Bruce Daisley

Bruce Daisley ran Twitter in Europe for twelve years before becoming a best selling author and technology leader, having launched the successful “East, Sleep, Work Repeat” podcast. One the most respected thought leaders on the subject of workplace culture and the future of work, Bruce is a highly sought after keynote speaker at conferences around the world.

Bruce grew up on a council estate in Birmingham. He started his working career in fast food restaurants to help him pay his way to become the first member of his family to go to university. After dozens of rejections, Bruce landed his first career role by taking a risk and drawing a cartoon CV of his life and mailed it to 50 employers.

Bruce subsequently spent 12 years running Twitter in Europe and previously YouTube in the UK. He left Twitter as its most senior leader outside of the US. 

He is Honorary Visiting Professor at the prestigious Bayes Business School at City University London.

In 2022 his second book, Fortitude, became a smash top 5 bestseller in the Sunday Times charts. It followed the remarkable success of his debut title, The Joy of Work, which was a Sunday Times number one business bestseller in spring 2019.

The Financial Times made it Book of the Month and it was shortlisted for CMI Management Book of the Year. His Audible Original, No Office Required was a top 10 audiobook on its release in January 2021.

His writing to promote the US release of the book (titled Eat Sleep Work Repeat) was featured in Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and Harvard Business Review. The book was chosen as book of the quarter for Michael Hyatt’s esteemed Leader Books CEO subscription service.

In a prestigious survey of CEOs and MDs, Bruce was named the “Fantasy Hire” that most leaders would like to make – his fourth time of winning the accolade (other names placed included Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Martin Sorrell).

He regularly ranks as the top-rated speaker at conferences in the US and the UK. 

Bruce generally gets requests that fall into three content streams: This is how he describes them himself:-

The Joy of Work: How can teams (and leaders) get their mojo back and deal with the demands of modern work? My obsession with workplace culture has seen me appointed as a Visiting Honorary Professor at Bayes Business School at City University in London, and I regularly teach on the topic at London Business School. I’ve run a chart-topping podcast on these themes for six years and my book on this topic was the bestselling business book of the year.

Understanding Resilience - the Secrets of Inner Strength: My book on resilience, Fortitude, was recently described by the Financial Times as the 'best business book of the year'. I conducted a fireside chat on this topic at the world renowned RSA

Leadership in the Hybrid Era:  The nature of management has transformed in the last three years, and is set for even greater challenges ahead. How should firms prepare leaders to inspire greatness from their teams?

Bruce was the top rated speaker at the CBI annual Conference (ahead of the Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition) and lots more!
