Public Speaking

As a public speaker, Bruce Esplin is a storyteller, drawing on a wealth of experience  to move,  to inform, to challenge and to entertain.

Known for his sincere passion and acute intellect, he is a renowned and thought-provoking public speaker. His extensive background as a high profile public figure combined with his more recent artistic pursuits, provides a diverse and meaningful range of life experiences to share.

Bruce has an ability to engage with audiences and draw them into his personal and professional tales of tragedy and triumph. He injects humour, hope, resilience and the human spirit into all his presentations. Perhaps even more importantly, he is able to draw out the learnings and the lessons and the ideas for change.
