Brigette Hyacinth Reviews and Testimonials


We had the pleasure of having Brigette speak at the Iowa SHRM State Conference in 2022. From the moment we met in person, she was a professional and gracious person. Her keynote on “Leading in the Age of AI and Automation” was fresh topic that really had the live audience at the edge of their seats wanting to learn more. As an HR professional myself, her presentation was thought provoking and cutting edge and really paired well alongside her famous tagline of “it’s time to put back the human in human resources.” She truly is an inspiring and genuine speaker. We were honored to have her speak at our event and would recommend her to others.

“I invited Brigette to speak at our LEAP2020 HR conference in Bucharest. She is a great speaker, very inspiring and engaging. Her presentation on creating staffing strategies that work was very insightful. Brigette exemplifies her philosophy of there is nothing that can replace the ‘human touch.’ We were impressed with her and look forward to working with her again in the near future.”

“I was privileged to work with Brigette when she visited our HR Executive 2020 event in Helsinki. Leadership, ethics and recruiting professional with a big heart! What an inspiring speaker!

With her inspiration about the mindset of passion, innovation and growth she has touched so many of us daily to trust ourselves and do everyday more good to each other. Soft skills are the new hard skills in the future: balancing out humanity and automation.

Brigette`s human touch focus is remarkable and she seems to have this inspiring touch on so many people worldwide.

We are happy to follow her ideas!”

“Brigette is an awesome speaker who can really inspire other people – online and offline. It was great to work with her before, during and after the 21st World Business Dialogue. Brigette does not focus ‘traditional’ leadership skills, but she defines them in a new way: A leader has to empower others to become leaders, too. She has already done (personal note: or managed) this a long time ago.”

BTW: A great photo on the homepage:) If you have any questions, please let me know.

“One of the highlights of 2019 for our Avandis Women CEOs Network was the dinner we hosted to welcome Brigette Hyacinth during her trip to Nigeria. With an intimate group of top women business leaders and entrepreneurs we spoke candidly about the challenges of female leadership and how as women leaders to mentor the younger generation of women to progress in their careers. We found Brigette warm, engaging and modest despite her incredible influence and success in the field of leadership and she became a ‘sister’ to me in a short period of time. I look forward to meeting her again and working with her on another occasion soon.”

“I was a fellow panelist with Brigette at the 8th Atlantic Dialogues held in Morocco, which is considered as a premier annual event for decision-makers to discuss cross-regional issues around the Atlantic Basin (450 participants from over 60 countries).

Brigette is a seasoned professional, engaging and inspiring. The audience appreciated alot her insightful contribution and comments during the conference.

I look forward to work with her again in future projects.”

“I had the opportunity to spend time with Brigette while she was in Washington DC as an invited speaker at an International event. Brigette is a true thought leader in the field of human resources, and is an expert on how emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) will impact the workplace in the future. More importantly, Brigette is a kind, genuine and caring person, who is not only a great colleague, but a true friend.”

“I finally met Brigitte in New Delhi after following her for a long time on LinkedIn. Her speech on HR was captivating, engaging and inspiring. I sat in the front row because I didn’t want to miss anything. Moreover, she is such a nice person, very warm and genuine. She takes the time to interact with everyone.  She epitomizes her philosophy of nothing can replace the “human touch.”  She was an absolute hit in India. I wish she would come again soon. It would be my honor to host here.”

“I had the opportunity to meet Brigitte while she was in Bogotá, Colombia. Reading her books and following her valuable insights has contributed to building a motivated team across multiple disciplines, experiences and work force generations. She is not only intelligent, but humble and just has a passion for people. Hope our paths will cross again in the near future.”

“I got the opportunity to attend a workshop in Singapore last year where Brigette was one of the guest speakers. After seeing her wonderful posts online, it was great to be able to see her speak and offer a fresh perspective on the workplace and engagement in the digital age. Brigette is a engaged and inspiring speaker and brings a profound sense of humanity and care to the stage. I look forward to seeing her next time she presents in the region.”

“I met Brigette at an accounting conference in Rwanda where she was one of the panelists of session I was chairing. What a beautiful soul she is! From the day we met, she was pleasant, helpful to the team, engaged in the preparation session and above all happy to share her insights based on her experiences.

Her work ethic is absolutely amazing , she is dedicated to what she does while ensuring she does not ignore the people around her ( fans , colleagues and everyone who came out to meet her and believe me they came in numbers ,even people who were not part of the conference! ) she does this with humbleness and utmost respect . This is the kind of leaders we need in our societies!!

Thank you Brigette for all your inspiration!”

“I started following Brigette Hyacinth on LinkedIn as I saw others in my network liking her posts and engaging with her. So when Brigette posted she was going to be in NYC in October 2018, I invited her to join me at the monthly Irish Business Organization of New York Networking breakfast, and she said yes! She fit us in between her other engagements, was our LinkedIn Influencer guest speaker, and drew many new faces to the breakfast which also included some musical entertainment!

Brigette spoke to the group about her career, why she wants to bring change to the job recruiting process, and why she recommends that everyone support job seekers’ posts on LinkedIn. My advice is to continue to follow and be inspired by Brigette to help yourself and job seekers, and pay close attention to what city she is heading to next. She just must join you and your network.”

“Hosting Brigette in The Hague during the Rise and Lead Summit, 2019 was a great honour. Brigette brought a lot of energy and inspiration into the room, which was packed with leaders from across the globe. Myself and most of our participants were very excited to see her in person, having followed her on Linkedin for a very long time. I would say that Brigette practices what she preaches. She’s a leader at heart and I can’t wait to have her speak at our next leadership summit.
