“Our board plans on growing our international education program. As part of our planning, we engaged Smith Business Consulting at Smith School of Business, Queen’s University to help us with a strategic analysis. Their work was outstanding. They provided insights into the international education marketplace that we would not have the time or wherewithal to perform. Their work on our value proposition, problem areas, operational factors, marketing strategies, human resources implications and attention to cultural nuances will constitute the bulk of our strategic planning. On behalf of the ALCDSB, I would like to thank Charlie Mignault and his students for their invaluable support. Congratulations to all.”
