Michael kicked off the inaugural session partnership between SXSW and Blacks in Technology during the 2013 SXSWi conference. His session, entitled “The New Art of Networking” was so phenomenal that we rearranged the 2 day session schedule to have him come back and do an encore session! He was engaging and very knowledgeable about his subject matter. He was well prepared and his presentation was focused on the needs of his target audience. We look forward to partnering with Michael for 2014!- Tammy Benton, 2013 SXSWi/BiT Session Czar
The Consortium on High Achievement and Success hired Michael to facilitate a session on networking for our Black and Latino Males Conference.
Mr. Bruny not only made networking a “thing” for students, he made it fun by removing the stiff stigma attached to it. He also used hip-hop lyrics to discuss personal branding. One of the most innovative presentations I’ve ever seen. The students enjoyed that Mr. Bruny encouraged them to remain true to who they are.
Mike, thank you for working with my students. I work with some of the brightest students on campus and at times, people think they have it all and don’t need much of anything.
These students however, often come to me with questions about growing personally and professionally. They do well academically, but want to grow in other aspects of their lives.
Your program “Hashtags to Handshakes” went over well with my students. We often send them out to national conferences and career fairs and assume because they are bright, they will do well.
We often find that students are “out of their league” and need training on how to make the most of their time at these events. Your program set them on the right path and demystified the process of being successful at conferences, job fairs, interviews, etc.
The students came away with practical tools they could put into practice immediately. If I’m not mistaken, I think I saw light bulbs turning on above their heads during the session…the room got brighter when you were done:-) Seriously, I think college students as well as administrators can learn a great deal from your programs. The work you do is important and needed.

Going to a conference can be scary. Feeling prepared and confident lets you break through that fear to really connect with the people around you. I am so happy I went through Mike Ambassador Bruny’s workshop. I got so much out of it.
Thanks to you, I have a better idea of how to organize my time and efforts before, during and after a conference. Invaluable info.
