At the 2019 edition of the Constantinus International Award, an annual ceremony that recognises excellence in the consulting industry, China has taken both gold and silver medals. 

Held for the ninth year in a row, the Constantinus International Award is an initiative from the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), a professional worldwide body for management consultants. Consulting firms from all over the world are invited to present their client projects and results, with only the very best selected to pitch during the final. 

According to Alfred Harl, Chairman of the prize, the goal of the Constantinus International Award is to “draw attention to the exceptional consulting projects that are delivered every year”, and to celebrate joint successes while enabling the profession to learn from best practices.

Having hosted the awards in Italy last year (Kazakhstan two years ago), this year the congress took place in Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas. “Being able to host the awards in a different country each year emphasises the international relevance of this award,” said Dwight Mihalicz, ICMCI Chairman.

Out of the 22 projects from seven countries submitted, China took home the top prizes. The top gold honour went to Beijing Jingyi Wanjia Technology, which helped the Jianhe hospital in Qiandongnan yield spectacular achievements in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The panel applauded the firm’s fresh take on traditional medicine and sense for innovation. 

The silver medal went to China’s Shanghai Kmind Enterprise Management Consulting, for a project delivered at the Bosideng Brand. The consulting firm helped the brand design a consumer-driven strategy which resulted in a “remarkable increase” in sales, according to the independent jury.

Other medals went to everis in Spain for a project on how behavioural design can improve efficiency through intuitive processes, and to Ukraine’s ShiStrategies, for its work with the Ukrainian Ministry of Social Policy geared at promoting self-employment in the country.
