My mantra is.. Don’t fret. We’re all just making this up!

HR Expert, Leadership Coach + Emcee

Leadership Development HR

I am a highly experienced HR leader with a wide and varied background as a coach of HR Leaders and Executives. My highly engaging style brings personality fun and the ability to resonate with people from a wide range of backgrounds. Easy to relate to, I bring my experience as an entertainer, and  life experience to help develop future leaders. You won’t be ‘over facilitated’ just assisted to have great conversations.  

Emcee and Event Hosting

I use humour, pragmatism, the occasional song and bucketloads of real experience  as MC for corporate events. I regularly work with small groups and large conferences to inject fun into their events. I can help you to create an engaging experience that will be impactful and memorable for all the right reasons.

Denise is a joy to work with. She focuses on the strategic goals and manages each day to take practical and reliable steps forward – to bring out the best results for the business. She manages stakeholder relationships exceptionally well – spending the time to understand what others are working towards and finding ways to collaborate on meaningful outcomes. Denise‘s broad experience across different sectors and disciplines gives her a range of perspectives to understand what her stakeholders are really looking for – and then determine the most practical and best way to get the outcome.
