A renewed emphasis is being placed on the work of consultants in Barbados and throughout the region.
That's according to president of the Barbados chapter of the Caribbean Institute of Management Consultants Norma Shorey Bryan.
She says certification is an important part of that process.
She made the comment during a recent session hosted by the CIMC, and held under the theme, 'Opportunities and Challenges for Management Consultants'.
She adds that establishing strategic relationships is also important.
