2023 was a challenging time for many industries, yet growth and profitability in the consulting industry was perhaps one of the worst affected areas. 

As the economic slowdown began to play out globally following the fallout from the pandemic, the negative ramifications included supply chain disruption, a labor market in flux, and geopolitical unrest.

In turn, low investment activity and high interest rates due to these market conditions caused the corporate world to tighten its purse strings and scrutinize spending. 

These reasons, among others, were why the consulting industry was hit so hard last year. Yet whether it’s advice on entering a new market or publicizing an innovative product line, consultants can be a lifeline for businesses and can help to boost their profit margins. 

Now, halfway through 2024, the signs are showing that the industry is picking up again as leaders and corporations look to take advantage of the warmer economic climate after years of austerity. 

Publicize, a global PR agency with a power niche supporting high-value, high-growth tech startups and enterprises, is one example of a consultancy showing positive signs. Its leadership team has just named Craig Corbett Chairman of the company in a move that’s sure to strengthen the PR agency even further.
