Real Stories from Real Clients

I’m extremely grateful for Sarah’s efforts to govern and de-risk the transition of the Navy’s $10B warship program toward Final Operational Capability. Fighting through some considerable headwinds, Sarah mobilised a great team and harnessed exceptional personal drive, perseverance and professionalism.
RAN Director Surface Combatants.

I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah and her team at ADROITA. It is absolutely clear that Sarah is well known and very well respected in the Defence community first with the Navy, but also the Army, Air Force and Border Force. Sarah will continue to be a key advisor to GME in building and actioning its Defence procurement strategy.
Director, GME Pty Ltd.

I truly believe your services matter to the SME space and defence, and if sovereign capability can be developed as imagined, that is a great vehicle for social impact through more meaningful and skilful work for everyday Australians.
General Manager, LA Services

There is no chance that we would have been able to achieve such extensive quality outcomes in such a short space of time without our partnership with ADROITA. Among our achievements has been to successfully position our first ever defence contract, a process we had found very challenging to even know how to commence. I cannot recommend ADROITA highly enough.
