The MCA Awards have been an important event in the UK consulting calendar, they demonstrate the true value of consulting to both the private and public sector and the impact consulting has on our society. For 2021, there were 24 categories of awards for projects and individuals.

Our team enjoyed a successful evening at the Management Consultancies Association Awards (MCA) scooping the award for “Best New Consultancy” and “Highly Commended” in the strategy category for our work with The Weir Group, a global engineering firm.

The Best New Consultancy award acknowledges our client focus, delivery excellence, commitment to our people, and operational high standards. In the Strategy category, we demonstrated a major contribution to our client’s strategic plans and approach by improving delivery of technology, driving better value and supporting the business objectives and strategic goals.

Steve Watmough, our CEO, says: “We’re delighted with both these prestigious accolades, it’s a testament to the outstanding work we have delivered and the high calibre of consultants in our team, who are really driving our business forward and producing quality results and solutions for our clients.

It’s a real privilege for us to be recognised alongside heavyweight industry players and we know we faced tough competition.”

The MCA Awards have been an important industry event in the UK consulting calendar for 24 years and demonstrate the true value of consulting to both the public and private sector. They are the benchmark for quality within the sector, attracting the very best submissions and celebrating high quality results.

The MCA revealed that competition was tougher than ever as entries were up by 72% this year compared to 2020 – a record number of entrants.

Commenting on the 2021 edition, Tamzen Isacsson, Chief Executive of the MCA, said, “So many of the entries tell of the ingenuity, commitment and skill of our consultants which makes us a world leading industry. And so many show how the consultancy sector responded to the Covid-19 pandemic. The ability to deliver more services remotely released talent around the country and saw those talents being used not just in this country but around the globe. The faith clients have shown in the consulting sector in the most difficult of times has been vital.”

On presenting the Best New Consultancy Award, Tamzen congratulated the team for building trusted relationships with clients and for its focus on wellbeing, which is important now more than ever.
