Consultants: Businesses need your know how

In addition to finance, the EBRD enables small and medium-sized businesses access business advice to help them grow.

We believe that businesses need professional know-how to grow and stay competitive. We also know that while successful consultancy projects can transform businesses, many of the companies we work with have never sought outside help before and find it difficult to know where to place their trust.

That’s where we come in. We connect businesses with local consultants for dynamic projects in a range of areas of expertise, explaining the process and sharing the project cost with the client.

Working with us

Whether you are a specialised consulting company or provide a broad range of services, we are looking for experts who can help our clients achieve their goals.

Our clients demand high-quality services. In return, we make sure working with us is as simple as possible. We support you through the project process, from the diagnostic phase through to completion, helping you establish a working relationship with the client and ensuring that each project has a clearly-defined scope. Our results speak for themselves. Eighty-two per cent of our clients have never worked with a consultant before starting their project. By the time we carry out our project evaluation one year after the project is completed, almost 95 per cent say they would hire a consultant again – and almost half have already done so.

Working with us also means you join a growing network of over 6,000 professionals. This gives you the opportunity to exchange ideas, and share best practices for your field. Together, we have already helped more than 18,000 companies fulfil their growth potential.

Professional development

We know how important it is to keep broadening your expertise. We have a series of courses that shares essential skills, resources and techniques for effective and impactful consulting as well as for running a successful consulting business. The courses deliver the know-how necessary to go from embarking on a consulting career to running a profitable business and will help you deliver high quality advice that small and medium-sized businesses are ready to pay for.

Whatever your level of experience, our training courses provide best in class consulting tool kits and frameworks to help you take your ambitions forward and build a durable consulting business. So, whether you’re an expert looking to use that knowledge as a professional consultant, a young consultant seeking to build up your consulting skills, a senior member of a consulting firm eager to learn about new specialisations or the owner of a consulting business seeking to enhance your business model, get the training you need to step up your game.

There are six courses. You can take one course, or four, or all six, it’s up to you and what you need. Thanks to generous support of our donors, we charge a reduced participation cost for each course. Click on the course to find out more, or contact your local office.
