about our team
Public service is our vocation and we specialise in public sector consulting. We understand the unique challenges and opportunities involved in creating public value and we believe it’s the best use of our skills. We understand the values that drive the cultures of publicly funded organisations and we want to help them to live up to their promise.
Every member of the H4 Consulting team has worked in or with the NSW or Australian Public Sector in operational, senior, or executive roles. We have experience across a range of human services domains, including education and training, health, disability, housing and homelessness, child welfare and protection, and Aboriginal affairs. We have worked both in and closely with service delivery agencies, central agencies, and diverse community and volunteer organisations.
Although we are former public servants, we also bring knowledge and experience from the non-government and private sectors. We have qualifications and experience in diverse disciplines including public administration, business, psychology, information technology, project and program management, change management, analytics, economics, and finance.
