Welcome to IMC New Zealand

IMCNZ is the professional body that supports and represents management consultants in New Zealand. We help experienced professionals become management consultants, whilst maintaining professional development and standards for existing consultants.

We are raising the bar for management consultants and this website is here for our members and their clients.


IMC New Zealand was established in 1970 and is one of 50 members of CMC-Global, the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes. 2020 marked 50 years of IMC in New Zealand.

If you are a consultant, membership brings benefits such as professional development opportunities, resources, fellowship and support. By becoming a Certified Management Consultant (CMC), you can achieve the profession’s only international certification mark, recognised in over 50 countries.

If you are looking for a management consultant, we provide you with the assurance that the consultant you engage will have undertaken a rigorous certification process and will be an experienced and professional management consultant, committed to ongoing professional development, familiar with latest best practice and supported by the Institute’s resources and Code of Conduct.

We offer a range of networking and professional development events and I look forward to meeting many of you at one of these, either online or face-to-face.
