Mike O'Reilly is a Registered Political Lobbyist in South Australia and has positive contacts within all sides of the political spectrum. He has the rare benefit of having appeared before a Parliamentary Select Committee investigating government procurement standards, in which he fully satisfied the committee of MPs of his company's financial and professional credibility.

Over the years he has advised individuals and companies, even legal businesses, on their need to perform honestly and openly in this high pressure political environment where no lawyers are permitted - and where 'no comment' can see you held 'under guard' for showing contempt to parliament!
