I personally gained from Bruce’s relaxed yet professional approach and style, which allowed me time & space to consider a wide range of choices.  This enabled me to lead differently in a complex and changing role.  With my team, he was upbeat, stimulating and thought-provoking.  Challenging them to take responsibility and commit to change.
