In the course of the 2012 ICMCI Biennial Congress in Orlando the second Costantinus International Award was bestowed.
Six countries participated in this award (Austria, China, Great Britain, Hungary, Norway, and Slovenia). Each country had the opportunity to nominate up to three projects. The outcome was a total of 14 national “best practice”-projects from all over the world submitted to the Constantinus International Award. After a three-week-evaluation period, the winners were determined by an international jury of professionals in the branch. “For the second time an Austrian company was among the winning projects which shows that excellent quality sells regardless of origin and country size”, says Alfred Harl, MBA, CMC, chairman of the Austrian Professional Association of Management Consultancy and Information Technology, UBIT.
The gold medal went to Creuna, a consulting company from Norway. The three silver medals of the Constantinus International Award 2012 went to Square Peg International from Great Britain, to Gender Consulting from Norway and to the Austrian company more&g e-Health GmbH. The winners’ projects show how important innovative consulting know-how is for sustainable growth and economic revival. Mr. Robert Clark (Director Business Development, Public Safety & Homeland Security Frequentis USA Inc.) handed over the trophy and said: “The world is better served because of the dedication to excellence that you all share.”
At the festive gala ceremony Mr. Dr. Francesco d´Aprile (Chair of ICMCI) highlighted the importance of quality and professionalism in management consultancy as well as the CMC - “Certified Management Consultant” designation as an indication of high international consulting standard. Mr. Dr. Drumm McNaughton (Secretary ICMCI, organizer and moderator of this event) was very proud of the international cooperation, and Mrs. Dr. Ilse Ennsfellner (Vice Chair ICMCI und supporter of this event) pointed up that the Constantinus International Award got a high priority in the consulting profession during his short existence. These outstanding projects submitted to the Constantinus International Award - presented to an international jury of professionals in the branch - demonstrate that the services and know-how provided by management consultants all around the world deserve international reputation and attention. Therefore, we are looking forward to the next Constantinus International Award and invite the management consulting professionals worldwide cordially to participate in this great project.
