The edition reached an audience of 855,000 readers drawn from businesses and organisations across the Capital. Amongst the editorial pieces was a review of the role the consulting industry has played in the public sector change agenda, a counter-balance to the barrage of negative press coverage that has appeared in the UK media over the last months. This was one of the initial aims of the partnership, as Top-Consultant Director Tony Restell commented at the time of its announcement late last year:

“Recently there has been a spate of very one-sided press coverage of the consulting industry. In striking this partnership with the Evening Standard, our aim is firstly to provide some more balanced coverage of the UK consulting industry – and to talk about all the positive ways in which consulting firms benefit the UK economy and many of our largest corporations. We also want to provide our clients with a new recruitment channel for reaching potential hires – and this new partnership allows us to offer print advertising as well as online advertising solutions.”

The Consulting Special featured five in-depth consulting editorials that will be reproduced on in the coming weeks. Headline stories that appeared on 27th February were:

o Boom time for consultants – growth prospects for the UK industry are
   looking positive
o Recruiters struggling to meet demand – hiring staff is the number
   one constraint to growth
o Have you got what it takes? – firms now hiring in staff from outside
   the consulting sector
o Innovation is the name of our game – an interview with Accenture’s
   UK & Ireland MD David Thomlinson
o Consultants driving change – a more balanced assessment of the
   consulting industry and its role in transforming the UK public sector

The next quarterly consulting specials in the Evening Standard are scheduled to appear in the 15th May and 25th September editions. Advertisers interested in having a presence in these special management consultancy feature sections should contact [email protected]
