"Your intervention captivated our members, which certainly contributed to the success of this conference. You have also adapted very well your topic to our topic on succession.
The members had only very positive comments about you. Among other things, they liked your inspiring and touching speech, as well as your ease of approach and your generosity."

"Expect to be transported into the history of the 1994 Relay Race Finals and understand how Bruny has become the athlete he has been. He will explain his maxim: 'The one I see, is the one I will be'. He will show you how this powerful phrase has shaped it over the years and how it can all be used in our everyday lives. In addition, it will make a superb parallel between a relay race and the synergy that groups must have in the same company in order for it to perform at all levels.
In addition, Bruny will motivate you to find what makes you dream! This may seem trivial, but you will better understand the aspirations and dreams of your employees, of course if they open to you, what I hope!"
Renaud LavoiePresident & CEO, Embrionix
"We received Bruny as a guest speaker for our Employee Recognition Week. He was certainly one of the best speakers we had.
He talks about leadership, motivation and perseverance in a unique way that reaches us all. His story is inspiring and he tells it to us with humor, authenticity and generosity."
Amélie JournetHead of Human Resources and Organization Transformation, Lavery Avocats
While we were in turbulent times due to a merger of two companies, we opted to give an inspiring break to our employees. Bruny came to talk to us about teamwork, adapting to changes, failure to success and perseverance.
As General Manager, I saw the light in my employees' eyes and they came out with a common goal of success. Bruny knew how to integrate the values of our company in his speech.
The effects of this conference on the team were felt immediately and after a few months, the employees are still talking about it."

Bruny captured the attention of our group throughout his conference. His story, told with humour and humility, he inspired everyone at Benny&Co., so much so that the expression "Visualize" is now part of our employees' vocabulary!
Jean BennyPresident, Benny & Co
The comments are unanimous and all were impressed by its history, message and generosity.
Bruny has generated many thoughts and we are confident that the impact it had among our leaders will have a positive impact on our results in the coming weeks and months. Everyone is still talking about Bruny, even several days after his visit. He convinced us to be ambitious, to have confidence in ourselves, but above all to continue to pursue our dreams.
