Have you ever wondered if you could do something that would really change the world? Andrew Davies, Chief Executive Officer of Strategic Planning Online, a South Florida technology company, believes that he can; in fact it’s actually part of the company’s mission statement. Focused on improving learning outcomes for higher education students, Mr. Davies and his team believe that they can help colleges and universities to give students a better chance to succeed in the real world. “Strategic Planning Online can help institutions to better prepare students for the challenges and opportunities that await them in the workforce, empowering them to have a greater impact on the world,” Davies said. The company’s slogan featured prominently on their website is: “You can change the world, we can help,” and they’re serious about it.

Erin Bell, Vice President of Client Services for Strategic Planning Online supported the company’s mission statement, stating, “It might sound bold to tell people that they can change the world, but we believe that our clients can really make a difference for millions of people over time. We help institutions make a real impact on student learning outcomes, which in turn improves the student’s opportunities in the workforce marketplace, and strengthens their ability to perform at their chosen career. This empowers students to truly change the world by improving outcomes for the people and institutions they serve.”
