Lindsay Bridger

Bootcamp Coach 19&20 April

Lindsay has been running her own businesses in empowering people and organisations for over 11 years. Her focus has been to help individuals, teams and organisations to understand the principles of psychology, neuroscience and wellbeing and how to translate these principles into training initiatives designed to help people achieve what matters most to them.


Her career started in hospitality and then on graduating into Organisational and Environmental Psychology. Here her focus was on supporting organisations to create organisational cultures and initiatives that supported the wellbeing of their employees, supporting them to perform and thrive in a balanced way, while achieving high performance results.


From there Lindsay took her psychology background and applied it into Business to Business Sales where she worked as a Business Development Manager and then was asked to take on the role of training the National Sales Team due to her outstanding sales record. It was at this point in Lindsay’s career where she fell in love with training as a vehicle to achieve her purpose of enabling others through mindsets, skillsets and toolsets. She branched out and started Bridging Performance a training consulting company designed to bridge the gap in capability and performance in areas of trust, leadership, productivity, presentation presence and personal effectiveness.


Her second training consulting company In8 Resilience developed out of a realisation Lindsay had at how many people over the last 2 years have been struggling to be resilient in an ever changing and tough environment.  Lindsay noticed that people were needing to develop their resilience in order to feel empowered to deal with what life was challenging them with. It is now her life purpose to make a more resilient world through practical strategies that anyone can leverage.
