Brigitte brings intense experience of how government actually works, in distinction to how outsiders think it might work or should work.
She is a regular commentator for RNZ, NBR and NewsHub. She has a Bachelor of Laws from Victoria University of Wellington, a Masters of Law from the Australian National University, and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Counter Terrorism from the Interdisciplinary Centre (Herzliya, Israel).
Brigitte has been a Senior Ministerial Advisor in the New Zealand Government and spent years working across state and federal politics in Australia. She understands the levers that work, and don’t work, in the machinery of government.
‘I can’t think of any young New Zealand consultant with her kind of deep practical understanding of how voter campaigns work. She has accumulated knowledge of what really motivates leaders who have to sustain democratic support’ says Franks Ogilvie Principal, Stephen Franks.
‘We are excited to have Brigitte as part of the team. She brings to us for our clients unique insights into issue advocacy and strategic communications,’ says Franks Ogilvie Principal, Rob Ogilvie.
