Americas Hub and Caribbean Symposium Report

Americas Hub and the Caribbean Symposium were a Great Success




On Monday, June 18th  2012, members of the Americas Hub hosted by the Caribbean Institute of Certified Management Consultants (CICMC) met in Montego Bay, Jamaica, to report on the state of their Institutes and continue to find ways to collaborate and strengthen their organizations. Brenda Pope, MBA, CISA, CMC, President of CICMC, and Dennis Strong, CMC, represented the Caribbean Institute, Valerie Sluth, MBA, CMC, represented the Canadian Institute; Cristian Welsh Miguens, CMC, represented the Brazilian Institute and Loraine Huchler, P.E., CMC, represented the U.S. Institute.  Drumm McNaughton, PhD, CMC, ICMCI Secretary and Lead Trustee from IMC USA, and Ilse Ennsfellner, PhD, CMC, Vice Chair ICMCI, represented ICMCI.  


Participants in the Hub meeting shared their perspectives on the BTS, along with current initiatives in their respective institutes.  All felt the meeting was very beneficial and looked forward to next year’s meeting in Sao Paolo.


Following the Americas Hub meeting, CICMC hosted the 4th Annual Caribbean Management Consulting Symposium, “FROM MARKET ASSESS TO MARKET PENETRATION”  that included speakers, Business to Business meetings, continuing education and, of course, lots of networking among consultants from the entire Caribbean region.  Tony Bradshaw, Chief Operating Officer of the Caribbean Export Development Agency, the primary funding source for the conference for the past four years, and other notable participants from various Jamaican trade and business agencies.


On Tuesday, June 19th, Drs. McNaughton and Ennsfellner represented ICMCI and presented on ICMCI and standards, and the European Standard, CEN 16114, respectively to the 250 person conference.  Sessions at the conference included


  • Identifying and exploring opportunities for management consultants under the CARIFORUM-EU EPA to facilitate effective market penetration
  • Increase penetration through Certification, Standards and Strategic Alliances
  • Bidding & Winning Contracts, Best Practices, Lessons Learned


On Wednesday, June 20th, attendees met one-on-one with business leaders to identify business opportunities and possible synergies in developing and emerging markets for management consultancy, including strategic alliances, mentorship and/or partnership for 50 to 60 CARIFORUM and 15 EU firms.   This was very much like the CMCC (Consultants meeting consultants and clients) that was held at previous Annual Meetings.


On Thursday, CICMC conducted two concurrent workshops focused on certification and building consulting businesses.


  • Advanced Certified Management Consultant (CMC) Preparation
  • Training on how to run a consulting practice – the use of management systems and processes to ensure quality


All in all, it was four very productive days that showcased the best the Caribbean Export and the CICMC have to offer.
