Our Team


Bridgford Consultancy has successfully supported clients with people development since 1999. Our team of consultants and associates have experience in different sectors and specialisms.

Our specialisms are leadership development, change management, communication skills, customer service and team effectiveness. Find out more about our virtual classroom and executive coaching which complements or may even replace more traditional face to face learning programmes.

We work directly with clients, developing and delivering effective and innovative people development solutions. We are determined our programmes will be relevant and meaningful, not only for the organisation but also the participants. Value for money is a guiding principle.

Principal Consultant, Diana, and her associates have extensive experience working for the EEF (Engineering Employer’s Federation), Hemsley Fraser, Energy and Utility Skills and the CMI (Chartered Management Institute), delivering open catalogue courses, bespoke training and CMI accredited management qualifications.

We are members of professional bodies – CIPD, CMI, Institute of Hospitality – and have accreditations with TAP (Training Accreditation Programme), BPS (British Psychological Society) for psychometric testing, ITOL (Institute of Training & Occupational Learning) for brain friendly trainer programmes, and the Learning & Performance Institute for COLF (Certified On-line Facilitation).

We offer accreditation to Level B by the British Psychological Society to interpret 16PF5, Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Firo B as well as accreditation for the SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory) which provides fantastic insights in leadership, influencing skills and team development.

Most of all, we have a passion for delivering exceptional customer service. We are proud of Bridgford Consultancy’s accreditation with EEIAS as a Gold Approved Provider.

This was the most effective and useful training I have ever attended. It still has a big effect on how I approach my work. Diana and her colleagues were excellent as trainers.
