Before I ever applied, and during my first two years at university, the word dissertation terrified me (and still does). This pushed me towards an alternative final year project, the Consultancy Project. This is a project which allows students from the university to have real industry clients, and to aid them through their very real issues.
The consultancy industry is said to be ever growing and ever changing. The UK consultancy industry itself is currently worth around £9 billion and employs over 80,000 consultants (Management Consultancies Association, 2014). This industry is formed of people who are contracted by businesses to help improve the furthering of value, performance, provide external knowledge, skill set and experience to their client (Management Consultancies Association, 2016) Hence why they have been said to be the doctors of the business industry (Wickham and Wilcock 2012)!
Looking into this industry, I knew that it was the choice for me. My team was created of two marketing students and three events management students (Including me.. obviously..). Our client was a festival which took place every two years, called Frequency Festival. Frequency is a festival revolving around the digital arts, culture and community. It is comprised of interactive installations, trails, performances, talks, workshops and symposia’s (Frequency, 2016).
