Reviews for Bridget's Programs
“Way more than a rock star - she is the whole rock band. Bridget is an outstanding speaker, high energy and engaging throughout her presentation. Bridget's messages are appealing for a variety of audiences. And she is cross-cultural - her message resonated strongly among Mexican audiences from Company Presidents to Top CGS CMO's."
"We invited Bridget to our Western European Management Conference and she delivered a fantastic keynote speech about the fastest growing consumer segment – the female consumer. Her excellent insights into marketing and selling to women contributed to passionate discussions amongst the participants. Her positive attitude and great energy definitely helped to deliver a memorable presentation. Simply excellent."
"Simply brilliant. Bridget's message is compelling and engaging, and full of important information. She leaves a lasting impression."
"I invited Bridget to one of my European Senior Leadership Team Meetings in order to raise awareness on “the most powerful consumer” and on “the female factor,” and she had a tremendous impact. Bridget intervened right after a session on gender balance, and her presentation had an amplifying effect. Both the content and the delivery were just outstanding, and a call to action."
"I recently read Bridget’s book “Why She Buys” and I enjoyed the message so much that I felt compelled to invite her to speak to my team and she did not disappoint. I was delighted to discover that Bridget speaks as powerfully and persuasively as she writes. Her vast knowledge of the female consumer gave my team valuable insights that we were able to apply to our business immediately."

Agaja Reddy, National Football League
"Bridget spoke at our NFL Consumer Products Summit with employees, licensees and retailers present. She was able to entertain and enlighten the audience through her preparation and execution of a great session with Erin Andrews. She discussed forces currently facing the marketplace including Covid, the pace of technology and women’s economic power. She was able to apply her research trends into actionable steps for our partners. We received several compliments on the session and were thrilled with Bridget’s performance."
The PGA of America
"Bridget's presentation to the global golf industry at the 60th PGA Merchandise Show was a home run! She was able to connect in a unique way with our largely male audience, allowing them to better understand the power and trends within the women's demographic, gender differences and how to translate those into action at the golf facility level in order to gain more share of her wallet."
"Bridget spoke for us as the closing speaker at the Barron's Independent Women Conference - a challenging position for any speaker - and she hit a home run! She was energetic and engaging, while providing valuable content for our audience. She took the time to understand the demographic she was speaking to, and her work certainly resonated with our audience. Her commitment and passion for her work shine through in her sessions, and we would certainly recommend her."
The Beer Institute
"Bridget Brennan was definitely one of the highlights of the Beer Institute’s Annual Membership Meeting in Milwaukee. The audience for the meeting included senior-level executives from the largest brewers and beer importers in the country, and her presentation was one of the most well-received parts of our meeting. Bridget provided thought-provoking data and insights that are useful to any industry or company with a goal of more effectively selling to women. She does her homework and will impress even some of the most hard-to-please audiences."
"Passionate. Engaging. Customized.
We hired Bridget to speak at our national senior leadership retreat. The relationship with Bridget from start to finish was professional, thoughtful, and truly enjoyable! She provided an amazing keynote presentation, incorporating our company goals, values, and mission. We will all be better business people because of what Bridget taught us. Her expertise is well worth the investment!"
"Bridget was an awesome and engaging keynote speaker. She is high energy and engages the audience throughout her presentation. You will not only leave her presentation motivated to improve your relationship-building skills, but ready for your business to thrive."
CRMC Retail Conference
"Bridget opened Day Two of our 700-person event, as our main keynoter. She was, hands down, the best-received presenter of the entire event. Her message was on target and delivered with her commanding yet friendly and humorous stage presence. Working with her and her team pre-event was also a pleasure. They made sure to reach out and schedule two conference calls, and contributed to our social media marketing efforts for our event. She would be a wonderful addition to just about any type of business gathering with her powerful message about women."
Nahdi Medical Company (The largest retailer in the Middle East)
"What an inspiring woman! Bridget delivered a keynote program and a workshop for our top leadership team during our annual conference in Abu Dhabi, UAE. She lit up the room with her engaging story and inspirational content (so much) that our leaders gave her a higher rating than our team activity on the world’s fastest rollercoaster at Ferrari World! I can’t imagine a greater testament to Bridget’s ability to command attention and engage an audience. Her work was so instrumental we invited her back to the same conference a year later to continue it. Bridget provides world-class content with extreme care for details and customization, and is a true partner who takes her clients’ success as seriously as her own. Hiring her for our events was one of the best decisions we ever made."
OmniShopper Conference, KNECT 365
"We were so impressed with Bridget that we hired her to keynote our conference two years in a row (with different content each time). If you’re looking for a speaker who can provide valuable content and make your audience feel like they got their money’s worth, you’ve found her. Bridget’s content was not only interesting, engaging and fun, it was completely tailored to our audience. Audiences respond to Bridget because she gives them insightful and practical advice they can take to their jobs the next day. Bridget was a delight to work with and I will definitely hire her again for future conferences."
Network of Executive Women
"Bridget is the kind of speaker that you dream of hiring when you plan an event. She educates audiences about an important topic - women - in the most engaging and entertaining way imaginable. I have worked with Bridget on two different events and each time she has left her audiences buzzing and asking for more."
Art Van Furniture, Inc.
"I have had the tremendous opportunity to work with many top speakers, but no one has ever made the investment of time and effort to research her audience as Bridget Brennan did when preparing for our conference. She is a true 1%’er. Not only was she fabulously relevant, but her message stuck. It is exciting to get copies of sales transactions with a message attached that reads, 'I have to thank Bridget for this one.'"
Food Vision Summit, Cannes
“Bridget was an immediate and much talked about hit at our inaugural Food Vision Summit. Authoritative, engaging and supremely well informed, she held her audience in the palm of her hand from her opening words to her closing comments. She certainly knows a lot about marketing to women – and just as much about speaking to men. Our 80% male audience was challenged, enlightened, even a little provoked; but never threatened or brow beaten! She was also generous with her time and knowledge throughout the Summit, engaging helpfully and enthusiastically with delegates from around the world.”
"Bridget and her team are on fire and incredible to work with! Not only did Bridget give an informational and energetic presentation to our Conference of over 18,000 women, but she tailored it specifically to our company, getting to know our field and our language. Her message resonated with our audience and left them inspired and filled with ideas to grow their businesses. Bridget is a must have speaker for any type of business!"
SEMA | Specialty Equipment Market Association

