To ensure a successful school opening, Robert Clark contracted Talbot Consulting to manage startup planning and implementation for Newark Leadership Academy (NLA). Talbot was charged with redesigning YouthBuild Newark’s (YBN) highly successful youth development program into a diploma-granting accelerated learning model. “Leslie Talbot and her firm were indescribably instrumental in the realization of NLA. Her expertise and meticulous attention to detail enabled us to leap from planning to implementation.” – SanDonna Jones, Director of Grants and Administration, YouthBuild Newark, Inc.

“Without the support of Talbot Consulting we never would have been able to pull together such a thorough application…you did such wonderful job listening to our concepts and helping us create a narrative for our school. We believe that the story we told in the narrative not only met all the technical requirements of the application, but still fully communicated our passion for the adult learners of the District of Columbia. Also, you were a pleasure to work with – always prompt, professional and friendly.” – Connie Spinner, Founding Board Member, Community College Prep Charter School
