing management consultants and has close links to the Management Consultancies Association and 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 School of 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.

Its motto is 'Change through Wisdom'.

A stained glass window designed by Stella Timmins to commemorate the Company was installed at the Guildhall in 2001 and was officially recognised by the Lord Mayor of the City of London at a ceremony on 18 October 2001.
