Speaker Profile - Bruce MacLaren

 Bruce is a 40 year veteran of the IT industry, with over 34 years of extensive sales and senior management experience.

He is a strong advocate of great customer service being a differentiator. A dedicated family man, Bruce has overcome personal adversity as a cancer survivor, and talks passionately of the need for BALANCE in one's life in trying to cope with the intense demands of the frantic life we tend to lead, and how life altering events can shape and dramatically influence one's behavior.
