Over the years, it’s offered interesting insights into the evolution of consulting businesses, such as revenue and profitability trends and fees, consulting expertise and specialties, business structure and operations. These in turn help our Women In Consulting community and beyond gain critical insights in how to streamline operations and drive growth of their consultancies.”
