Consulting firms are firms of experts or consultants, whose job is to provide professional information and advice to an individual or organization in exchange for a fee known as consultation fee. Consulting firms in Nigeria spread out their services across various platforms like the financial institutions, IT firms, Business development and Management, PR and Advertisement agencies, Real Estate, Human Resource and so on.
The primary purpose of consultant is to provide access to industry specific consultants and Subject Matter Expert (SME) which can in turn provide valuable resources and inventory for the much needed growth of a business or an individual.
