Who is LiquidGold Consultants

LiquidGold Consultants is a specialist consulting firm, dedicated to assist family enterprises in tackling the difficult issues of succession, next generation education and integration, governance and communication. 

Our clients are mostly based in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria and either have family offices or active businesses. (If you are not sure whether we might be able to assist you in your location or with your specific issue or structure please make sure to contact us to find out - we are always up for a chat)

To help our diverse clients (every family is unique after all), we create unique solutions, using customised strategies and suitable structures to create better family cohesion, communication, governance and focus.

At LiquidGold Consultants, the support we provide to family enterprises is not just work, it is what we live for.

We commit to working with you as true partners for the future.