Illinois Office of Tourism

She earned the highest score we've ever had for a speaker, and most importantly, she brought a fresh, new voice to our industry. Her talk was compelling, insightful and entertaining. She opened our industry's eyes to the importance of focusing on female consumers."
International Cemetary, Cremation & Funeral Association
“Bridget and her team were a delight to work with. They were professional, efficient and very thoughtful throughout the whole process. They were meticulous in assuring that they were covering all areas that we wanted explored. Bridget was the highest-rated speaker at our conference (even beating out Jeffrey Gitomer!) and for good reason. She delivers outstanding results in a lively fashion. Bridget presented vital information to our members that both educated and explained how and why they need to alter their business model to attract more women to their business. A first-class experience!”
Gerent Corporativo De Mercadeo, Organización Publicitaria, S.A., Honduras
"Bridget is by far one of the most engaging and interesting speakers I have had an opportunity to work with. She knows how to captivate an audience and get a clear and consistent message across using wit, real life examples and lots of charisma. Our audience appreciated the effort into making her message and insights adaptable and usable for day to day business. Finally I would like to mention the pleasure it was to work with Bridget and the Female Factor staff as they made reaching project milestones and deliverables a very positive experience."

She truly energized the crowd and had everyone talking about "Why She Buys" for hours after the session. I would highly recommend Bridget for any speaking engagement."
French Trade Commission-Ubifrance

She presents a subject matter which is thoroughly interesting and engages the audience with her gestures, inflections, anecdotes and facts!"
Hearth & Home Technologies
"Bridget Brennan was the highlight of our annual Summer Summit. I have never worked with a speaker who invested more time in learning about our business. Months ahead of the event, Bridget visited our retail partners’ stores; brainstormed with our management team; and interviewed key customers and executives. The result of her thorough preparation was rave reviews from our attendees, who gave her the highest score possible and nearly a year later are quoting her words and applying her insights. If you can hire Bridget, don’t hesitate. Your audience – and your business — will thank you."

Natural Products Expo West
"Bridget kept our attendees rapt for the duration of her keynote by getting to the heart of marketing to women. Her entertaining and informative observations helped many in our industry quickly identify what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong. Her research applies to any industry, but she diligently researched natural products brands prior to her appearance and made things “click” for our audience. I’ll recommend Bridget for any audience looking to get it right from the digital shelf to the store shelf!"

She was also a joy to work with, and I would highly recommend her for any Moderator or Keynote Speaker engagement."
Foundation Partners Group
"Bridget's presentation to our company leaders was out of this world! Since 70% of our customer base happens to be female, she was able to connect the dots and provide insights to our leaders on how best to reach our female customers. Her ability to communicate in a very straightforward and understandable way insured that her message was easily understood by all. Great job!”
Bricks & Mobile Conference

Whether in store or via mobile, Bridget shared the critical nature of communicating with your female consumer now, as she will grow your business for years to come."
"We have had yearly kick-off meetings for 20 years, and I have never seen our sales team as engaged in a meeting as they were with Bridget’s presentation. Many of them came to me after the meeting to thank us for bringing in a fresh point of view on in-home selling, and I know they took something away that will help them in the house. Apparently some of them put it to use, because we have had record January and February sales months!"

"I work with influential speakers constantly. Here’s what makes Bridget different: she is a gifted speaker who also goes the extra mile to be a true partner to her clients. I hired Bridget to speak at a conference of global retail leaders, and she went above and beyond to work with our team in preparation for the event. She spent time with our executives on prep calls, she tailored her presentation to our audience, she met our attendees at dinner activities and engaged with them throughout the conference, to the point where she was able to acknowledge them by name from the stage. They truly appreciated her personal attention and valuable content, and gave her rave reviews, with some people saying they could have listened to her all day! Hiring Bridget was one of the best decisions we made."
