delivered differently.

Delivering excellence for the public sector
through insight, experience and expertise.

Hatfield House Consulting provides strategic solutions to decision makers in the NSW public sector. We have an enviable reputation for successfully resolving complex program, policy and stakeholder issues because we understand the unique needs of government agencies. We have extensive experience working in these environments and it’s our inside knowledge that enables us to recognise what decision makers require and provide tailored solutions that meet their objectives.

The public sector is facing a time of radical change

Government agencies are facing an increasing number of challenges today that will continue into the future. Tight fiscal environments, rising community expectations and the need to make services agile, fast and personalised, are affecting the way policy is developed and services are delivered.

At Hatfield House Consulting, we have a unique understanding of the dynamics of the public sector and recognise the pressure that policy makers are under to deliver programs that make a difference to the lives of Australians.

We provide an experienced approach to identifying and analysing issues, and we draw on our extensive knowledge of public sector environments, processes and tools, to deliver pragmatic advice and bespoke solutions that produce successful and sustainable outcomes.

As an extension of your team, we provide a balance of dynamic thinking and in-depth analysis to generate feasible strategies that work within the relevant policy framework and implementation environment.

We are agile in our methodologies and we respond rapidly to emerging opportunities as well as policy, governance and operational challenges.

What we do

When consultation is required, we work to tailor an approach and strategy that will deliver the outcomes needed by decision-makers.

Our modes and methodologies include either in-person or online consultation, and we bring fresh insights to government leaders. Our expertise lies in diagnosing the complex challenges that arise in developing, managing, and delivering policy, programs, and services.

With extensive experience and understanding of the public sector, we can consult on strategic and program development, stakeholder engagement and communication and program transformation.
