“There was always at least one takeaway that I could implement right away,” says Kris Dybdahl, V.P. of Bjorn’s Audio Video. “I had hit a wall that I needed help breaking through and starting these VITAL classes encouraged me to make some positive changes in the business.”

VITAL’s extensive CI business knowledge, business metrics and tactical acumen are crucial tools for integration companies to strengthen their business and profits. In 2023, VITAL will offer a new series of CI Business Mastery Class via live webinars. Each month, a very important new CI Business Mastery subject is addressed.
