You simply can’t afford to miss it,
particularly with this year’s topic. We
have now entered the Digital Age.
Digital technologies are driving a
transformation of the world economy
equivalent in magnitude and impact
to the Industrial Revolution. What’s it
all mean for you, your firm and your
business. For details and to register,
Consulting magazine recognizes that some of the most satisfying client work that consulting firms are doing
these days is for a higher purpose. Each year,
consulting firms invest millions of dollars, as well
as time, effort and sweat equity on engagements
that serve a social and community cause. We’re
back for the third year in a row to honor and
formally recognize these efforts with our Social
& Community Investment Awards.
