Our Team and Expertise

The company's basic expertise stemmed from its founder's experimentation with various companies as part of the learning experience while qualifying in Economics, Accounting and Law at Sydney University. One research company he founded was in market research winning a contract to conduct reader attitudes prior to the formulation of The Australian National Newspaper. P J Nelson & Co. was requisitioned to provide advice to other small business start-ups and also contracted to provide policy advice to a number of different political parties. Peter Nelson then qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Price Waterhouse in Sydney and established Nelson & Co., Chartered Accountants alongside the earlier consulting company. The company was fortunate enough to obtain one major client ready to accept Peter's out of the box ideas which allowed him to expand the company considerably by horizontal and vertical diversification. Following that success he went off-shore joining selected specialists working on international assignments, first in Africa with the United Nations and the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the UN, then with the Asian Development Bank, World Bank, and the European Union before returning to Sydney and Nelson Wheeler Chartered Accountants

The company now has extensive experience in Project Management, Public Financial Management, Policy and Sectoral Analysis, Business Development, Corporate Valuation and Restructuring, Corporate Acquisitions, Public Sector Reform, SME Development, Financial Management, Change Management, Corporate Governance, Capacity Building, Trade facilitation, as well in Training. One major focus in now on  identification of new innovations specifically in Science and Technology and as has always been the company's expertise, helping entrepreneurs to bring their ideas to the market. This fits in with trying to promote a more sustainable earth where the company was a pioneer pursuing emission reduction and climate resilience -  and as they say, the rest is history...


Starting a consulting company from scratch alongside a Chartered Accounting practice required developing negotiating skills quickly. It also meant taking whatever client problems came along. Often this was when other avenues had been tried without success. This developed a reputation for problem solving and getting the job done. It also ensured that to sustain one's reputation, it was about achieving success rather than charging but even when jobs were done at a considerable loss, the benefit was in recognition that end result would be success.

Challenge makes everything worth while and the company is always looking for new ways to utilise its experience...
