“Rarely do you find a facilitator as authentic as Jake Bridges. I am privileged to have worked with Jake in various capacities over a number of years and in that time have witnessed him challenge his audience to grow as people. He has empowered them to influence others and question the unquestionable.
Jake’s ability to think on his feet is why people from large corporations, AFL Football Clubs and schools alike keep coming back to him. Jake ‘walks the talk’ and provides people with the tools required to better understand themselves and the world they live in.
I am delighted to call Jake Bridges a friend and truly do love working with him.”Don Elgin
