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


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.

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.
