Who is Consultancy BenchPress for?

Equity owners and senior leaders of consultancies based in the UK&I turning over less than £50m should complete the Consultancy BenchPress survey and read the Consultancy BenchPress report.

A new survey is launched every year – each one asks a series of financial performance questions before delving into a specific theme such as talent retention, winning new business or leading a high performing consultancy.

A full insights-led report follows each survey a few months later and is exclusively available to survey participants and members of TCGN. An abridged version of the report is available to all.
