David and his team at Vectis are brilliant strategists. From them, I have learned so much about the importance of strategy. I have come to regard it as one of the most important components of anything I am involved with. David’s visionary skills and capacity are extraordinary and have led to more success in a much shorter time frame than I could have ever imagined.

Vectis DC's strategy and expert implementation gives our 30-member college coalition the greatest sense of possibility.
