The 11 Commandments at Ohio State University
Sept. 5, 2023 – Bruce Hendrick was invited back to present “The 11 Commandments of Building Trust” to students of Dr. James Kinder, Professor, College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences at the Ohio State University.

Dr. Kinder knows the value of laying a foundation of good communication skills for our upcoming workforce and business owners, and knows Bruce and Building Trust is a cornerstone of that foundation. The students and Bruce then spent time in a thought-provoking Q&A session.
