Fun Fact about motivational speaker Bruce Outridge:  Bruce is Canadian born with Guyanese heritage and has been traveling to the Caribbean since he was a child.

“Inspiring the Future

When your inspiration is drawing, writing, and speaking it can only lead to a person being creative and possibly even a motivational speaker. I started drawing at the age of ten years old and had to learn it on my own as I found art classes at school didn’t include drawing instruction. In fact I used to get detentions in school for what I now charge hundreds of dollars for an hour in my art business.

At sixteen my passion for drawing turned to driving and I fell in love with the Bruce Outridgeprocess. I spent twenty five years driving transport trucks across North America which taught me more about dealing with people than school ever did. I still work very closely with the trucking industry speaking on business and careers for the industry. Check out my podcast for truck drivers called The Lead Pedal Podcast for Truck Drivers.

At the age of forty I went back to school and that kicked off my entrepreneurial career. I learned creative writing, marketing, business, and I use all of those skills in my business today. Since starting my art business back in 2003 on a part time basis, I took it full time in 2006 and stopped driving trucks. Since that time I have created comic books, built an art business, expanded into a consulting a business, and now a speaking business.

My services today include helping people be more creative, content marketing for clients, art entertainment for events, and inspiration for people to help them create the lives they want. I do that through my podcasts, books, articles, television show, and as a motivational speaker.

I am a professional member of many local and international organizations such as CAPS (Canadian Association of Professional Speakers), ISCA (International Society of Caricature Artists), Oakville Arts Council,  ACC (Association of Canadian Cartoonists), Burlington Chamber of Commerce, and Hamilton Niagara Fleet Safety Council

My inspiration for business is that it teaches you to be creative to be successful. I try to inspire youth to let them know just because you are not great in school doesn’t mean you are not talented or important. I aim to show people that have amazing talent such as artists and musicians that you can make a career you love if you are willing to put in the work. I also use my programs to inspire corporate teams to think differently and use cartooning processes to help them do that. If you have ever sat in a meeting where no one could come up with an original idea, then you understand the importance of inspiration.

I hope to work with you one day in the area of importance to you,

Bruce

Inspiring Youth TV

Bruce Outridge – Television, Inspiration

Welcome to Inspiring Youth TV

What is Inspiring Youth TV? Inspiring Youth TV is a television show that was developed for Cogeco Television which is a television network in Ontario Canada. The Inspiring Youth Show airs on Cogeco’s YOURTV community channel in September 2017 and is currently filming Season 2.

So what is the show actually about?

In short the show showcases ambitious youth and community partners that Inspiring-Youth-Logo-colourcan help them or have helped them further their career. It started like this:

How did the show get started?

I was speaking at an event put on by Halton Industry Education Council (HIEC) for their Men and Career Coaches program. I was one of many keynote speakers that evening and had the pleasure of meeting Stuart Aker who is a Producer at Cogeco TV. He approached me at a later date with the opportunity to do a community show. As we met at an event for youth in the area I suggested we do a show showcasing youth in the area and the idea was born. I was assigned a Tech Producer / Camera person named James Spalding and we began work on the show.

Over the next couple months James, the team at Cogeco, and myself took on the task of filming thirteen episodes that included studio interviews, on-location film shoots, and arranging schedules with multiple guests.

The way these programs work is that the host (me) comes up with the show topic, content for the show, and the guests. Cogeco supplies the technical aspect with equipment, studio, and support. A big thank you to Stuart, James, Daniel, Shane, and Michelle for helping out with filming for the show.

Filming was completed in various stages and locations. As the only people that may see the show on television are in the Halton area so I took along my own video equipment to capture footage in the studio and on location as well.

So if you are outside of Halton or would like to see background footage including Behind the Scenes video check out the Inspiring Youth TV channel on YouTube.

I hope you enjoy the show. Keep an eye out for future episodes of the show, special episodes, and future seasons. It was a great experience for those involved and I look forward to repeating the process in the future.
