What Our Clients Say...

We LOVE our clients and much of our business comes from word of mouth. 

So here is the word directly from the mouth's of both clients and colleagues:

Corporate Storytelling
     "Put simply Bridget is brilliant in her ability to take the words that you say and craft a story that really resonates with your audience.  Her persistence helps you refine your thoughts until you've got the best version of you and your message to deliver.  I have seen her do it with the Chief Medical Officer of a major NY hospital, (who then sealed a deal he'd been working on for 2 years!); I've seen her do it with a Board of Directors, (who had struggled for months to figure out how to tell the complex story of their company); and I've seen her do it with me.  I've never felt more confident and prepared to deliver a keynote than after working with Bridget."
--Kimberly Hartsfield, Chief Data Officer, TractManager, Dallas, TX

Sales Coaching

     "We have a great sales and service team.  But we sensed we could do better.  And our company message is very complex because it is largely built around data – the very thing that helps us beat our competitors.

 

Making the complex simple should be Bridget’s middle name.  She came in and helped each of our team members revamp their sales presentations, gave them tips and tricks for feeling more comfortable when they have to present to a group, and aided them in the construction of personal stories that tell the story of what our company does, but comes from a place of authenticity.  In so doing it makes the companies we pitch to understand we are solving a problem for them, not “selling” them.

In fact, at Bridget’s suggestion, we revamped our website, but even the marketing company struggled to find the right way to tell our story.  So I called Bridget.  She really understands who our customers are and how to tell our complex story in a manner that is consumable and compels companies to want to hire us.  That right there, speaks to the value of working with her."

--Kurt Harden, Chief Operating Officer, MedBen Analytics, Newark , OH
Public Speaking Coaching

     "Every speech you make is an investment in future business, so your content has to be memorable.  Bridget Brown will ensure your content is not only memorable, but that you deliver it in a way which  propels your career.   I have coached speakers alongside Bridget. I am impressed with her razor sharp approach to storytelling and her ability to turn ho-hum content into  memorable masterpieces.  When you place your speech in Bridget’s hands, you will become a powerful  speaker with memorable content worthy of a standing ovation.”

     “Bridget is the perfect coach for a presenter with a wealth of knowledge and a host of personal experiences. If you’re that person, you need Bridget.  Why? Because she’s a push-pull expert. She pushes you to hone, refine and distill your ideas.  She pushes you toward the message that will be most relevant to your audience.  Meanwhile, she pulls you toward the most powerful storyline possible.  She pulls you toward a rhythm and timing and sequencing that will ensure maximum impact.  In a nutshell, she coaches content, sequencing, and delivery in ways that ensure that YOU and your message shine through.”

TEDx Gateway Arch Ripple Effect, October, 2017

     "Throughout my career I have traveled all over the world, speaking to different organizations, elected officials and the public.  If you had asked me if I needed a public speaking coach, I would have asked you “why?”  But in preparation for my 2017 TEDx talk, Bridget Brown was assigned to work with me.  Some weeks after we began coaching, I was asked to speak at a U.S. Congressional briefing regarding the importance of museums to their communities.  Afterwards, I was pulled aside by a U.S. Senator who complimented me on how attention-grabbing my speech was (not something they often experience during these briefings!) Each of these opportunities to make a positive impression, can lead to doors opening and access to individuals that will allow us to advance our mission. 
 

     There was one reason for this success:  Bridget.  She taught me how to use story to my advantage – no matter what the occasion.  Whether asking for financial support or building strategic partnerships, stories help keep our audience engaged. After all, if the funders are listening, you have a better chance of getting the support you need to make a difference in your community.

     I still speak publicly to many different organizations all over the country, but I am a much more compelling speaker than I used to be because of Bridget Brown’s coaching. "
