When everything started
The story starts in December 2013, during a dinner between our two founders involving cheese and lots of wine (they are French after all).
It was difficult for large companies to find reasonably priced consultants with the right expertise. It was equally difficult for most consultancies to reach out to large companies. They had the idea to create a company to help clients buy consulting services.
A few months later, Consulting Quest was born.
Going back to our roots, we opened the Paris office to serve continental Europe. The European consulting industry is the second largest in the world.
Keep calm and go to London
We just crossed the channel; Consulting Quest opened an office in London, UK, to serve the UK & Ireland, a major market for consulting. Just do not forget to say consultancy and not consulting if you want to be understood.
Our first Directory is online
With more than 2000 Consulting firms profiled, the Directory listed consultancies with more than 8000 offices spread across 160 countries, with links to their websites and social media channels, searchable by consultancy name or by region, capability, or industry.
Hold my Singapore sling
Opening in the fastest growing region for consulting services was a no-brainer for Consulting Quest. We opted for Singapore to serve our Asian clients.
The Singapore office is ideally located for all of South East Asia. We plan to open in China and Japan in the future. Stay tuned.
