ConNect Consulting Network

CCI COTTING is a member of the ConNect Consultants Network

For larger consulting projects, colleagues from the ConNect consultant network are called in. All of them have gained experience with large consulting companies and have been on the market for years as owner-managed consulting companies. We have been working together for years, regularly exchanging experiences and can thus create added value for our clients, as they would expect from large consulting firms, but more personalized, individually tailored to their needs, and ultimately cheaper.
