Bruce is passionate in his belief that going to work can be a great experience when the company get their management of human capital right. This means selecting the right people, training them, and consistently communicating with them effectively so they know how to get the most out of themselves and the best out of the company. This is invariably through adopting a coaching method.

To relax Bruce enjoys jogging around the Cambridgeshire countryside, at one time being capable of a 2:28 marathon. At a more sedate pace he will walk his dog down by the river and through the fields, and when he has time kick back, open the popcorn watch a movie or go for a pub meal with his family.
