Europe's top consulting firms for thought leadership

Thought leadership is an important part of any consulting firm’s client strategy, as creating insightful research helps firms and their consultants cement their reputation and legitimacy. Meet the consulting firms in Europe with the best thought leadership.

Every year, Europe based consulting firms create thought leadership of all types, ranging from in-depth research reports and white papers to methodologies, insights, blogs, videos, webinars and podcasts. The aim of thought leadership is to inform business leaders and stakeholders by delivering insights of value to them, in the process helping consulting firms with establishing themselves as an authority on a topic and with building a relationship with their readers.

Consultancies create thought leadership across all areas of expertise, including strategy, leadership, management, organisation, finance, digital, human capital and operations, and across all sectors, spanning automotive, aviation, construction, energy, financial services, government and the public sector, healthcare, professional services, retail, technology and telecom.

Consultancy.org assesses 500+ pieces of thought leadership produced by consulting firms globally per year, and our team in Europe follows the developments in the regional market. Based on our unique database, we present a list of the consulting firms that excel in thought leadership quality, impact, reach and volume.

The ranking includes all consulting firms in this list for which we have sufficient data. The dataset is refreshed by the hour, meaning that lists are near real-time.
