Dynamic global affairs and markets, technology and governance trends are reshaping the structure, systems and policies of government; policy-makers predict major shifts and react to unforeseen change. Across Australia’s four levels of government, their decisions impact every citizen.
Ellis Jones understands the formal and informal processes government. Our experience comprises work with political and administrative leaders in local, capital city, state and federal government. We speak the language of government; we know the implications of decisions and approaches.
Community consultation & stakeholder engagement
Using well established research and innovation methods, including those endorsed by government, we design and implement community consultation programs. Navigating sensitive themes and relationship dynamics, our stakeholder engagement is conducted at the highest levels of government and industry. We make confident recommendations for necessary change.
We assist in the research, co-design and writing of policy, often in complex stakeholder environments. We develop behaviour change initiatives and public education campaigns to launch and extend the reach or acceptance of policies and programs. And, we measure and report on impact.
To approach government with information, advice and opportunities for partnership, you must know how government works: where decisions are made, who influences them, the rhythms of budgeting and policy making, and what matters, when. We can help.
