On 25th May, The Times released a special supplement featuring the winning firms and consultants from the 2017 MCA Awards. The 12 page supplement includes the stories behind all the winning projects from both the clients and the firms as well as interviews from all our Consultant of the Year winners.
The MCA Awards have now been running for 20 years and are the benchmark for quality within the consulting industry. They demonstrate and recognise the value of consulting and celebrate how clients and consultants working together achieve the best results.
This year's Project of the Year was awarded to Integration Management Consulting with the Department for International Trade. The success of this engagement relied on an innovative approach balancing entrepreneurial and consulting skills, putting communication, stakeholder management and clear governance at the heart of the endeavour, rather than mere support tools.
The Times Award for Consultant of the Year was won by Sonia Storr of Deloitte for her work delivering large-scale transformation programmes and supporting clients in the energy and resources industry to adapt to market challenges.
In his introduction to the Times supplement, Alan Leaman, Chief Executive of the MCA writes:
“In these pages you’ll find compelling evidence of creativity, skill, insight, leadership and persistence, together with deep technical understanding and knowledge. These qualities are already helping to create growth and opportunity, implement change and equip Britain for the future. They are needed more than ever today.”
