Who we are
Independent advice backed by experience and innovation

Creating positive change for strong, smart and sustainable communities

Doing things differently: promoting a new way of working

GovPartners is an Australian owned management consultancy providing candid advice, transformational change and empowering your people to deliver better public services primarily across the planning, building, infrastructure and environment sectors.


We have a deep understanding of the inner workings of Government and a large network which has enabled us to become a trusted advisor and partner to the public sector in a short time.


We also enhance the capabilities of start-ups and small business to transact with Government where they have an idea or solution to an identified problem and values that match our own.


Our team are realists and they will work with you to maximise opportunities, working to understand the intent, the complex problem, divergent stakeholders and will apply a mix of strategic, analytical and creative thinking to deliver robust outcomes that deliver value.


Our core values of respect, collaboration and agility are at the heart of how we function.


We place purpose before profit, we act with integrity and we donate time pro bono to services we care about.
