Open for Business
Vantage Point is a consulting business located at the top of a hill in Hallowell, Maine, that overlooks the Kennebec River. Hallowell is just two miles downstream from Maine’s capital city of Augusta. Diana Scully originally created Vantage Point in 1989, consulting with 60 clients over 15 years. Substantive areas of consultation included health care, long-term care, behavioral health care, social services, philanthropy, employment, and tribal-state relations. Vantage Point went into hibernation for a number of years while Diana served as the State of Maine’s Director of Elder Services. Diana returned to the private sector in September 2011. Vantage Point is open and providing services to clients once again.

Diana Scully named her consulting business after a poem by Robert Frost.
She likes its focus on both the bigger, more distant picture of life and the right-under-your-nose picture.
She tries to bring both perspectives to Vantage Point clients as she helps them move forward
to carry out their respective missions.
The Vantage Point Poem
As services are delivered, diverse perspectives are respected and considered,
keeping in mind the parable of
The Blind Men and the Elephant.
