He was very thorough in his analysis of directors and members of our management team, who responded most positively to his empathetic, egalitarian approach. He helped us address key business matters to work even better as a company and a team.
Bruce has a rare, human quality, he actually listens to what people say!”

"I have worked with Bruce for more than 30 years, and can say with confidence that a hallmark of his consulting is that he is completely trustworthy with the highest sense of values and unique turn of mind.
While compassionate, he is also a tough taskmaster. I know when I work with Bruce that he will get the job done well and right — a refreshing certainty.”
-Nella G. Barkley
Founder and CEO
"During Bruce’s last day with us, I expressed some anxiety about being the youngest member of the team, confiding that I probably had a lot to learn. At which point he stunned me by saying, with absolute sincerity, “Maybe you have a lot to teach.” It hit like a bullet, and boosted my sense of self-worth at a time I really needed it.
I’m grateful for the insight, and for suggesting I really could take my self-confidence to audacious new heights.”
