About

Our Story Is Telling Your Story


O’Connor Connective is a strategy and marketing communications consultancy connecting people and organizations to innovative results. We were founded in 2013 by Bridget O’Connor because she understands that leaders often need outside sounding boards to make big ideas come true and sometimes to communicate the smallest of changes in their organizations.

We are, quite simply …

  • Innovators—We help you identify, clarify and develop big ideas.
  • Strategy Partners—Smart and strategic, we help you focus
    on what’s most critical.
  • Executive Communications Coaches—Great messaging starts at the top. We are confidential advisors prepared to help you communicate and market your vision.
  • Consultants—We are sounding boards, big thinkers and planners. We help you see what might be too close, or not in your wheelhouse. We then create a roadmap to get you where you want to be.
  • Culture Architects—We help you understand where you are as an organization compared with where you want to be. We then align external messaging with internal communications and actions so to create the culture you seek.
  • Change Managers and Change Communicators—We help you inform with the right tone for the situation to alleviate anxiety, create alignment and build support in times of change.
  • Experienced—We are proven, results-driven consultants. Talented. Educated. Strategic. Highly regarded. Well referred.

Our Commitment

  • Our Mission
  • Our Vision
  • Our Values

To create results through strategy that communicates.

To be a trusted partner of forward-thinking leaders so to build extraordinary organizations.

At O’Connor Connective we believe it’s critical that we define and then live out our values. Here’s what we commit to do for you each and every day:

  • Give Honest Counsel. Ask the hard questions. Push—a little more. We wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t.
  • Offer Radical Hospitality. We take great care of our visitors and partner with clients who have the greater good in mind—these are lessons we seek to carry on from our Norbertine educators and friends.
  • Connect the Dots. Our team revels in making unexpected introductions. If we see potential in a connection, we’ll go out of our way to make it happen.
  • Think Beyond. See what’s not obvious. Make great happen. Be persistent. Bravely create. Do more. Invent. Innovate. That’s our daily responsibility.
  • Be Present. Neither work nor the business of living have a definitive beginning or end for us. We’re accessible in all the ways we need to be, and we find joy in having the interplay of who we are and what we do.
