Bruce Daisley

Culture coach, writer and speaker

Bruce Daisley is a bestselling author and technology leader from the UK. He has become regarded as one of the most respected thought leaders on the subject of workplace culture and the future of work.

His prior business career saw him spend 12 years as one of the best known technology leaders in the country, first running YouTube in UK and then Twitter across Europe, Middle East and Africa. In this time a high profile survey of industry leaders voted him the fantasy hire that most of them would like to make. He ended up winning the award four times. For context he came in ahead of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Sir Martin Sorrell.

Campaign magazine said Twitter UK 'formed a reputation for being one of the most respected cultures [in the media/tech industry]. Bruce Daisley can reflect on building something particularly special.' The UK culture was celebrated as the best in the global organisation. After several promotions, he left Twitter as the company's most senior leader outside of the US.

Following the remarkable success of his debut book, The Joy of Work which reached number one in the Sunday Times charts, in 2022 his second bestseller, Fortitude, was named by the Financial Times as the best business book of the year. Bruce's writing has featured in the Washington Post, The Guardian, Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal and The Daily Telegraph amongst other publications. Bruce has spent the last few years turning his passion for workplace culture into an expertise. His award-winning podcast, Eat Sleep Work Repeat, has topped the business charts and has been listened to over five million times. It has been named the world's best podcast on workplace culture. Having led at some of the fastest moving and high profile companies in the world Bruce understands that there's a big difference between what might work in theory and what actually works in practice. His discussions about workplace culture are always filled with practicality, warmth and often humour. As well as keynote speaking he regularly works with leadership teams articulating and implementing cultural programs.

Bruce is an Honorary Visiting Professor at Bayes Business School. He regularly teaches at London Business School.
