“Kerry is an impeccable and energetic facilitator and expert communicator; she and her team are exceptionally skilled at synthesizing complex conversations, data, and other feedback into legible, aspirational, and actionable strategy. They are just the kind of people you want on your side when you’re working with diverse organizational stakeholders in crafting strategy. I find myself constantly referring other colleagues to Bridgeport.”

Jim Leija

Deputy Director for Public Experience and Learning, U-M Museum of Art

“Bridgeport dove in with enthusiasm and helped me scope the project to my budget (and to my aggressive timeline) with precision and speed. All members of our team felt completely at ease during interviews and group discussions, and as a result brought their best, candid commentary to the table. We were extremely pleased with our ‘finished product’ that was delivered on time and on budget. For me personally, they turned a challenging project into a pleasure!”

Amy Louise Liedel

Senior Director for Guest Operations, The Henry Ford

“With integrity, keen insight, and good humor, Bridgeport Consulting has consistently delivered for me on time and on budget! Kerry and Brittany are my go-to partners for holistic change leadership, effective team engagement, and comprehensive project management. They bring clarity, objectivity, and creativity to every engagement!”

Nancy Penberthy

Executive Director of Resource Planning & Management, U-M Office of Research

“Partnering with Bridgeport helped me put a structure around our strategic planning process and their wisdom and experience helped me to focus on the salient parts, knowing where there was opportunity for refinement and for growth. Their leadership and guidance kept me on task and we would not have gotten this project done without them.”

Kaaren Williamsen

Director, U-M SAPAC

“Brittany facilitated our faculty retreat, guiding us through our hard questions to find resolutions, compromises and paths forward that were beyond what we had hoped. Her pre-program preparation was exceptional and her post-event follow up summary was so thoughtfully prepared that it formed the basis for our departmental review documents. We will definitely ask for her again!”

Mary Oriordan & Denise Kirschner

Professors, U-M Microbiology & Immunology

“Two things impressed me about our work with Bridgeport: deep preparation, and gifted facilitation. The amount of work that the team spends in learning about the culture of the organization they are trying to help is unparalleled. They then work closely with leadership to ensure that the most important questions are asked during each session, and they manage the conversations skillfully, bringing about the ideas and solutions that will move the organization forward.”

Raj Mangrulkar

Associate Dean, U-M Medical School

“Kerry and her team bring their core values to bear in all their work, brilliantly combining rigor with fun, excellence with humility – and their positive “we got this” energy is simply infectious. Facilitating a strategic planning process for a college of over 20,000 people in 8 months is an ambitious undertaking (to say the least). Kerry and her team were the right people to help us get there with clarity of vision, impeccable organization, and a genuine sense of play and joy.”

Anne Curzan

Dean, U-M College of LSA

“Anica and Francine came well recommended and they delivered above and beyond my high expectations. The result was a strategic plan that reflects the input of a broad set of contributors and balances the aspirational with the attainable. In addition to their competence and valuable experience, they are a great pleasure to work with!”

Emy Brawley

Associate Director, The Conservation Fund

“Anica and Francine brilliantly organized our board’s strategic planning sessions around what they heard in their interviews with directors and staff. They listen well and value the diversity of our experience, perspectives, and personalities. It truly is a pleasure to work with Bridgeport Consulting.”

Paul Hillegonds

CEO, Michigan Health Endowment Fund

“My team eagerly anticipates our strategy sessions with Bridgeport. Besides being high-level professionals, they also have a heart for our mission and are people of the highest integrity and compassion. Their mix of “head and heart” have made them perfect to work with Gleaners.”

Gerry Brisson

President & CEO, Gleaners Community Food Bank

“Whenever we have a project that requires meaningful and inspired community engagement, my first thought is – call Bridgeport. We’ve worked with Kerry and Brittany on multiple community and construction oriented projects. In local government, making progress toward a community vision means an inclusive public process and their community-led engagement gives me confidence in our process and direction.”

Joe Gacioch

City Manager, City of Ferndale

“Kerry and the team at Bridgeport have expertly shepherded the Chelsea District Library through two strategic planning processes (they are so good that we keep coming back!). With experience, warmth, insight, and humor, they facilitated the creation of thoughtful, responsive, and actionable roadmaps for library service to our community. We are a better library, thanks to Bridgeport!”

Lori Coryell

Director, Chelsea District Library
