It is a great pleasure to recommend Diane and her exceptional team at DH Leonard Consulting. With her firm's assistance, North Carolina New Schools was successful in securing a $20 million i3 scale up grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This was an incredibly complex and challenging proposal; with their help, what seemed impossible became possible. Her expertise, strategic and thoughtful approaches, great communication, and flexibility were tremendous assets in this process. They are adept with program development, proposal writing, budget development, logic models and much more. I highly recommend Diane and DH Leonard Consulting and am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them.
