Government Experience



The complexities of Government are rarely understood by those who operate outside of it. Prior to establishing the consultancy, Four Rivers Consultants worked in executive management, project management, policy development and in grass roots service provison in State and Federal Government Departments within Queensland and New South Wales.


We bring over twenty-five years experience and an indepth understanding of the machinery of Government to all our projects.  We don’t assume that we know your business better than you do, but we offer independent, expert investigation, analysis and advice. We conduct thorough research, apply best practice methodologies and ensure that  processes are managed well, that risks are minimised and that our services and advice are evidence based. 


Our Director is a founding member of a consortium approved under the Queensland Government’s whole-of-Government, Pre-Qualified Supplier Arrangement (2014-2017).


This means that Queensland Government Departments and Agencies as well as NGO’s, Local Councils and Statutory Authorities can engage any member of the consortium without the need for competitive tendering.  Purchasing our services is streamlined, expedient and guaranteed to meet the highest  Government standards of procurement. The following consultancy services have been pre-approved for delivery under this arrangement:


  • Business and Strategic Planning

  • Business Statistical Analysis and Research

  • Business Performance Measurement and Review

  • Change Management

  • Operational Improvement

  • Organisational Diagnosis

  • Risk Management and Contingency Planning

  • Governance Assurance

  • Training

Leadership is an elusive concept, hard to describe and impossible to prescribe. It is more evident in its absence, so that when leadership is needed, its lack is sorely felt.
