Who we are
As a boutique consulting firm located in Sydney, Iceni is a collaboration of experienced, like-minded professionals with significant experience working with government and organisations delivering public good outcomes. If you’re after tailored, highly perceptive management consultancy services with outcomes that are pragmatic, business focused and resoundingly successful, Iceni is the right fit for you.
At Iceni we’re a core team and a broader network of industry experts with a shared ethos. Projects delivering good public outcomes give purpose and meaning to our work, so we’re committed to working exclusively with government, public sector, and not-for-profit organisations and those delivering public good outcomes. As a client you’ll benefit from our wealth of experience in this specialised field.
And we make a point of sharing successful methodologies and applications from our previous projects across the sector to build capability in the industry – even if it costs us a future job.
We’re all aware that despite management consulting principles and methodologies being consistent across most industries and sectors, every organisation has its own particular nuances and complexities. The major difference with Iceni is our focus on taking time to gain an in-depth grasp of the different stakeholder perspectives in your organisation, right from the outset. We prefer to be embedded within your teams, so that we can fully understand the drivers and motivations of all concerned – included those affected by the outcomes. Our sensitive, insightful leadership will help empower your team members to achieve repeatable results, delivering outcomes of real and sustainable value.
We navigate through the complexity, to the tangible.
Deliverables that always meet your needs, and can be implemented.
We offer women opportunities to work at their full potential.
Bringing diversity into your team, and acting as advocates for gender equality.
We work from within our client’s team and build capability as our legacy.
Understanding of the nuances and subtleties of the operating environment, building client capability as our legacy.
We believe the most creative ideas are born from collaboration.
Identifying, building upon and showcasing the ideas of your intrapreneurs and collaborators.
We work with organisations who work for the community.
Providing resources driven by purpose and meaning.
Our name was inspired by our admiration for the vision and courage of Boudica, who in 60AD led her Iceni tribe in an uprising against the invading Roman army.
It’s no secret that women are under represented in senior government and consulting firms, right across Australia. At Iceni we have a policy of identifying opportunities for women, and seeking out potential high calibre candidates to fill these roles – either in a contracting capacity or as permanent employees. And as a women-owned business we’re committed to making sure that the barriers (either real or perceived) which hold women back in the workforce are non-existent in our organisation.
We are passionate about progressing the equality agenda for women from all cultures and backgrounds, and we believe strongly in embodying this within our organisation and the broader industry we work in.
Iceni have been extremely proud to work recently with the Sydney Women’s Fund to fund their Tamil Women’s Group project – a support group for Sri Lankan Tamil refugee women who are survivors of torture or trauma.
Our donation has funded the Tamil Women’s Group project in full, and will help to break the social isolation many of these women experience, and support their settlement in Australia and engagement with society.
As a result of our hugely positive experience with the Sydney Women’s Fund and our ongoing commitment to support the needs of women from all cultures and backgrounds, we have established the Iceni sub-fund of the Sydney Women’s Fund, and we look forward to making further positive contributions to the advancement of women through this initiative.

The work and deliverables from Iceni were of a very high standard and were favourably received by all key stakeholders. The Iceni team consistently displayed a high degree of professionalism and engaged effectively with all stakeholders … (They) made a valuable contribution to significant infrastructure programs throughout all phases of the project life cycle. Iceni were reliable and pragmatic in their approach and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them in future engagements.

I have found the Iceni team to be frank advisors, effective in delivering the outcomes sought and supportive when faced with challenges.
