IIB Consultancy Business Development Programme™
Build your consultancy business with proven Institute techniques.

Accredited Associates
Every different type of business background is represented within the IIB Alumni™ - graduates are encouraged to collaborate as part of the powerful and exclusive network of accredited Associates. The one thing all accredited Associates have in common is experience. All come from positions such as Chief Executive, Managing Director or Executive Board Director, having run some of the biggest companies in the world. Many have started, run and sold their own businesses.

Selection, Training, & Accreditation
In order to carry the IIB logo, executives must pass through the Institute's selection procedure, and then successfully complete the IIB Consultancy Business Development Programme™ (CBDP).
The CBDP includes training at the Residential Business School and provides executives with a framework and methodology to provide their own practical advice that works™ particularly to independent, small to medium sized businesses. The CBDP, which first started in 1991, has seen thousands of executives graduate to become accredited Associates who are exclusively qualified to provide the unique IIB Business Support Programme™ to their clients, and to show their personal accreditation status and IIB logo on their business stationery.

Continual Professional Development (CPD) and the IIB Extranet
Training, national and international conferences, workshops, Regional Group meetings, seminars, webinars, and newsletters provide ongoing support to keep those who graduate up to date as business generalists. The Associates' extranet allows access to an invaluable global network of expertise, advice and information for all accredited Associates to tap into as and when their clients need specialist support.

Benefits to Businesses
The experience and depth of knowledge available within the network of Associates combined with the methodology and structure taught within the Consultancy Business Development Programme™ means that clients get the very best possible support available to independent businesses and their owners. The global distribution of IIB Alumni™ in over 40 countries also means that most business owners are not far from an accredited Associate.
