Vicky Lewis Consulting offers an extensive service portfolio across different dimensions of HEI international engagement.

Each consultancy project is different and the most effective approach will be agreed with the client on an individual basis. Broad service categories are listed below. The list is not exhaustive so do still get in touch if your requirements don't map neatly onto any of them.

Although I generally work on a solo basis, if additional capacity is needed, I have a wide network of trusted fellow consultants on which to draw.
