1. Responsible Business Practice
With leadership comes responsibility. We are meticulous in our approach to the ethical ethos and business practice of prospective clients because the trust we have earned across the entire Australian political landscape is an asset we value. Everything we do is designed to generate positive economic and societal outcomes that still meet commercial imperatives for government and our clients.
2. Trust and Transparency
Everyone on the Cornerstone team is passionate about the work they do for every client, on every project. Each and every one of us has backgrounds based in eclectic ambitions to change society for the better. Out of hours this is put into practice as we actively contribute to the communities we value being a part of.
3. Social Responsibility
We never lose sight of the fact that the achievements we help produce for our clients and the positive outcomes we strive for have direct flow-on effects, often for those who don’t have the political voice or capabilities to call for change. Better care of those in our society who need help the most means a better society for us all.
4. Professional Standards
Leaving the world a better place is not a platitude. It’s a fundamental requirement because the alternative is a stark reality. We fully comprehend the environmental and sustainability impacts of the outcomes our clients are looking to achieve and we factor that into the planning, directives and actions we instigate.
In local, state and federal arenas Cornerstone is at the forefront of helping organisations, enterprises, institutions and NFPs of all sizes achieve mutually beneficial legislative and public policy outcomes. This is a function of the broad experience, unique skill sets, track records and networking skills of the Cornerstone principals and the teams they lead.
The Cornerstone Group team
When partnering with Cornerstone, clients have access to unequalled advice from our bipartisan Advisory Board, which includes former Liberal and Labor government ministers, throughout all stages of a project’s development.
At the beginning of a project, Cornerstone will conduct a strategy workshop which will involve at least one advisory board member. The advisory member will assist in development of the overarching strategy, as well as provide ongoing advice on tactics and key areas central to the project.
