The core business of the company is the development of water and natural resource management policy and strategy that are based on robust principles and are designed with a strong understanding of industry practice.
DG Consulting commenced operation in February 2009. It was founded by Denis Flett and Garry Smith who were longstanding colleagues and friends with significant experience in the water industry. Denis retired from the business in 2013, however the key principles of people centred and practical solutions that Garry and Denis committed to in 2009 still guide DG Consulting today.
DG Consulting offers diverse professional experience, particularly in the governance and executive management of water utility and natural resource management organisations. This experience includes being influential in contemporary Australian water reform, particularly in Victoria, but also within the Murray-Darling Basin and at a national level. DG Consulting also has well established relationships with a range of like-minded, expert consulting colleagues with complementary skills. This provides the scope to assemble high performing, multi-disciplinary teams to tackle complex assignments.
