What our clients say

  • “I have always been impressed by their in-depth understanding of the HE environment and its markets. Julie and her team demonstrate a professional and insightful approach, which delivers usable and practical outcomes, both on time and in budget. I wouldn’t hesitate choosing them again.”

    Chris Watts

    Director of University Recruitment at Leeds Beckett University
    (Then Director of Marketing & Student Recruitment at York St John University)

  • University of East Anglia

    Julie did a fantastic piece of work to support the University of Reading’s Internationalisation plan. Julie manages to convey all of her years experience, along with really detailed research, in such a way that you feel you are being guided along by an expert friend rather than ‘instructed’ by  a consultant.

    Caroline Bysh
    Director of Marketing, Digital and Communications at SRUC

    (Then Director of Marketing, Recruitment and Admissions at University of Reading)

  • I am always confident that the work will be of high quality and well received by internal clients, whether it is desk research, analysis of complex data sets or working with primary data. This all makes it really easy to go back to Vincent Consulting for different projects, and the relationship we have built them over time, only serves to enhance this.
