"Charting a district's strategic direction amidst significant uncertainty was no easy feat, but GLISI transformed what was designed as a face-to-face experience into a meaningful virtual planning session for our stakeholders. They gave us actionable feedback and guidance that demonstrated how well they came to know us and how much they cared about our success."
