About us

We’re Darzin Software. Simply Stakeholders is our second product. Our first, called Darzin, is the world’s most powerful and sophisticated stakeholder engagement solution.

We created Darzin back in 2004, and it’s still going strong. But over the years, a lot of people have told us they don’t need all the features Darzin offers; they simply want an elegant way to handle stakeholders.

So we created it: Simply Stakeholders.

Simply Stakeholders gives you the refined stakeholder engagement features you need, but without the complexity.

Where Darzin is for the big end of town (teams that have the time and resources to handle a lot of complexity), Simply Stakeholders is for anyone who wants to get the job done quickly and easily.

Without stress, without a mess of spreadsheets, and without a big budget or the support of a big team.

Our history

Simply Stakeholders is built on nearly 30 years’ industry experience.
Our founder and director, Allison Hendricks, has a stakeholder engagement track record as long as your arm – all the way back to 1990. She’s an engineer and an MBA, and she’s worked for some of the biggest names in the business, including Lend Lease, Sinclair Knight Merz and Manidis Roberts Consultants. She’s also been a committee member for International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Australasia.

The rest of our team have pedigrees to match. We now employ stakeholder engagement specialists in offices in Australia, UK, Brazil and China, with vast experience across all industry sectors, including experience in health, energy, mining, infrastructure, utilities, education, government (all levels), transport, oil and gas.

And since 2004, we’ve worked with some of world’s foremost brands, including Glencore, Ausgrid, New Zealand Transport Agency, Queensland Department of State Development, Worksafe Victoria, Infrastructure Victoria, National Disability Insurance Agency, Westmead Hospital, Shell, Hydro, Rail Projects Victoria, Melbourne City Council, Queensland Health, Bristol University, Vattenfall, Wales West Utilities and Barwon Water.
