Dr. Bridget Cooper, best-selling author of five books on communication, conflict, change, and empowermentwill address the West Hartford Women in Networking on Thursday, April 25.


Have you ever suffered humiliation? Embarrassment?

What happens if your well-crafted plan is hijacked, causing you to fail publicly with thousands of eyes watching? It happened to Dr. Bridget Cooper, live on a TEDx stage.

She will share lessons learned the hard way and how she drove through the most humiliating and devastating moment, sailed through the stress of it, recognizing that it’s our vulnerability that CONNECTS us. It’s our courage in the face of it that INSPIRES us.

Cooper is a cage rattler. Change strategist. Thought shifter. Best-selling author of five books on communication, conflict, change, and empowerment. And, lover of higher consciousness and even higher heels! Her ambitious mission is to change the world, one hopeful life at a time. Born onto the welfare system and raised by wolves, she’s made her own success, one broken fingernail at a time.

She knows heartache and hopelessness and she also knows the power of the mind and spirit to carry you upward. Bottom line: “Dr. B” sculpts the leader in all of us by making us better people first. Her clients run the gamut from the Girl Scouts to Vietnam vets. From universities to jails. From insurance companies to massage therapists. Her secret mission is tobring all of these groups together someday and see what fun transpires! She’s lived in California, Florida, Virginia, New York, Massachusetts, but now happily resides in Connecticut where she’s single-handedly raising two spunky, sassy, and ambitious young women. She theoretically loves to cook, explore the outdoors, and pursue her lust for travel but says her aforementioned daughters dominate her time, putting other adventures on hold. For now.

Cooper will speak to the West Hartford Women in Networking on Thursday, April 25, from 7:30-9:30 a.m., at Chatfield/Brookdale, One Chatfield Dr., West Hartford, CT.

The meeting will also include introductions, networking, door prizes, and breakfast snacks. There will be a display table, and attendees are welcome to bring business cards, brochures etc. New attendees are welcome and there is no membership fee. The meeting cost is $2 person.

An RSVP for headcount is appreciated. For further information visit www.westhartfordwomeninnetworking.com or Dianne Rechel [email protected] or 860-573-3501.
