Toby Leflang Consulting
With a modest beginning in 1990 we grew our business from two people to a bicoastal agency with offices on both the East & West Coast. Our client range over the years has included the collectible industry such as David Winter, Harbour Lights, Disney, and Precious Moments to County Fairs, small businesses, the hospitality industry with hotels such as the US Grant, The Westgate, the Hotel Del to defense contractors such as SAIC, Teledyne Ryan, GE, Qualcomm, the US NAVY, MARINES, COAST GUARD, AIR FORCE, ARMY, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, & BORDER PATROL as well as the NATIONAL GUARD, Francis Parker School, Coronado Chamber, Coronado Yacht Club, The Comedy Palace & many small to medium sized enterprises. Perhaps some of our high points have been incentive programs for, Dale Carnegie, (“The Leader in You”), to increase sales as well as Teledyne Ryan that saved millions with OSHA Reportable Accident Reduction. We also developed a recognition program that lasted years for SAIC Worldwide for over 33k employees and created & ran a program called, Ship-To-Shore, which was the official site for the US NAVY FLEET providing products to the public from every ship in the NAVY. Out of our work with the NAVY we were discovered by the Rose Garden DI, (Chuck Taliano), and began a long journey with Chuck designing and developing products for the US MARINES including the Yellow Footprint Program. From there we even dabbled in the fashion industry creating designer gear with some known cutting edge artists such as Eric Iovino.
Our main scope & focus now is with helping Small to Medium sized Enterprises, (SME’s), survive & grow in these competitive times providing quality services & solutions. TLC has scaled our size down to a smaller San Diego based team of highly skilled professionals. We treat our clients like family, their success is our success. We look forward to meeting with you & learning about your goals & dreams, we are here to help.
