Economic growth during the 1980s and 1990s fuelled the growing consultancy market and increased revenue. Consultancies specialising in IT provision burgeoned with the dot.com boom in the 1990s, the growth of the Internet and Y2K. Although the consulting industry experienced a downturn during 2001-2003 period, it has been experiencing steady growth ever since.
BUSINESS ADVICE AND SUPPORT
Business advisers and consultants today provide a wider range of services to clients than their predecessors in the 1970/80s. The business advice and support profession now covers a much wider remit, often working under the auspices of government sponsored or subsidised schemes and agencies such as Local Enterprise Agencies, Business Links or through Regional Development Agencies.
Business advisors and consultants are consistently looking to develop their skills, careers and personal capital within the profession. In todays competitive environment delivering high quality consultancy services is vital to growing a client base. Also with the current economic climate, good business consultants are being squeezed and restricted by demanding budgets.
Clear Intelligence offers support services to many UK consultants looking to support their work.
