Serve, don't sell.
Do well by doing good.
Bring out talent in others.
These are the themes I live by and share in my presentations at leading companies and events.
I share tips and tactics that work for ordinary humans, people like you and me. My suggestions mostly come from my personal experiences, and they work extremely well.
For example, I've built a following of over 575,000 LinkedIn members, simply because my first instinct is to help others.
My social media updates each reach many thousands of people, simply because their purpose is to serve, rather than sell.
I'm just as happy leading a panel of experts as delivering a keynote speech... but whichever one you hire me to do, I'll deliver a genuine and heartfelt performance.
This page features a few of my "Chairlift Chats" from the recent Thin Air conference in Park City, Utah. My role there was break out the best insights from other speakers. By the way, I wasn't joking when I told Michelle MacLaren (top video) I skied that morning with Olympians (bottom video).
You'll find me to be a creative and highly positive collaborator. But don't take my word for it. Let's set up a call to discuss your needs.
Webinar audio... Here's the full broadcast of a recent webinar I delivered to MIT alumni. According to MIT, the webinar set a record for the number of registrants at 2,263.

“Bruce - I think I was meant to attend your presentation at Wesleyan University. Your talk on How to Bring Out the Best Talent in Others was a win-win-win for me. It helped me realize how in line your clearly stated approach is with my core values, it helped me see that I needed help, and it spurred me to action on transitioning my career from an active law practice to helping other attorneys improve their practices (and lives). Thank you for being a catalyst, helping me to help myself and others.”
