Running your own management consultant practice has its unique set of challenges. We understand the challenges.

IMC USA is a national volunteer organization of management consultants who advise senior leaders from a variety of disciplines.

We share our wisdom, our struggles, our strengths and our passion for what we do. We help each other grow as professionals and as people. We provide resources and tools for success. We help our members become more valuable to their clients.

This is where consultants learn the business and how to be better consultants.

Testimonials

20 years ago as I was considering going into consulting, I had many questions. ‘Would I be good at it? What skills do I need? How can I speed up my learning curve?’ For me, I’ve gotten the best learning ROI from other successful consultants in IMC: learning between the lines – practical and applicable information like others’ hits and misses and how consulting is really done.

Juan A. Negroni CMC®

Labor and Relations Consultant, At-Large Professional Member and Chair of IMC USA

I was looking for a way to differentiate myself and my firm from the thousands of consultants in my area. Once I joined IMC, I met a group of like-minded professionals who began to collaborate, share information and partner with me to provide services to our clients. If you’re looking for a way to stand out from the crowd, consider joining IMC. I think it will be one of the best investments that you’ve made.
