Our Vission

Today we see an increasingly dynamic world due to the convergence and interdependence of technology, human capital and strategy. The major challenge facing most decision-makers is the need to efficiently manage scarce resources and ensure that projects or programmes are appropriately conceived, developed and implemented for long-term sustainability.

It is therefore imperative for organisations increasingly to interact with experts for new ideas and sound advice to solve specific problems and seize opportunities as they arise. Individuals and organisations require a one-stop shop for complete solutions to current and emergent challenges in the business environment.

Recognising this need prompted the establishment of INTERNATIONAL CONSULTING SERVICES LIMITED (ICS), a firm whose strategic focus is the provision of leading edge consulting services to a discerning clientele that have an eye for quality. Whilst not pretending to have solutions to all problems, ICS' aim is to provide efficient and customised services to meet our clients' unique needs.

There is a growing number of general public and private, international, government and non-governmental organisations who increasingly require these professional consulting services. The need to seek professional assistance for hands-on solutions to meet strategic objectives and enhance performance has led such organisations to increasingly benefit from our expertise.

Our varied experience at ICS extends across the whole of Nigeria. We have successfully undertaken assignments for various States and Local Governments, some Government Owned Enterprises, participated in internationally financed projects and collaborated with non-governmental organisations on developmental programmes.

ICS has formed strategic alliances with globally renowned management consulting firms with the necessary expertise and access to highly experienced professionals to undertake some internationally financed projects in Nigeria.

We work hand-in-hand with such culturally diverse technical teams, co-ordinating and managing multi-tasked assignments and have successfully completed a number of result- oriented complex projects.
