London: Professional development consulting firm PDN has joined the UK's Management Consultancies Association (MCA).
PDN has worked with professional services clients across Europe, the US and the Far East. Its programmes draw on extensive research into best practice and trends with major business schools, and the firm's own background and experience with leading professional services firms.
PDN says of itself, "PDN tutors are practitioners who teach. We are a team of former principals and partners of consulting firms and board executives each with a minimum of 15 years' experience who bring best practice consulting skills and experience to professional services firms and the Global 500. We provide training, coaching and consulting to help our clients increase margins and productivity and improve performance."
William Johnson, PDN's Managing Director said, "PDN is delighted to be associated with the MCA and the opportunity to share insight and best practice with the wider consulting community. We have been impressed by the energy and enthusiasm of the MCA and look forward to the opportunities presented as PDN become more deeply involved."
Alan Leaman, Chief Executive of the MCA commented, "PDN's expertise in the field of professional services skills development complements the skills and knowledge of our other members. We are delighted to welcome them to the Association. Our priorities for 2013 include a determination to focus on the value of consulting, including through the MCA's Consultancy Buyers Forum. And we will play a larger role in national debates about the future of our economy and society. PDN and other members will help greatly in these tasks."
Last month Entrusted Group also become an MCA member. The MCA's member companies now comprise around 60 per cent of the UK consulting industry in fee income, employ around 30,000 consultants and work with over 90 of the top FTSE 100 companies and almost all parts of the public sector.
