Company Overview
Born in the US to parents who left Iran in the wake of the Islamic Revolution, Talla grew up in a unique household invigorated by American grit yet steeped in the rich traditions of Iran. The contrasting experiences between her family in the US and in Iran shaped her entire worldview. It’s being witness to such disparities that drive her commitment to break down barriers and give people access to opportunities.

As a consultant, she brings 10+ years of experience working at Deloitte, where she built a wealth of knowledge across strategy and operations consulting, brand management, sponsorship marketing, and digital technologies. She also received her MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business with a focus in entrepreneurship, general management, and finance.

Testimonial 1
From Thomas Derdak, Founder and Executive Director, Global Alliance for Africa:
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Talla on a strategic plan for an organization I have been involved with for 25 years. I can say without hesitation that Talla is one of the top two consultants I have worked with during my lengthy experience in the not-for-profit sector. Her professional skill, including her ability to identify salient facts and organizational priorities, and her unique talent for synthesizing those facts and priorities into a strategic plan, is most impressive. Regarding her interpersonal skills, her sensibility, demeanor, balanced judgment, and guidance not only contribute to a genuinely collaborative, productive decision and result but inspire confidence in moving forward in the right direction.

From LaTonya Hill, Director of Family & Community Engagement at UChicago Charter School:
I had the awesome pleasure of working with Talla through a University of Chicago Booth School of Business initiative supporting non-profits in executing a strategic project. It was such an amazing experience, I wanted her to become a part of our strategic planning implementation team permanently. Her professional experience and people skills were highlighted in her seamlessly guiding us through taking the multi-tiered project goals from ideas to implementation. She was such a pleasure to work with, I hope that it was not the last project that we get to collaborate on.

From Jims Porter, President of Refugee Action Network:
Working with Talla was the perfect fit for us [Refugee Action Network]. She is not only a skilled facilitator, but truly took the time to get to know us an organization – perhaps better than we knew ourselves! This, paired with her keen understanding of organizational growth and development, helped us think more strategically and creatively. With her help, we discovered what steps were necessary to further realize our vision. She is attentive, responsive, and brings rich experience, knowledge, and insight to the table.
