Industry Expert Sees 'Tremendous Growth' in Small Business Consulting in 2006

Share Article

“I haven’t seen this kind of aggressive growth in almost 5 years,” says Cam Forbes. He is referring to the expansion of small business consulting in 2005 and 2006. Forbes started a consulting business in 1999 and has been coaching small business owners, consultants and sales people in starting their own businesses. He relates, “It’s not too late to start a consulting business. Now is the time to get started, if you haven’t already.”

Cam Forbes, founder and Managing Partner of Opus One Ventures ( has been speaking, training and coaching business owners, entrepreneurs, and sales people around the world. Now the consulting industry expert -- whose website has attracted attention from media outlets such as Robb Report, and Fortune -- is observing “the kind of growth we haven’t seen since the late 90’s.”

He’s talking about growth in the consulting industry. High fuel costs and raw material price increases are putting tremendous pressure on businesses to improve their bottom line. This is leading to a reduction in capital spending and recruiting. The void left in the workplace is being filled by industry experts and consultants who have niche experience to execute strategic projects for these organizations.

Forbes says “Although there has been limited growth over the last year, the sustained growth within the consulting sector over the past two and a half years has provided further evidence of the value consultants add, and the positive effect they are making on their clients’ business, both in terms of improved productivity and increased revenues.”

“Unfortunately too many people believe they have nothing to offer these businesses” explains Forbes. “The exact opposite is true. Individuals should analyze their skill set to determine if a move to consulting is right for them - many times it is. And with more capital flowing into the already $52 billion marketplace there is no better time to get started than right now.”
