At Clyburn Consulting, we bridge the gap between abstract ideas and concrete solutions. ​


The Latin phrase a posse ad esse means from possibility to actuality.  At Clyburn Consulting, we work with our clients to transform ideals and goals into actual achievements.  We guide our clients to positive results by dissecting the core elements of each issue.  


We listen to our clients’ concerns. 


We are then able to craft solutions using our

(1) knowledge of legislative issues,

(2) experience with working with the federal government, and

(3) diligence in bringing together multi-faceted perspectives.


We understand our clients’ needs, grasp how to untangle the intertwining dynamics of the federal policy-making process, and are adept at building relationships.  ​



Rafts on rivers, covered wagons, and horse-drawn railcars while nostalgic are a far cry from our nation’s transportation system today. America now has millions of miles of highways and roadways, railways and waterways; over 848 million airline passengers on U.S. based flights in one year; and over 10 billion passenger trips on public transportation this year alone – one network serving a population of nearly 320 million people! America must ensure the integrity of her multi-modal, integrated transportation network.  


Our public infrastructure development ensures the efficient flow of both passengers and freight, via aviation, surface transportation, and our maritime ports. We must make the appropriate investment in transportation infrastructure, if the United States is to maintain its leadership position in the world economy.  


At Clyburn Consulting, we have first-hand knowledge of shaping public policy. As public servants we helped pass federal legislation and promulgated federal regulations impacting our transportation network. In the private sector, we bring this unique insight to our clients – what is needed to improve our infrastructure and the most effective way to get there.

The days of smoke signals, carrier pigeons, and the pony express are long gone. However, the efficient and effective communication of information is still a major driving force in our world. The first extended broadcast of the human voice was transmitted through the air in 1906. A telecommunications transformation has taken place in the intervening century. Even more dramatic changes have taken place in the twenty years since passage of the 1996 Telecommunications Act. The telecommunications industry is poised to provide consumers with unprecedented access to information with the development of smaller, more powerful microchips; innovative spectrum utilization and interoperability; and more ubiquitous broadband technology.  


At Clyburn Consulting, we guide telecommunications stakeholders through the federal legislative process. We provide strategic analyses of the technical aspects as well as the political implications of telecommunications policy debates. The impending updates to our telecommunications laws will have a major impact for years to come on how we process voice, video, and mobile applications. Clyburn Consulting is at the forefront of shaping the future of telecommunications.
