The face of Heavy Metal for many, Bruce Dickinson has reached epic heights in worldwide commercial success through his contributions to Iron Maiden as their lead vocalist, and as a businessman and entrepreneur.
Upon joining Iron Maiden, the band saw their first UK Number One with the album, “The Number of the Beast” in 1982. Through the 80s, Bruce lead Iron Maiden to become one of the World’s most famous bands and as such, hold the record for the highest ever attendance at the Castle Donington Monsters of Rock Festival, with a live audience of over 110,000 people.
Bruce has also published two comic novels, but his true passions lie in fencing and piloting. His love of flight has seen to it that Bruce work as a pilot and Managing Director for Astraeus Airlines, a founder of Cardiff Aviation (specialists in heavy maintenance of Airbus and Boeing) and most recently, developing lighter, greener hybrid air ships for future transportation. He is also currently setting up Real World Aviation, a training company for future pilots.
Bruce looks forward to presenting to audiences that show an interest in business development, creativity and entrepreneurialism as well, of course, as those who are up for the immensely entertaining anecdotes of his life as a Metal musician and comparisons between music and business. As a more personal touch, Bruce also offers team building courses and experiences, focused around the world of flight which includes use of his flight simulator.
He is a truly awe-inspiring individual and his presentations are captivating and diverse. Bruce Dickinson is an essential addition to any event.
