“Bruce was a very professional speaker. He delivered a strong message. He made the presentation fun, worked in some of our sponsors and woke up the audience.”
“Excellent! Another outstanding presentation occurred today when Bruce Wilkinson addressed all USS/POSCO Employees in our Tin Mill Warehouse. His message was fun yet brought in all of the safety awareness that is so needed in our industry. He was well received by union and management alike and there was never a dull moment.”
“I can’t begin to tell you how many positive comments I received following your presentation at our annual Frito-Lay Operations Safety Conference earlier this year. Your message about personal safety responsibility and the importance of embracing a zero injury culture struck a chord will all of our attendees, from our front line technicians to our senior management. Not only did you deliver a great message, but you did it with a combination of humor, passion and emotion that was very sincere. We laughed with you, but we also felt the pain during your stories and ultimately, I believe you truly touched everyone’s heart.”
“Bruce Wilkinson is a very dynamic professional speaker that does an outstanding job of holding your attention and getting his points across, usually with great life application stories you will not forget. I would highly recommend Bruce!”
