Consulting in Context
The wisdom of experience.
The power of perspective.
The value of connections.
The Power of Three
Long before we founded Taloma Partners, we knew each other’s work and followed each other’s successes. By joining forces, we are able to serve a more diverse clientele, collaborate internally on best strategies and apply proven expertise in new ways.
Our panoramic perspective is rooted in a breadth of relevant experiences, including the most important one:
As your partner, we work closely with you as an extension of your team. Your challenges can become opportunities and your adversaries can become allies. We love achieving impactful results for our clients by leveraging our executive experience in issue management, public affairs, strategic communications and thought partnership. Through our shared experience in the public, private and nonprofit sectors, the principals of Taloma Partners are passionate about harnessing the “power of three” in everything we do for our clients.
We’ve been there. We’ve done that. We get it.

“There is a point at which public and private sectors intersect. Being mindful of that dynamic, and preparing in advance, results in stronger outcomes. Looking to the horizon and planning ahead drives my work.”
“Navigating complex issues—from legislative and policy issues to corporate challenges —has been a constant in my work over the past 20 years. It’s part of my DNA.”

“Identifying common goals and engaging stakeholders as partners is critical to the success of any major initiative. Collaboration is key and essential to my approach.”
We have served as the executives leading major initiatives, managing millions of dollars in consultant engagements for more than 25 years. Simply said, we’ve been the client. Our panoramic perspective helps us understand the context of each assignment rapidly, complement the client’s team, and leverage the network we’ve built over decades of business and community involvement.
