About TVCF

Welcome to the Tri Valley Consultant’s Forum!

This organization was founded in 2009 to provide a forum for independent management consultants to meet, exchange business ideas, and pursue new business opportunities.

Dr. Henrik Mann, Rosemarie McKenney, and Kerry West joined together with an interest to demonstrate the extraordinary power of collaborative and imaginative servant leadership to freelancing consultant professionals.  We have seen many success stories of consultants and clients growing their bottom line along the way, while never sacrificing integrity.

We are now a nonprofit (501 (c) 6 organization, and look forward to serving the consulting community and business clients of the San Francisco East Bay, one of the most innovative regions of the world!

Along the way, we also teamed up with the Institute of Management Consultants to make sure we could provide a quality experience and the highest level of support.

Our Mission
