On a personal level:
The last 20 years in business were a real roller-coaster. Jade opened and then closed offices...He recruited, developed and lost great team members. He won amazing clients and then some of them shut their businesses down due to the tough market situations. He marketed, delegated, automated ahead of any competition... He opened new markets that went later on into crisis. He also created several products, strategies and learned new technologies. Some days were amazingly unforgettable and some nights were spent crying in the car because he couldn't afford the rent.
Is that all? No...
Jade survived sickness, accidents and even death of very loved ones. He went so down, said hello to the devil and then rised again. He lost friends and gained faith. He was shaped by international mentors and achieved highest rewards and recognition. He built his home, his family and his reputation. He built his network, his experience and his skills.
Did he give up? You bet he didn't. Did he get scared? He surely did. But he used that fear to drive him forward and innovate to get through the tough times. Is he done? He hasn't started yet!
Would you like to know more? Stay tuned to see his book coming soon. But in the meantime, you can have a virtual or a physical coffee with him and share his top lessons that could be an added value to your journey and of course benefit from your story as well to energize his and our team to keep walking, keep expanding and keep making a difference.
The next 20 years are so crucial to optimize his productivity before retirement..if he ever considers retirement. Jade will never let a situation push me down. He will never let a country draw his limits. He will never surrender to luck, negative people or events. Jade always says: God never lets you down; Believe in yourself and in your potential.
The Certified Management Consultant designation is the preeminent professional designation for management consulting with a variety of sub-specialty areas. It is similar in scope and reliability to Chartered Professional Accountants, Professional Engineers, etc. However, this certificate is not issued by succeeding a course or a test; it must be earned after a complete due-diligence by the CMC-GI board. This includes a review of the entire candidate portfolio consisting of the clients’ case studies, references, documentation, KPIs, and success stories in communication with the clients directly.
In over 54 countries around the world, these national member institutes of CMC-Global; enroll, oversee curriculum delivery, competency assessment and ultimately individual certification to strict common standards. National Institutes are regularly audited by CMC-Global to ensure each Institute upholds and advances the high standards of the designation. This means that a CMC earned in one country can be recognized and trusted should the professional individual work in another jurisdiction.
Each CMC must learn and demonstrate competency across a broad professional body of knowledge, including six functional areas of organizational management: Human Resources, Strategic Planning, Finance, Operations, Information Technology, and Marketing
A CMC must also demonstrate commitment to, experience in, and compliance with the Uniform Code of Professional Conduct
The Certified Management Consultant qualification process rigorously assesses candidates to meet standards in various areas, including knowledge, skills, competence, integrity.
No other qualification encompasses this broad range of skills and experience for management consultants.
