Bruce Cryer has had a diverse career spanning musical theater, biotech, personal development, health and well-being, and executive mentoring. He began as a singer/dancer/actor in New York, including two years in The Fantasticks, the world’s longest-running musical. Since the early 80s, Bruce has been teaching innovative approaches to optimal health, business success, personal balance, and human performance. Bruce has been adjunct faculty at Stanford University since 1997 and was named CEO of HeartMath in 2000, having helped launch the HeartMath Institute with founder Doc Childre in 1991. Bruce’s clients include Mayo Clinic, The World Bank, Kaiser Permanente, NASA, Unilever, Shell, Cisco, Cathay Pacific Airways, and the NHS (UK).
Bruce is co-author of From Chaos to Coherence: The Power to Change Performance and the Harvard Business Review article “Pull the Plug on Stress”. He has edited more than 30 books in the field and contributed to more than a dozen others.
A two-year health crisis convinced him to focus his energies on creativity. Bruce now enjoys robust health while singing, dancing and enjoying photography. His keynote performance, “What Makes Your Heart Sing”, awakens the power of inspiration. He recently released Renaissance Human, an album of original songs co-created with the Brothers Koren and he performs regularly in New York. He is currently Executive Director of the Integrative Health Institute at Salem University.
