USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) held the Navy’s first Bridge Talks event in April, 2017.

The Bridge is COMPACFLT’s initiative that amplifies an organic Navy network to enable collaboration and idea generation by advancing education, enabling empowerment, stimulating connections, and spurring transition. Success of The Bridge does not hinge on a series of successful ideas, but the ability to create and sustain a culture of change, inspiration, and creativity.

In its simplest form, The Bridge is a belief and a commitment; the belief that the best idea can come from anywhere, and a commitment that no Sailor is ever alone in pursuing a solution.

One idea can be the bridge between imagination and reality. Let us help you bring your deckplate idea to life.
