Based in Sydney, Inside Policy is a national collaboration of experienced executives, project managers, social researchers, technologists, political operatives & policy wonks.  


We approach all of our engagements by combining our technical skill with our substantial real-life experience. All Inside Policy project team members proposed for any given engagement have direct experience working, in, and across government, corporate, community and small business sectors. They are also recognised experts in their field.


Our approach is simple. We apply our creativity, smarts and experience to assist our clients solve some of the toughest social policy challenges. This is our way of creating positive change.


Core to this approach is our preference to co-design. Our experience shows us that a much better outcome is achieved when you – the client – participate in the project. At Inside Policy we do not take your problem, go away and work out a solution, then hand the solution over. Rather, we work with you – hand in glove – by seeking your input and the input of key stakeholders at every step of the project.
