Speaking From the Heart
Bridging the Gaps: After publishing his first book, Millennials Revealed, which focuses on helping organizations understand how to effectively bridge gaps across the generations, Tru quickly realized that the generation gaps were not the only gaps that were hindering the health, growth, and development of organizations and their people.
Tru then dedicated himself to helping organizations bridge gaps across the divides that challenge them most, and has quickly emerged as the go-to expert on helping organizations understand how to bridge gaps across racial, relational, social, cultural, and generational differences.
Whether as a keynote speaker or a workshop leader, Tru is the ultimate bridge builder. His areas of expertise are Leadership, Purpose, Inclusion, and Team Building.
