Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com)

Hi everyone. Earlier this year I mentioned on the forum that we were working on a <b><a href=http://news.top-consultant.com/guide_to_consulting_firms.aspx>Definitive Guide to UK Consulting Firms</a></b> – a new career guide for those interested in careers in consulting.

Well after months and months of research and toil, this 300+ page publication can now be downloaded and best of all <b>it costs you nothing!</b>. Actually you can request a PDF, eBook or hardback edition - simply register for your copy at:

<a href=http://news.top-consultant.com/guide_to_consulting_firms.aspx>http://news.top-consultant.com/guide_to_consulting_firms.aspx</a>

Would appreciate your feedback on the guide - please do post your comments here. We'll obviously be looking to build on this and make the second edition even more compelling... though hopefully you'll already find that the first edition is in a different league to anything else already out there.

Enjoy.

Tony,

Observation, file did not download using Firefox. Works fine with IE. Not sure how the registration works, but I have put in my name three times to download the file. Does this mean that I will get three lots of newsletters? Since three records were produce, do you have consolidating processes in place to mitigate this?

Thanks

Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com) to Blunt (#3)

Casio - we were pretty pleased to get 12 full pages of advertising in a brand new publication. I think a newspaper sales team would be cracking open the champagne if they'd got this much take-up for a consulting supplement! But if we're selling ourselves short I'd love to hear from you - have got a great commission-only sales job that'll make a mint for you if selling extra space is so easy!!

;-)

Blunt - have asked our IT manager to look into your firefox issues right away. I can register and download in IE and in Firefox 2.0 and Firefox 3.0 without any problems, so maybe it's specific to a certain edition. If you can post any further details about the error messages you're getting and the version you've got installed that'd be a great help. And as regards your registration, we only send newsletters to each address once regardless of how many times you've registered...

Blunt to PF (#4)

PF,

Sure I have one of those, silly question to ask :)

I have loads of algorithms that do some really complex mathematical processing. I'd bore you with them, but the crux of it is that you wouldn't understand it.

Tony,

Got Firefox v3.0.1. Checked for updates. No further updates required. Using Nitro PDF Download v2.0. Hope this helps!

p.s. Thanks for the literature. Very useful.

I'll pass Tony! It's a relief to see such a quality free publication not trying to sell something or packed with third party advertisments.

Thanks Casio, we've tried to strike the right balance here and were really keen to be able to make this free so that it could benefit as wide a readership as possible...

Very good read and answered a lot of questions I've been pondering for a while about exactly what is available to me outside consulting.

I am also having troubles downloading this document with firefox 3.0. (again IE is fine). I get the document to open and then at about 5.3MB is stops loading and stalls for good.

Thanks very much, I'm trying to break into management consulting from another field and what I've read so far is very helpful.

Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com) to anon (#11)

With regards to the point about LEK being missing from the guide, we invited all our consulting contacts (including LEK) to submit entries - and there was no cost to having an entry, so no reason not to participate. As you can see the vast majority chose to take part, but a few firms either chose not to or just didn't appreciate the scale of the guide we were producing and therefore the importance of them getting involved.

We did consider trying to plug the gaps but came to the conclusion that we'd inevitably end up overlooking some firms who ought to be in there and / or publishing info about those firms that wasn't a good reflection of those firms so reverted to just chasing firms multiple times to get involved.

Interestingly a few have been in contact in the last 24 hours trying to see if they can get themselves included now that they've seen how glaring their omission is!..

Casio to Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com) (#13)

Tony,

Do you have parameters dictating the size of firm that can list? It strikes me that for a boutique consultancy (10-30 revenue generating consultants), of which I know a few, this could be a good way to get their name known - advertise their expertise, attract talent etc.

Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com) to Casio (#14)

Casio - firms just need to have reached the stage where they'd be potential employers of consulting candidates.

One of the big drivers in producing this guide was that we are always being asked by readers to recommend smaller consulting firms in different niche sectors. As we're in contact with tons of firms like these it seemed like a great idea to get as many of them as possible into one directory and spread this network / knowledge we've got far wider. Hence why we went for the term <b>Definitive Guide</b> because there are other publications out there that list details of the biggest global consulting brands, but none that we're aware of that provide a comprehensive listing of both large and smaller consultancies.

In that case I'll be sure to mention the guide to a few relevant people I have in mind. Perhaps we'll see them in there next year.

Interestingly every time i try to download this I get a message telling me that the file is corrupt and can't be repaired! (It may well be down to my client's IT system though!)

I'll try again from home, but all the comments on here about how good it is certainly mean I don't want to give up yet!

Smaller consultancy to anon (#17)

Hi Tony,

I work with a consultancy business and would like our consultancy including in the next issue (assuming this will be 'refreshed' at some stage in the future). Is there any way of opting in?

Thanks, and great resource.

Have just been advised that more than 4,000

copies of this guide were requested in the 48 hours following its release!

While we're finding a "home" for this on the site - ie. somewhere all visitors can find it - just thought I'd give this thread a bump so that more of you can get your free copies.

Any feedback from those of you who've read it already would be much appreciated.
