Experience

Bruce has more than two decades of experience in stakeholder communications, business development and project management.

Bruce joined Communikate in 2007, after 14 years (eight as Managing Director) with a prominent Brisbane design firm which was one of Queensland’s most awarded annual report producers. During this time, Bruce coordinated corporate branding and stakeholder communications projects for many major Australian companies and government agencies. These included Adelaide Brighton Limited, M.I.M Holdings Limited, Macarthur Coal Limited, Suncorp Limited, Ports Corporation of Queensland, Gladstone Port Authority, Stanwell Corporation, CITEC and Powerlink Queensland.

Over the past seven years, Bruce has worked on most of Communikate’s major road, rail and water projects, providing consulting support and directing design and production of a wide range of communication materials. These projects have included the $422m Pacific Motorway Upgrade, Springwood (South) to Daisy Hill; the $300m Logan Water Alliance program; the $230m Beenleigh Pimpama Merrimac Alliance program; the $122m Acacia Ridge Rail Crossing Overpass, and the $90m Gateway Additional Lane project. Bruce was also responsible for managing the stakeholder and community engagement program for the landmark $315 million Houghton Highway Duplication Project, a high-involvement role that ran from 2008 to mid-2011.

Bruce has a keen interest in project team relationship management. He has a straightforward, results-driven approach towards team building and partnering which draws on over 20 years of lessons learned from leading people.

In 2011 and 2012, Bruce served as Relationship Coach for the $217 million Townsville Port Access Road (TPAR) project, an alliance-style contract involving the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), Abigroup Contractors, Seymour Whyte Constructions and AECOM. Following the TPAR project, Bruce assisted TMR to develop a range of relationship management specifications that may be used in future road construction contracts.

Bruce currently serves as Relationship Manager for the $90 million Vantassel Street to Cluden Bruce Highway Upgrade project in north Queensland, being delivered by TMR and its construction subcontractor Lend Lease. Bruce is also currently undertaking further tertiary studies in behavioural science and psychology disciplines at the Queensland University of Technology.
