“Making the career transition from CEO to starting my own consulting business was definitely enhanced by the IMC QuickStart program. Taught by a team of dedicated member consultants, it became clear to me that among IMC USA’s greatest assets are its members’ knowledge and experience. If you’re starting a consulting practice, I highly recommend IMC’s QuickStart program.”

“Participating in the QuickStart program is a great way to launch your consulting practice. You will learn early in your consulting journey how to address and overcome many of the issues that continue to be obstacles for other consultants with years of experience. The QuickStart curriculum includes many “nuggets” of information that I wish I had known much earlier in my consulting career.
