Our story

For nearly 30 years, BRIDGE has been supporting senior leaders from some of the largest brands develop the skills and mindsets they need to help their organisations grow and thrive.

BRIDGE was founded by two undergraduates at the University of Cambridge in 1990. They were focused on the future leaders that they and their fellow undergraduates wanted to become. They also wanted to open their hearts and minds to sides of life that most Cambridge graduates hadn’t encountered.​

They asked their peers to get involved in changing the lives of children and young adults who were living on the edge of society. These experiences inspired many to lead powerfully and courageously. Since then BRIDGE has continued to find immersive and creative ways of helping transform the mindsets and behaviours of leaders. Our learning journeys are transformative and life-changing.

In addition to our consultancy, we also have a not-for-profit arm called The Bridge Institute which exists to take this work to the hardest places to solve seemingly impossible challenges.

When you work with me, you get someone who understands the pressures you face to deliver great results in the face of complex challenges—because I’ve been there.

I have a knack for helping teams to uncover where they’re stuck, both in their business and in their team dynamics, and then to develop the breakthrough ideas and make the individual and team shifts it will take to get unstuck and move rapidly in the direction they want to go.

Pete Green

My purpose is creating workplaces that we would be happy for our children to work in.

Others talk about “illuminating the extraordinary” – I believe that I do the opposite! What I mean by that is that I regularly shine a light on the ‘ordinary’ – the little things that we habitually do day-to-day. In doing so, I notice that occasionally extraordinary things happen either within or outside of a person or people. This can lead to extraordinary outcomes or organisational performance. I believe that it is by illuminating the ordinary that the extraordinary emerges.

If you work with me you get over 30 years’ business experience. You get the real, fallible me, not the guy that was trying to prove himself 15 years ago. You will also get a commitment to do my best in service of what you want and need.

My intention is to lead alongside others to partner and build trust that allows us to discuss what really matters. I don’t always get it right but I’m always willing to have the conversation about how we can do this better. The nature of our work, at its best, is healthily disruptive. Personally this has taught me that wisdom comes from everyone, and to be patient, its there.

It is a privilege to work with leaders as they get clear on what is really important to them and what they lead for. As the individuals unfold so does the organisation. There are some incredible moments when people come together for something great and start to see the world differently.

My personal purpose is to enable and witness human unfolding.

My intention is to lead alongside others to partner and build trust that allows us to discuss what really matters. I don’t always get it right but I’m always willing to have the conversation about how we can do this better. The nature of our work, at its best, is healthily disruptive. Personally this has taught me that wisdom comes from everyone, and to be patient, its there.

It is a privilege to work with leaders as they get clear on what is really important to them and what they lead for. As the individuals unfold so does the organisation. There are some incredible moments when people come together for something great and start to see the world differently.

Pete Green

My purpose is creating workplaces that we would be happy for our children to work in.

Others talk about “illuminating the extraordinary” – I believe that I do the opposite! What I mean by that is that I regularly shine a light on the ‘ordinary’ – the little things that we habitually do day-to-day. In doing so, I notice that occasionally extraordinary things happen either within or outside of a person or people. This can lead to extraordinary outcomes or organisational performance. I believe that it is by illuminating the ordinary that the extraordinary emerges.

If you work with me you get over 30 years’ business experience. You get the real, fallible me, not the guy that was trying to prove himself 15 years ago. You will also get a commitment to do my best in service of what you want and need.

Prior to joining BRIDGE I spent 15 years in Corporate HR with General Electric and PepsiCo. Always fascinated by relationship dynamics and seeing my purpose often as the ‘navigator and truth teller’, I was drawn to Commercial HR roles at PepsiCo, where the difference in performance was more often than not created by leaders’ capacity to bring others together and create new way of thinking. As my interest in leadership and development grew, my final role with PepsiCo was European Head of Talent where I was accountable for the succession of their Executive positions.
