I'd like to thank PM Calvert Markham for the huge amount of work undertaken to establish the Centre for Management Consultancy Excellence, one of my 3 strategic initiatives launched during my year. The first seminar associated with the Centre will be the Urwick Lecture to be held on 11th September. A 3-Year Plan for the Centre will be discussed by the Court in June.
