NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AMCF has chosen an accomplished group of experts and practitioners as judges for its 2013 Awards, Celebrating Value & Excellence in Consulting. The awards are given each year by AMCF to highlight projects that best illustrate how consultants add value to the work their clients are doing.
Some key categories in which consultants can submit projects include: Growth Strategies; Financial & Risk Management; Change Management; Operational Performance; New & Digital Media, and for the first time, a Humanitarian category highlighting projects aimed at providing a "greater good" for a populace in need.
"We are proud to have as judges a group whose expertise and knowledge in their respective fields are unmatched," said John Furth, CEO, AMCF. "Our addition of a Humanitarian category was dictated by the number of consultants worldwide who work on critical projects without proper recognition."
