About us

locale consulting Emma Broomfield and Steve Thompson creating positive outcomes for regional communities

Our story

We are not traditional consultants – we are solution-focused problem solvers and creative idea generators. Our end game is contributing to more vibrant and prosperous places for us all to enjoy.

Our small and dynamic team is headed up by husband and wife duo, Steve Thompson and Emma Broomfield. First established on the NSW South Coast, where Emma and Steve were starting their family life together, they had a vision to provide a niche consultancy with a focus on working with the local government sector. Since then, we have established a reputation for our down-to-earth, community-centred approach and have had the privilege of working across over 40 local government areas in NSW.

Now based in Woolgoolga on the NSW mid-north coast, we continue to be inspired by the diversity of the people and places in our beautiful regional areas. We understand the 
nuances of living regionally and we work side-by-side with our 
clients to improve our communities.
