Anyone wishing to be listed is warmly invited to contact the DCED Secretariat (Coordinator@Enterprise-Development.org
Some CVs are publicly available, but some require you to be logged in (in which case the link will take you to the library page). Programmes seeking a consultant to help them are advised to make the usual enquiries about the suitability of any candidate; the DCED is not formally endorsing or certifying them by listing them here.

(or for a 'mock audit' to see how close they are to being ready for audit) are asked in the first instance to discuss their requirements with the DCED Secretariat (Coordinator@Enterprise-Development.org
); not all of the consultants listed below are available for audits.
