Bruce has developed a growing list of clients in the provision of Master of Ceremony work (see testimonials), offering hosting and MC services for Conferences and Special Functions including Association and Not for Profit assignments.
Much of that work has been in golf related events but a wide general knowledge of both sport and business is presenting increasing opportunities for events of a broader nature.
An established but expanding profile, as a result of his extensive media work, offers increasing opportunities for Bruce to host luncheons, dinners, and other golf and sport related functions in addition to a wide range of industry conferences.
Assignments have included the MC of and facilitation of panel discussions at the 2009 Australian Golf Industry Council’s Media Panel Discussion, the PGA of Australia’s Teaching Summit, the Queensland Golf Industry Forum, The Asia Pacific Turfgrass Conference, The Australia and New Zealand Search and Rescue Conference, The Queensland Mining Industry’s Health and Safety Conference, the launch and prize-giving ceremonies for the Queensland PGA, the Queensland Open and the New Zealand PGA, On Course Hosting at Shootout events for the Emerald Lakes and Virginia Golf Clubs, MC duties and ‘fireside’ interviews at events for the PGA of Australia and the launch of the professional career of Amy Yang.
As MC at the Asia Pacific PGA Coaching Summit in 2010, 2012 and 2014, Bruce played a key role in the success of each, ensuring the smooth running of Keynote speeches, Breakout sessions, Q&A sessions, the Teacher of the Year Dinner and Panel discussions.
Bruce enjoys the dynamic of facilitating Panel Discussions bringing together various points of view and allowing such discussion and debate to flow. The picture below shows a panel discussion with golf analyst Mike Clayton and Golf Australia’s Trevor Herden at Royal Queensland Golf Club in late 2018.
“I am a great believer in allowing the event I am hosting to flow seamlessly rather than the host being the focus of the show,” says Bruce. “This allows delegates and other participants to gain maximum value for their attendance.
“I pride myself on the level of research I undertake to ensure that whatever the nature of the gathering I am able to cover all aspects of the event’s agenda.”

Bruce has also provided MC duties for RACV at luncheons during the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters on the Gold Coast interviewing players for invited guests and sponsors. Below he is seen with American Cheyenne Woods a winner of the Australian Ladies Masters

Bruce also hosted the unveiling of the Von Bronze at the Nudge Golf Club – a sculptured piece to recognize the role Norman Von Nida played in Australian golf. The following are a few random moments from that role.
