Bruce has been called a renaissance man. At age 15 he sang in the choir for Duke Ellington and by 19 was playing The Boy in the world’s longest running musical, The Fantasticks, in a run lasting more than 800 performances.
Trained at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, he has performed in Shakespeare in the Park, television commercials and films, ran a small art business based in New York City, and was a founding member of ODC, San Francisco’s top dance company.
He left his musical theater career decades ago to join the vibrant California business community and founded and/or managed several innovative businesses in the health care arena.
He was a founding director of the acclaimed HeartMath Institute and CEO of HeartMath for 11 years. He has been Adjunct Faculty at Stanford University since 1997 teaching through both the Graduate Business School and the School of Medicine. He has facilitated leadership and management groups with Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinic, The World Bank, Unilever, Shell, Prudential Financial, the NHS, Cisco Systems, and Yosemite National Park.
After fully recovering from a two-year health ordeal, he began to sing and dance again through a project he developed called What Makes Your Heart Sing. In 2018 he released his first album of original songs, entitled Renaissance Human.
His work now is a blend of the latest discoveries in personal performance, leadership and neuroscience infused with an artistic sensibility to awaken creativity and inspiration in every audience.
Bruce's Music2Meeting Program Notes
Depending on your team's goals and preferences, your team-building session with Bruce can be from one to three hours long.
Bruce will join your meeting, introduce himself, and describe his 5 Catalyst Model for Awakening Creative Brilliance.
He will then lead a 12-15 minute exercise that is part guided meditation, part dance party. Your group will be relaxed and inspired after this process!
A classically trained Broadway style singer who is performing once again for New York audiences, he will include one or two songs from his album, Renaissance Human, to energize and inspire your group.
For longer programs, he includes a creative writing exercise and multi-media assets to bring a refined artistic sensibility to the session.
The program will conclude with a Q&A in the spirit of “How Do I Get My Creative Juices Flowing Again?”
