"Bruce’s presentation provided a clear definition of  “Emotional Intelligence” and the critical role it plays in building influence.  The information I learned from his presentation provided me with knowledge that will help in the “day to day” management of my team, and in my overall interactions with all levels of personnel throughout Burns & McDonnell and external customers."

What people have to say about Bruce Bolger!

"It's always a pleasure to observe how Bruce interacts with the audience.  He dedicates a lot of time and energy into being well prepared, and it's obvious when you see the level of engagement he brings to the room.  He has a unique ability to connect with a wide variety of audiences.  When you leave one of Bruce’s presentations you come away with a new appreciation of those skills that take  professionalism and leadership to the next level.

"Bruce has an exceptional ability to engage his audience, making a variety of topics relevant for the listener. Personally, I've heard countless safety talks from other people, but Bruce's presentations stand out from the rest. His passion for safety and emotional intelligence resonates with his clients and gives the listener tools to understand yourself and others better, allowing you to positively influence your team and organization."

Michelle Butler, Manager, System Resiliency, Eversource Energy

"At National Fuel, Safety is a core value; it's who we are and how we choose to do business. When we recognized the need for leadership training for many of our talented supervisors and managers, we reached out to Bruce.  He designed and delivered an engaging and effective program that fit our needs exactly.  Feedback from class participants was outstanding - even hourly employees noticed a change (for the better) in the way their supervisors were communicating and leading after they graduated from Bruce's training.  He did a great job and we are looking forward to round two of leadership training!"

Mike Anderson, General Manager - Safety, National Fuel Gas Company

"Bruce introduced me to the concept of Emotional Intelligence a few years ago. We connected on this topic immediately. His passion on the subject shines through during his presentations, as well as in personal conversations. Bruce has the ability to help various audiences understand the components of Emotional Intelligence and how they connect people and an influential safety culture. Clear communication and the development of meaningful relationships are two values that Bruce has shared with me early in my career, yet will take with me indefinitely."

Allie Esposito, BS, CEAS I, cPT – Sr. Safety Specialist, Florida Power & Light

"I have had the pleasure to work with Bruce and have personally experienced his insights into cultural dynamics,  influence and improved communications. Skills that readily lend themselves to professional development.

"Our annual conference in Williamsburg, Virginia consists of over 200 attendees from across the United States. We look for speakers that are dynamic and thought provoking.  Bruce hit the mark with an engaging topic on Transformational Leadership and Emotional Intelligence. Feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive. The thing that separates Bruce from other speakers is his ability to engage the audience in a high energy, interactive presentation that leaves the audience with a lasting impression of the critical skills necessary to succeed in a highly competitive workplace as well as in life.
