    "On the 'Town Square' we count on 'The Bryce is Right!' for timely and accurate Political, Social, Business and Humorous commentary three days a week. Our listeners depend on Tim's wit and wisdom and he always delivers from beautiful Palm Harbor Florida. Talk Radio listeners have many choices, none better than Tim Bryce."

    -John Siggins.
    WJTN (News Talk 1240)
    "The Town Square"

    "I just wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how amazing your work has been for us at News Talk Florida. Each article is more compelling than the next and I must say it is a true joy to have you as part of our team!"

    -Jim Williams
    Managing Editor at News Talk Florida

    "Tim has some amazing insights into so many things - he's a very bright guy with a sense of humor too!"

    - Carol Van Drie
    Lansing, MI, USA

    "A couple of months ago, I clicked on a hot article by Tim Bryce. I liked what I read so I went to his site to read more and I am so glad that I did. Tim is one of those folks I call a "sleeper". He is here but he just goes quietly about his craft not necessarily seeking or needing anything from anyone. He is one of those people that you just instantly like. Judging from the way he writes, I really believe that he has the ability to bring some order and understanding into just about any state of chaos. He can attack most any subject and take it from a new perspective. It will always be interesting. He can be very objective and fair but I suspect that he can tell it like it is when he wants to do that. He writes in a way that just inspires. He slowly takes things apart and puts them back together right before your eyes. When he finishes with a subject, you really understand it or you really understand how you feel about it. He still believes in those things that made America great, work ethic, honor, duty, your word, consideration for your fellowman. When you read his work, you will believe in those things as well. Tim can get any subject down to the reader's level and get the intimidation out of it for the reader. He does that by creating an empathy with his reader and he does it well. Just reading his work has created a lot of reader awareness in me for my writing. If you have doubts, go to his site and read the piece on cigars. You will see. If I were directing a hostage crisis or mediating a labor contract, I would want Tim Bryce with me. I'd win too!"

    - Wayne Brown
    Arlington, TX, USA

    "The Blog description is so right. You might not always agree with Tim but he always makes you stop and think, and I mean universally. Even being from Finland, the topics are so relevant that it is a pleasure to ponder them."

    - Timo Kettunen

    "We engaged Tim to bring the PRIDE methodology to Atlantic Electric. The methodology, along with an estimating system we developed locally, allowed us to bring in projects on time, on or under budget, and within 3% = - on labor estimates. If I sound like a bigot in favor of using development methodologies I am. The methodology was so flexible that it allowed us to model our process for new tools and different development languages."

    - Michael Barnes
    Assistant Director Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid at UNC
    Wilmington, NC

    "Mr. Bryce's presentation to our group of South Florida Business Analysts took place at Carnival Cruise Lines offices in Q1/ 06. Per my request to him, he responded in the affirmative with professional grace and flexibility per format/content. His presentation was engaging, highly intellectual, with clear focus and, in short, rewarding for all attendees. Mr. Bryce is extremely knowledgeable, well published, possesses a large idea-base and is very generous in sharing, and discussing, his life-work, including overseas-work anecdotes, with other professionals regardless of their seniority or level of experience."

    - Robert Goldman
    Technical Business Analyst at Citigroup
    Miami/Fort Lauderdale Area
    Director, South Florida Business Analysis Group

    "Tim has deep skills in project management and Information Technology. With his three decades of experience in consulting with the "PRIDE" family of IT management tools, around the world, he understands the IT industry issues with a truely global perspective. Tim is also very experienced in corporate communications and technical marketing, providing effective leadership in that area during the time that we worked together at M&JB. Tim is a great guy to work with, and a real team player."

    - Oliver Hagerman
    Systems Integrator at Sun Microsystems
    Cincinnati, OH

    "While at Elizabeth Arden I had the pleasure to work closely with Tim on the implementation of the "PRIDE" methodology on a global basis within the Arden IT organization. Tim proved to be a subject matter expert on "PRIDE" and on the architecture required within an organization to support it. Since then Tim and I have continued to collaberate on IT initatives and issues of the day. Tim is highly articulate, intelligent, entraprenaurial, and a state of the art IT professional."

    - Michael B. Snyder
    I.T. Consultant
    Sarasota, FL

    "Early in my career at Atlantic Electric we purchased a project management methodology and a system development methodology from Tim's company, M. Bryce & Associates. I found Tim to be more than just a vendor selling a product. I viewed Tim as more of a mentor and coach with respect to project management and system development. His products always seemed like just a means to the end. Tim's mentoring and coaching helped me grow professionally more than any class I have ever taken. And you can take it from me, even to this day; Bryce's Laws are spot on."

    - Tom Pietropola
    Business Architect at EMC/Technical Solutions
    Boston, MA

    "I find Tim's blogs insightful and thought provoking. Whether you agree or disagree, they make you think."

    - Tom Pietropola

    "Tim Bryce - rants on - and I often recoil from the tone but often there's some uncluttered truth being written out loud."

    - Sarah Farrugia
    London, UK

    "Tim has the conviction and passion that transforms his dedication to information technology management into a piece of art. I highly recommend his free articles, essays, bulletins, methodologies, and podcasts (which are in clear English terms) to any information technology professional who could find them on-line."

    - Fernando Doylet Auson
    Programmer at The School Board of Broward County
    Miami, FL

    "Tim's writing can be inciteful as when he speaks of the virtues that people work towards. Tim does not shy away from 'poking-the-bear' as when death-by-committee has the appearance of being 'well thought out plans,' as when the socialization of hard-earned assets becomes a welfare gravy train."

    - Tom Mcclintock
    Norwood, Massachusetts

    "Refreshing, new points of view are Tim's hallmark. Keep it up!"

    - Doug Connell
    Charlottesville, Virginia

    "Liberal Kryptonite (book) is a collection of essays that are serious, but they're also humorous; it's a good read.
    It's an entertaining read; I think you'll really enjoy it. (Tim) covers a lot of topics in a way that is easy to understand and fun to read."

    - Joy Tiz
    "The Joy Tiz Show"
    KSON-FM (97.3), San Diego, CA

    "You should be very proud. You did so much, more than most people, to make this election possible. The I-4 corridor is always in the news, and you were right in the middle of it, sending out the club mailings, writing for The Huffington Post and keeping everyone’s hopes up. Your signature 'Keep the Faith' was always there. This should be the memory of a life time. You were a big part of the most exciting and important election in 40 years. You fought the good fight, just as Donald Trump did. You refused to be beaten down. I salute you.

    - Larry Marlin
    North Pinellas Republican Club, FL

    (Regarding the 2016 Presidential Election) - "Jim Downes (President of the North Pinellas Republican Club) said some very nice things about you at the Christmas party. He said you kept him optimistic about the election of Trump. He was a doubter and you helped elevate his thoughts about the possibility of a Trump victory. I have to concur. I did not doubt, however, but certainly needed support. Thank you for all your research and steadfastness is keeping us in line."

    - Pam McAloon
    Secretary, Pinellas Country Republican Executive Committee

    "Tim is unquestionably a team leader in all that he does, and is able to manage multiple projects with an efficiency that's second to none. His no-nonsense, to-the-point approach and friendly demeanor produces amazing results, repeatedly. I have every confidence in recommending Tim to any project or endeavor."

    - Joseph Duhamel
    Tampa, FL

    "And by the way, has anyone told him what an excellent contributor he is to our club, and to the city of Palm Harbor. His articles are awesome, as well as his commentaries."
