Kate Bridgeman from Strategy Collective
When you meet Kate Bridgeman, she instantly makes you feel at ease. That’s probably a good thing when she is one of Strategy Collectives People and Culture Consultants. West End Precinct sits down and finds out a bit more about Kate, learning that she’s not one to shy away from a wine.
