• Dr Elisa Palazzo - Senior Lecturer – Landscape Architecture and Urban Design, University of Adelaide

    “Dear Moogy and Dawn,
    I’ve just had Moogy here in my living room, live in TV from England, where he was, for the return to the country ceremony. I felt touched to hear the news and very proud to know you both. Thank you very much for your work and to have had the time to share time and experience with us, at the school of architecture. The trip in Port Augusta went very well this year, the outcomes very interesting. We had more participants from the Aboriginal community and everybody was very interested to know about our work. Hope we can continue the collaboration with you all also in the future. Looking forward to show you the results.”

  • Emma Bray - Pinky and Peet Feedback


    Yes I received it [Pinky and Peet book] and it is great. I’ll use it to have a discussion about author’s intent and target audience and then have my students make their own book about an Australian endangered animal with a narrative in the front and a report at the end.



  • Rae Plush - Pinky and Peet Feedback

    Thank you for the gorgeous [Pinky and Peet the Little Aussie Bush Lizards] books – absolutely love them 🙂

    thank you Rae x

  • Yvonne - Pinky and Peet Feedback

    Hello Dawn,

    Thank you for your email – we received “Pinky and Peet” the very next day after placing the order – what amazing service!!  We have both enjoyed reading and learning about the pygmy bluetongue lizards.

    Kind regards Yvonne

  • Daniel Head - Director of Marist Mission, Sacred Heart College Senior School

    Hi Dawn.

    Today was fantastic and the feedback from staff and students has been very positive. Please pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to Major Sumner. Many thanks again for your help.

  • Professor Mike Bull - School of Biological Sciences, Flinders University

    Dawn has provided consistently high quality support over more than two years in developing a strong local community commitment to a major conservation program. Her strength has been developing and maintaining the complex links among the researchers, the government agencies and the various community groups.

  • Fiona Tran - Diversity & Inclusiveness Coordinator, Ernst & Young

    Hi Dawn, Thank you so much for organising [the Welcome to Country and Information Sessions for our Melbourne and Adelaide offices]. It has been such a pleasure working with you in the past month.

  • Kerry Schubert - Manager - Centacare Catholic Family Services, Country SA, Diocese of Port Pirie

    Hi Dawn, I am glad you enjoyed your time with us in Ceduna., thank you for coming. I have had very positive feedback from staff regarding your presentation and they all enjoyed their day. Again, than you for delivering our training and it really will make a difference to developing our team.

  • Trevor Berry - The Old Timers Mine - Coober Pedy

    I have had the pleasure of meeting Dawn when I attended the Employer Awareness training in Coober Pedy. I found Dawn’s presentation very professional. Dawn made the presentation fun – that helps in us understanding the topic. Her knowledge and preparation for the program enabled us to look at how we handle the topic. I would recommend Dawn of Emu Consulting as I know she will deliver what is expected from any training course she undertakes.”

  • Anonymous Attendee

    Thanks to coming to Roxby Downs to provide this training opportunity [Employer Awareness Training]. I look forward to attending similar sessions in the future.

  • Amanda - General Practice SA Inc. Staff Member

    I can’t stress how much I enjoyed this session [Aboriginal Cultural Awareness]. Moogie [Major Sumner] was an inspiration – very knowledgeable and generous in sharing. Loved the smoking ceremony. Thanks.

  • Jacki Shaw - Crisis Intervention & Intake Worker - The Salvation Army Community Services

    Hi Dawn, I must let you know that the training you presented [Collaboration in Practice] was very enjoyable and reinforced (what I think are normal practices) that we are trying to move in the right direction for the best possible outcomes for our clients.

  • Simon Cooper - Adelaide Hills Land Manager

    Emu Consulting recently assisted me in gathering information on developing an orchard feasibility plan. I was very impressed with Dawn’s commitment, co-ordination and follow-up. It is obvious Dawn loves helping people and working in a range of natural resource management areas. Thank you Dawn.

  • Dr Jonathan Sobels - School of the Environment Flinders University

    I have been fortunate to have Dawn deliver a number of lectures to two undergraduate topics in the last three years. She has given students relevant, timely insights into the world of environmental management, particularly the ways in which people can overcome difference and work cooperatively. She has access to invaluable relationships with Aboriginal groups in South Australia which is increasingly important to the holistic management of our environment. I value her knowledge, her experience and her effective communication with my students. Dawn makes a contribution to graduates who are more engaged and skillful environmental managers.

  • Peter Allen - Chairperson - APOMA

    The community of Andamooka (800 people) is not under any Local Government or Council jurisdiction and is ‘run’ entirely by an elected group of dedicated volunteers and two part time employees, through the APOMA Office. We here at APOMA (Andamooka Progress & Opal Miners Association) have for the past 12 months used Emu Consulting for a variety of tasks, including community consultancy and in the undertaking of the development plans to justify the employment of a Community Development Manager through various Government channels. In that time and with these set criterions in mind we have found Emu Consulting to be exemplary in all that they have undertaken on our behalf here at APOMA and can highly recommend them for the professional expertise that they offer.

  • Beth Christensen - Community Development Coordinator - CAFE Enfield Children’s Centre for Early Childhood Development and Parenting

    Dawn and Moogy, Thanks so much for your involvement in our community event. The Smoking Ceremony was greatly enjoyed by all the attendees. It was great to see the children following Moogy around as he carried out the ceremony.” Also, thank you so much for your other assistance at the launch last week. It was great to be able to relax and enjoy the event knowing that you had the photos and video covered.

  • Professor Andrew Beer - The University of Adelaide (Formerly Flinders University)

    Emu Consulting has the expertise, competence and drive to complete major projects, while retaining the capacity to meet a diverse range of small project needs. Its professionalism, dynamism and capacity is bettered by none.

  • Sharon and Filippo Sisto - Auburn Business Operators

    My husband and I are in the process of gaining a liquor licence, for a small business venture we have. Dawn at Emu Consulting has assisted us with the procedure. We are very pleased with her services; she has been prompt, efficient and very reassuring when obstacles have arisen and has gone out of her way to rectify the obstacles in a very professional way. We would highly recommend her services, especially when dealing with Government departments.

  • Lynne Walden - General Manger - Northern and Yorke Natural Resources Management Board

    Dawn, Thank you for your reliable and timely development of communication products for the Board. We appreciate your ability to interpret and expand on information we provide to you. Your creativity enables the Board to present complex natural resources management information in an easy to understand manner to our many stakeholders.
