Australia-based international business consultant specialising in government relations, corporate and public affairs, public relations, issues and crisis management, and international trade and investment

Based in Sydney, Australia, I am an internationally experienced business and communications consultant who has advised multinational corporations and national and state governments on a range of complex and sensitive issues. Within Australia I focus on government affairs, policy and regulatory matters, foreign investment, public relations, media relations, corporate affairs, and issues and crisis management. I also help companies doing business in China based on my two decades of experience working with the Peoples Republic of China, including being based in Beijing for 13 years. For a more detailed biography scroll down or visit my Linkedin profile via the link at the bottom of this page.


My guarantee to my clients is professionalism, experience and availability. The difference between Alistair Nicholas Consulting and a major public affairs or lobbying firm is I don't push work "down the pyramid" to inexperienced junior consultants. I make no bones about the fact that I am a one-person consultancy. When you engage Alistair Nicholas Consulting you are engaging me and I guarantee my time - including my profesionalism, experience and accessibility - on your account. You get my full attention.


I comply with the laws, regulations and codes of conduct of all federal, state and territory jurisdictions in which I operate, including listing of clients on relevant lobbyist registers, and with the Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme (FITS). For further information with regard to these, please see the Australian Government's Lobbying Code of Conduct and FITS.
