UK firms overseas: Broad skillset to match high fees

By Rod Newing
Financial Times 17 November 2008


The trend for overseas clients to tap into the expertise of UK-based consulting firms is rising, reports the Financial Times:

'The UK has a long tradition of working in different cultures, which may give the profession an advantage. Dean White, head of Middle East and emerging markets at PA Consulting Group, says the approach of the consultancies and of individual professionals will determine the extent to which they are welcomed in a region. “This is not the place to commit a cultural faux pas,” he says.

'PA consultants working overseas come from many nationalities and backgrounds. The firm places primary importance on those who are not just technically knowledgeable, but who have demonstrated their ability to work in a complex cross-cultural environment.'
