Qualification available with course CMI Level 7 Certificate in Professional Consulting


This course provides a practical toolkit for both internal and external consultants helping you to operate successfully as a consultant.

Becoming a top consultant is as much about adopting a new behavioural attitude, as it is knowledge and technique. It is about being non-judgemental, listening to problems and offering possible solutions.
