About Dandelion Consulting

Evolve your organisation to be more effective, efficient and deliver on purpose.

Dandelion Consulting is a Sydney based consultancy specialising in the For Purpose sector. This boutique service was established by Director, Laura to harness the strengths and creativity in the sector and build effectiveness to achieve social impact.

The world is rapidly changing. People and organisations must continuously evolve to be sustainable and have an impact. Policy changes, new technology, competition, consumer choice and the increasing complexity of communities in which we work requires us to think laterally, redefine operating models, adopt new thinking, systems and ways of interacting.

Dandelion Consulting brings strategic insight, multiple perspectives and passion about potential.

I assist you to navigate the complexities of a changing environment and evolve to be more effective, efficient and deliver on purpose.

I partner with organisations to:

Formulate and execute strategy that has an impact

Adapt thinking, models, and processes to stay ahead of the game

Build the capability of leaders to take the organisation forwards

I work with large non-government organisations, social enterprises, small community groups, consortiums, individuals and everything in-between.
