Clean Energy Council (CEC)
We were looking for someone to drive a fresh approach to strategy development that would challenge our thinking, create positive energy and deliver a roadmap for our future.
Hinterland delivered with lots of creative thinking, fresh and energetic style and plenty of stimulating leadership.
I would recommend Hinterland to anyone who is looking for something different, to be stimulated and challenged in pursuit of a bigger strategy and purpose.

To create big change in the world, we need to think outside the box. Hinterland really helped us think differently.
I would recommend Hinterland to any organisation facing big, complex challenges and who need to shake things up!
States of Change
Hinterland worked with States of Change to design and deliver an immersive 6 month learning experience for two large cohorts of public servants from across Australia and New Zealand.
Hinterland brought not only considerable subject matter expertise on design and innovation; they also brought incredible warmth, patience and generosity to the learning experience. It was a genuine pleasure for facilitators and learners alike.
We've worked with a bevy of great clients.
Our projects have been mentioned in...
And our work has received global recognition.
We take an interdisciplinary approach grounded in human-centred design and systems thinking.
Hope is a verb with its sleeves rolled up.
We believe in taking a stance, getting involved, and building alternatives.
Our liberation is bound up together.
"If you have come to help me you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” - Aboriginal activists, 1970s.
Start with a mindful pause.
We believe in moving from a place of strength, possibility, and kindness, not from fear or 'not-enough-ness'.
We continually seek outside inspiration, always reflect on how we can improve, and believe in cross-pollinating insights from our partners.
Longer tables, not higher walls.
In a culture that valorises a ruthless individuality, kindness and generosity can be radical acts.
