Moving Beyond The Herd.JPG

Moving beyond the herd

In life we often find ourselves going with the flow even when we don't agree.  But what happens when we make the decision to break from the herd and march to a beat of our own drum.  How do we find the confidence to challenge the establishment and set a course that takes us out of our comfort zone, breaks down barriers and challenges "the establishment". In a poignant yet humorous conversation, Denise will explore methods of breaking free from the herd or mob mentality and charting a course to pursue the path that you dream of.

Seven ‘Up’ Theory

In order to get what you want sometimes you have to just come right out and ask. But sometimes finding the words is so difficult. Denise has created seven easy steps designed to empower audiences to ask for and receive what they want. Her seven ‘up’ theory is rooted in good old-fashioned common sense that will remind your audience of how easy it is to ask for what they want when they remained focused on the ‘Up’.

Mentor Mentee Model

The mentor – mentee – model relationship is critical for success in the workplace. As our careers evolve we find ourselves operating within each role and the relationships with those we interact with are looking to us to bring our best selves to the relationship. Mentor – Mentee Model provides a in-depth look into the three roles and provides tools for understanding and managing each.

Workshop and Panels

I am an exciting panelist and can enhance the conversation about an array of topics involving, equity, entrepreneurship and communicating in the age of technology.  

Entre Equality.jpg

Women are opening up businesses at a record pace.  The reason? Owning your own business allows you to set the agenda, create the culture and develop a pay structure that represents your goals.

But while more women are choosing business ownership issues of equality and equity still stand as piercing obstacles and prevent women from achieving success at that same rate as their male counterparts.

As a business owner for a decade, Denise brings a wealth of knowledge about this topic and offers up tools to help women not only achieve but surpass their entrepreneurial goals. 


The advent of social media has changed how we communicate with one another. We now live in an era where the majority of our population has lived in a wired world.

As more social media platforms are introduced and our reliance on them for connectivity increases the consequences of inappropriate use can change the course of ones life in an instant.

In a lively and interactive workshop Denise offers teens simple tips for effective social media use and shows them how to still maintain their personalities, own their voices and ensure they are heard by those within their networks.
