Brenley has presented at our annual conference for the past two years. I can't say enough about how great it is to work with her. She is just one of those speakers people love, and need to listen to. Her presentations are always bursting with the best of the latest knowledge. They are packed with unique and tangible ideas our participants are able to walk away with, along with real-life examples they can connect to. It is a true privilege for us to work with such a committed professional who cares so deeply about making an impact and making sport better. We cannot wait to have Brenley back again!

The Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences Canada has been privileged to have an amazing group of presenters speak at our annual conference, and Brenley kept to this tradition at our 2019 ‘Tee it Up’ event. Brenley’s enthusiastic and experiential talk kept our audience engaged. She enlightened us all on how we could contribute to an athletes mindset and ability to perform in stressful situations. Her pointed examples and stories were particularly helpful in allowing the audience to understand the contribution of the mental / cognitive side of athletic performance. Our post conference delegate reviews confirmed what was otherwise obvious, Brenley is a great presenter and our organization would not only recommend her, but indeed hope to have her back at a future conference.

I have had the privilege of working with Brenley on the OHF/OHL U-15 Program of Excellence for the past three years. She is an excellent presenter, who has an innate ability to connect with everyone she encounters. Her knowledge of Sport Psychology and the benefit it can have on an athlete's performance is second to none. I strongly recommend Brenley to anyone as a speaker or involvement in your development programs.

I wish every single parent with a kid playing hockey would hear this talk (Effective Sports Parenting). It is so important! Brenley’s presentation will no doubt make you re-think your approach to sports parenting and give you the tools to set your child up for success. The presentation was eye opening, engaging and entertaining, and I highly recommend it to every hockey parent.

Brenley's presentation was engaging, informative and done in a way that made all of the ideas and concepts understandable and relevant. Hearing about her experiences/interactions with high level athletes is a huge positive and she did a great job of weaving this piece through her talk.

Brenley is an incredibly engaging speaker who is able to simplify concepts in a way that is easy to grasp for the entire audience. It was a pleasure having her speak in front of our group. Our attendees left the session more self-aware, reflective and inspired to make positive changes in their behaviours and by extension their lives.

Brenley was an incredible partner for our Done Feels Good Campaign and went over and above throughout the partnership. She was creative, thorough and always reliable.
