ABOUT BRETTE
Brette Goldstein

As a casting director, I've cast multiple television series for streaming and cable networks such as HBO and USA, over 50 films, 300 commercials, 100 plays, seven pilot presentations for networks such as Bravo, and various new media projects. I was the resident casting director at Washington, D.C.’s Folger Elizabethan Theatre for ten seasons. Films I've cast have won awards and been official selections at all major film festivals including Sundance, Tribeca, and Cannes. I was the Co-Producing Director of Washington Jewish Theatre, the Production Manager at Washington Shakespeare Co., and the Associate Producer of the Washington Theatre Festival. I've worked with thousands of actors, helping them book roles, make career choices, and secure representation.

 

I now bring my expertise to the world of business and beyond. I teach innovators, executives, salespeople, and collaborators how to deliver authenticity. I've provided presentation coaching for the senior executives at Boehringer Ingelheim, casting expertise for Hubspot’s sales managers, Special Sauce workshops for Library of Congress, and many others. I lead ongoing interactive group workshops with 28Muses and provide counsel on The Boston Globe’s podcast, Love Letters.

 

I am an Adjunct Associate Professor of Acting for Shenandoah Conservatory's BFA Acting Program. I also teach acting and audition technique as a guest artist at several other universities, including Montclair State University, Muhlenberg College, and the University of Maryland at College Park.

 

I'm a CultureTalk certified coach, focusing on the study of archetypes and how they apply to individuals and organizations.

your "It Factor", that thing about you that pops, that is deeply compelling;

it makes us want to lean in, listen, follow your lead, and have you on our team

Brette Goldstein

In my 25-year career as a casting director for film, television, commercials, and theatre, what set me apart was my ability to name someone's "Special Sauce" — their "It Factor." It's that thing that makes us want to watch them on our screens, ask them out for a coffee, and get to know who they really are.

Now, as a corporate coach, it is my job to help clients name their Special Sauce and embrace who they truly are, leaning into their authentic voice instead of judging themselves or trying to be something they're not. Through our work together, I help clients to discover their strengths and build confidence, whether they're in the conference room, giving a presentation on Zoom, speaking to a jury, or leading a team through challenges and transitions.
