Top award-winning consulting firms

Which consulting firms receive the most praise from their clients and industry groups? Meet the world's top award-winning consulting firms.

In their work for clients, consulting firms demonstrate excellence in the services they offer and in the delivery of projects, across every conceivable area of expertise and within any industry. Excellence in client service is rewarded through hundreds of different awards per year, including recognitions from consulting associations, independent analyst firms, industry / functional award competitions and communities of experts.

The awards landscape is however much broader. Consulting firms are also lauded for their financial growth, performance of their individual consultants, innovation within their own business, quality of thought leadership, the leading role of their solutions, or contribution to a social cause, among others.

Consultancy.org keeps track of the world's leading awards for and including consultants, and leveraging our unique database of thousands of data points across 100+ countries, here are the consulting firms that stand out for the quality of their work and reputation in the market.
