  • What our clients say about us


    "I was a new CEO walking into an organisation that required reorganisation and realignment against the backdrop of Covid-19. This made everything difficult. FPL Advisory provided robust strategic advice to help reshape the organisation against deliverables. FPL Advisory have played in facilitating an organisation wide organisation cultural change piece. The combination of sound advice and pragmatism ensured that I was fully supported implementing organisational change.”


    - CEO, Non-profit organisation



    What our clients say about us


    “We engaged FPL to assess our media and external communications activity and FPL were flexible and adaptable as they worked through the complex project issues. They provided a series of tangible recommendations we could execute immediately as well as broader goals that we could work towards. Their perspective and understanding of the options and limitations of our operating environment with respect to government and the higher education sector provided a strong foundation for the organisation to take a new direction on our external communications approach.”


    -Chair, University Research Institute

    What our clients say about us


    “I’ve worked with Steve Cusworth and FPL Advisory on several projects relating to pharmaceutical manufacturing development, specifically in relation to controlled and restricted substances. This required extensive engagement with State and Federal Governments to shape policy, regulation and legislation to enable establishment and growth of new opportunities. FPL’s ability to identify, and facilitate dialogue with key decision makers within Government at all levels was invaluable in progressing business growth.”


    -Former CEO, Pharmaceutical Manufacturer


    What our clients say about us


    "Steve and Catriona have provided exceptional advice and support over the past 8 months including strategy development, preparation of media releases, speaking notes, policy documents, social media guidance, website content, state-wide webinars etc. They provided a very tailored approach to our strategy- not the ‘one size fits all’ approach that you often receive."


    - Director, Voluntary Alliance of Nonprofits




    What our clients say about us


    "FPL Advisory provided us with a professional and useful insight into the workings of the Victorian Government by hosting a tailored workshop for our staff. The workshop gave 40 of our research, communications and business deployment staff a greater understanding of ministerial offices and public service roles, the policy development process and the Victorian Budget cycle that is still useful in our organisation today. I highly rate FPL’s research, tailored presentations and consulting services."


    - Relationship Manager, Victorian Government, Large research organisation


    What our clients say about us


    "With a thorough understanding of our business, FPL provides consistent and collaborative support as our preferred government relations consultancy partner. Working together for over five years, we have been able to promote a specific policy agenda that’s critical to business growth, build our profile in most states and territories across Australia and navigated complex investment strategies to support regional manufacturing."


    -Corporate Affairs Director, Large FMCG



    What our clients say about us


    We engaged FPL Advisory to help us navigate a complex policy and political landscape, with the goal of securing government interest and support for our project. We have found the FPL team to be very responsive and targeted in their advice, offering a full and frank assessment in response to our needs, which is very much appreciated. We have a high degree of trust with Steve Cusworth and his team – they have acted with strong professional integrity at all times, allowing us to share sensitive project information to receive their trusted advice.

    How and why are things changing, what is the appetite for change within a broader environment, and how can you target your efforts to achieve most impact? Understanding the state of play is important to achieve your goals.

    Ineffective, inconsistent or a lack of communication affects an organisation’s ability to proactively influence policy and can impact on your social license to operate. Develop systems to deliver consistent messaging and build the profile of your organisation.

    With so many government grant and incentive programs, it’s hard to know where limited personnel and resources should be directed for maximum value. Get in early and bring stakeholders along the journey with you.

    No one can predict the future but you can prepare for it. Assessing potential government decisions and understanding how and where changes in policy will impact an organisation is key to minimising adverse outcomes and maximising opportunities.


    GovernmentRisk360® is a proprietary methodology of FPL Advisory to systematically capture risks that arise from government activity to inform an organisation’s strategic decision-making.
