Communications Committee

The MCA Communications Committee is made up of Media and PR professionals from across the MCA membership. The group meets to discuss key issues affecting the consulting sector and to help guide and shape the MCA communications activity. The Committee meets 4 times a year. Guest speakers can attend committee events.

Members invite guest speakers to attend these meetings to discuss how their business team’s operate and how to pitch stories. Previous guest speakers in 2019 include:

The MCA’s role is to establish the UK consulting sector as critical to the UK economy and society. Our role is to promote greater public and business understanding of the range and depth of consulting and to enhance public trust in consulting through Consulting Excellence.
