Experiences with CBS

Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of the Confederation of Business Strategists (CBS)? They are currently seeking people to work as associates. They ask for pretty sizable subscriptions during the first few months. Has anyone out there joined CBS recently, and made it pay? Or are they just trying to milk laid off consultants with redundancy cash?

Hi Anon,

I had the same question - I posted my CV and was pleased to get a number of responses, including one from the CBS. They invited me to attend an 'informal interview' and sent me some material about the CBS. I thought that they had a real job or an interim manager position that they wanted filling, but was surprised and disappointed to find that all they were really offering was training in their proprietary toolset, and membership of their network/associaton. And the cost of joining the CBS is not small. So I asked myself - who gets the benefit?

Maybe the training does help new consultants win work. Maybe the network can provide benefits in terms of support from other independent consultants and the opportunity to share experiences and potential opportunities. But I would want to understand more clearly the value I would get from the training and other services provided, before parting with any cash.

Or maybe you and I are just unduly suspicious!

Have fun!

Thomas

Thanks Thomas, your feelings echo mine. I'm not convinced about the value of the network offered either - a network of other consultants seems to me of limited value. Perhaps there is someone else out there who has joined CBS and is prepared to share their experiences

The CBS recruitment process includes a stage where potentially interested people are given access to a range of current members, both long standing and new. This enables them to complete thier due dilligence and decision making process.

To avail yourself of this and get first hand experiences please send your CV to Steve@cbsltd.com, without obligation.

Steve McAvoy, Director CBS
