David’s Story

David Bruce’s story begins in 1980’s Scotland, where he graduated in Accountancy and Computer Science before qualifying as a chartered accountant.

His enthusiasm for Asian studies, as well as an entrepreneurial urge, took him to Hong Kong in 1988.

There he founded his first business using the cutting-edge technology of the day – the fax machine.

This was the start of a 36-year journey, during which his newly discovered teaching skills, thirst for knowledge, and business acumen led to him establishing several successful companies in various field.

As he himself admits: “I was no expert in some of these fields. However, by combing up-to-date reading with a confident demeanor, I carried it off.”

Today David is a fledging Connection Economy entrepreneur starting out on a completely new intellectual and commercial adventure.

With his company ‘Executive Knowledge’ and its high value content platform ‘Examinator.Online’, he is on the brink of creating his own monopoly.

In 2018 David reconnected with Stephen Barnes and decided he wanted to learn all about the Connection Economy and how to go about building a monopoly.

So, in the months following, Stephen and David spent many Saturdays imparting and receiving everything there is to know about Intelligent Content Marketing and the resulting material is now known as ‘Monopoly – The Planner’.
