Sophie Lieberman Consulting provides strategic and creative thinking that builds impact and delivers public value.

I bring 20 years of experience, intellect, and innovation to thinking and doing in the complex environment of contemporary organisations, I have deep, domain-specific expertise in Arts leadership and governance, cultural strategy and planning, precincts and placemaking, engagement and partnerships.

Clients engage me to extend and enhance organisational capabilities and increase influence and impact - from leading strategic and cultural planning, to developing white papers and cases for support; coaching leadership teams for purpose, to facilitating board strategy.

Past appointments include Director, Public, Education and Industry Programs, ACMI; Head of Programs, Sydney Living Museums; Manager, Science Communication, Australian Museum; and, numerous board and committee roles.

I hold a PhD in history at UNSW, interrogating the politics of the built landscape and national identity; I’m an alum of the Sydney Leadership Program and AICD.
