Company Overview

The Bridge International is a non-traditional management consulting practice established six years ago based in Australia, New Zealand and North America with deep client-side experience.


We operate across multiple sectors from financial services, energy, retail and government including start-ups and not for profits.


We pride ourselves on being practitioners: successful executives and subject matter experts who have worked in business, rather than career consultants.


It’s our experience combined with our team’s varied backgrounds that brings diversity of expertise and insight, which helps us ensure our approach is always fit for purpose, agile and pragmatic, delivering real solutions that translate into action.

Our Bridge Triple Play Philosophy ensures that you always get the whole picture – culture, customer and commercials.


We know the power of executional excellence and true embedment. We don’t just hand

over our findings and walk away, we deliver executional plans that drive sustained value.

Build enterprise value by focusing on the P&L and key priorities
