Bruce presented 3 Steps
Creating Content at the 26th Annual Fleet Safety
The information was very well received by our delegates. Bruce did a fantastic job engaging the group and providing them with an interactive session. Those in attendance were able to take something away that they could implement immediately in their various roles in the transportation industry.
The book provided by Bruce will be very useful and serve as a great resource as well. I would recommend this presentation and Bruce to others looking for ways to enhance their presentations.
Thank you Bruce.

We have had the opportunity to have Bruce Outridge present at our KRTS campus in Caledonia to new and existing commercial drivers. Bruce is well organized, his material is of the highest quality and understands the importance of keeping his audience involved and interested. His years of experience in the trucking industry from driver to Owner Operator to management allow him to give his audience a unique perspective. It is our future plans of the Power to Drive partners to use Mr. Outridge to present at our recruiting seminars. I would recommend Mr. Outridge to any company or organization that is looking for a quality presentation by an individual who truly cares about the betterment and Professionalism of the trucking industry.
