HANA DICKINSON – Founder and MD

Hana Dickinson started her career in The City, gaining valuable business and marketing experience before setting up The Bridge in 2011, a hard-worker with a great sense of humour and a practical, honest approach (and possibly a little less tact than would be ideal).

Hana looks after the strategy for all our clients, as a sound strategist, she has introduced and rolled out commercially savvy marketing plans for numerous businesses across a multitude of sectors. She has a spooky skill for spotting opportunities and helping our clients to build valuable business connections.

Don’t be fooled by the humorous, informal demeanour and overt love of beer – she cuts through the noise to help our clients to stay focused and communicate effectively with their target markets to achieve their business objectives.

HAYLEY SHAVE – Director

With a degree in Business & Marketing, Hayley has gained a wealth of experience and skills across numerous sectors including telecoms, transport & logistics, education and has created and managed a very successful charity.

Hayley is a favourite with our clients (and our team). She is responsible, unflappable and diligent, with excellent communication skills and attention to detail. She is a champion plate-spinner and has a wicked sense of humour lurking beneath her kind and gentle manner.

Hayley is one of the most friendly, efficient and adaptable people in the market. If you work with us just to work with Hayley, you won’t regret it.  She also occasionally brings Buddy the sausage dog into the office, do you need any other excuse to pop in?!
