About Us

Four Pillars Consulting contributes to community sustainability through research, training and evaluation services. Our name refers to the four pillars of sustainability: society, environment, culture and economy.

Established in early 2005, Four Pillars Consulting works with government and not for profit agencies, developing organisational and policy strategies that improve community wellbeing. Four Pillars Consulting brings together the expertise of Dr Jo Barraket and Mr Robert Handelsmann, along with a number of associates with whom we work on specific projects. Our team holds qualifications in social science, adult education, communications, environmental management, business and linguistics. Our combined experience spans community engagement, social and public policy research, information systems management, program evaluation, not for profit management, and professional education and training.
