Bridget K. Brown
Senior Training & Development Consultant
Bridget has been called a “Geek Translator” for her uncanny knack of making the complex clear. Her ability to coach out of a team or an individual, the story that needs to be told, reaps great benefits in the areas of science communication, change management, public speaking and storytelling for sales and marketing. With 15+ years of instructional design and facilitation experience, she combines her background as an actress and writer by using elements of improvisation and storytelling, as well as graphic design for visual storytelling in her work. Her workshops always invoke fun among participants.
Bridget has created global security awareness programs for two Fortune 500 companies, coached scientists in TEDx talks, and helped organizations within the healthcare industry tell stories which aid them to sell their data-driven products to increase their bottom line. Additionally, for the past four years, she has been teaching unconscious bias and diversity training for State of Connecticut governmental agencies. In addition to being a master facilitator, Bridget has over 17 years of experience as an e-learning designer and developer. Her training modules have been completed by employees of a vast array of organizations including Anheuser-Busch, Hyatt Hotels, IBM, Monsanto, Nestlé Purina, and Volkswagen.
Bridget has trained at the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, and Duarte Academy for Presentation Skills in Silicon Valley. She was a workshop instructor for the 2016 Science Communication Symposium at Washington University in St. Louis, (along with Alda Center facilitators), where she also taught as an Adjunct Instructor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. She earned her M.A. and B.A. with Honors in Theatre from Binghamton University.
