Anaiwan Advisory

Delivering Sound Commercial Outcomes

About Us

Anaiwan Advisory is a 100% Aboriginal and Veteran owned, operated and led commercial firm. Our founding Director is a proud Aboriginal man from the Anaiwan tribe, whose traditional territory spans the Northern Tablelands in New South Wales. Our purpose is to enable meaningful change in the commercial, procurement and legal sectors by providing our customers with a true partnership, thought leadership and experience of over 40 years of public and private sector experience. 


We believe that meaningful change happens when it is created by Aboriginal people, not for Aboriginal people. Our desire to create this firm reflects our belief in the rights of our communities to determine their own futures.
