Innovation Consulting Firms aren’t normally focused on 

People + Process.

We Are


We provide guidance, tools and training so you can achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Discover innovative solutions

Work creatively and confidently through any situation you face together.

Navigate change and uncertainty

Be confident as you navigate through the inevitable challenges and opportunities that come up.

Become better collaborators

Transform how you engage stakeholders. Build winning relationships and deliver outstanding results.

What Strategic Challenge Do You Need Solved Right Away?

Have you noticed how the world of business is moving so fast that it brings unique challenges to leaders and their teams?

Ever wonder why some teams excel through challenging circumstances and others get completely paralyzed by them?

Our founder did too.

The ThinkUP Innovation Framework™ is her approach and toolkit that has helped teams transform how they operate, navigate change, and deliver outstanding results.

If change and uncertainty has become your new normal, you need innovative solutions to your business challenges.

We believe that every leader should be empowered and equipped so that they always know the next steps for their team.

At BridgePoint Effect we know that you want to lead a powerful team that can work through any situation you face together.


In order to do that, your team needs the confidence that they always know what to do and how to accomplish it.

BridgePoint Effect understands the pressure a leader and their team face each day. We provide guidance tools and training so that you collaborate to achieve more than your ever thought possible.

Here’s how we do it:

1. Schedule a Consultation Call

We will listen to what you’re working through and help you figure out the next best steps.

Execute a Winning Strategy

We’ll create and execute a customized strategy for your team.

Get the Results you Need

See results immediately as you move forward with competence and confidence.

BridgePoint Effect is an organizational development and innovation strategy firm.

We believe that change and innovation go hand-in-hand. All innovation produces change; all change needs innovative approaches to make it happen. Both need people to collaborate and think better together.

We help leaders and their teams overcome the uncertainty, ambiguity and risk in innovation.

We teach them how to be creative thinkers and problem solvers, unafraid of the complexity and challenges they face.

We facilitate thinking and show them how to move ideas, solutions, and the changes these create, through the organization, all while respecting the hierarchy, people and systems in place.

We specialize in strategy creation and achieving outcome driven innovation—tackling important challenges, leveraging creativity and the development of innovation skills in organizations.

We are strategic planning facilitators, creative change leaders, and designers and trainers of high impact creativity and innovation training programs.

We’re unlike other innovation consulting firms.

We won’t sell you a big expensive study using junior consultants to tell you what you want to hear, or academic, theoretical things about how you should approach innovation or manage change.

We’re not the people you should hire if you want to run a design thinking session because you think it’s sexy and everyone else is doing it.

Please, find someone else to do your 1-day training, team building event, motivational speech, hackathon or brainstorming session that you’re obligated to do. They will do it more cheaply than us, you’ll feel good that you crossed it off your list, and everything will stay the same.

Still here? GREAT!!! You’re exactly the kind of person we want to work with.

You’ve got grit; you’re willing to make the investment in change.

You want to change and improve things. You want to have positive impact in your world. You want to inspire and equip your people to create new value for your organization, your customers and stakeholders.

And you’re willing to invest in doing it.

You see the challenges you face, what’s over the horizon, that there are many possible solutions and more than one way to skin a cat to get you the one thing you’re sure of: you need results.

You need to change things, rise above complexity, and overcome constraints. You want to build for the future and you want to do a better job rolling with the punches today.

You need a way to bridge from where you are to where you want to be, and you need to think differently to get there.

You need the BridgePoint Effect.
