'An alternative, innovative and non-traditional approach'

The Bridge International is a non-traditional Management Consulting Team operating in Australia, New Zealand, UK and North America with deep practitioner experience within Financial Services.

We pride ourselves on being practitioners working across financial services organisations and disruptive start-ups. Our team are experienced executives and senior leaders that have worked successfully in business rather than career consultants.


Our Services

The team has expertise across General and Commercial Insurance to help build out strategy, benchmark best practice capabilities and solution design across the value chain.


The Bridge International has highly skilled and qualified executives with hands-on experience to provide advice across the value chain and support organisational transformation.

Our co-founders have worked in financial services for over 50 years, including Insurance. This is complemented by the deep capabilities and expertise of the broader management consulting team, who have experience across most industries.  


We will share our learnings of what has worked and what hasn't and help you in the heavy lifting of operationalising the solutions. We have international case studies from start-ups to large organisational change programs.
