ORIGINS OF THE BRIDGE

After working on numerous tender processes responding to the New Zealand Government’s wellbeing and social procurement agenda, George Hulbert and Scott Jacobs decided to form The Bridge.

​George and Scott are passionate about helping organisations to:

  • Adapt to the New Zealand Government's agenda, including under MBIE’s Broader Outcomes Framework

  • Align with it - and prove your alignment through action

  • Achieve more as a result: do well, do good, and do better.
