Denise was a fantastic opening keynote speaker for the Transformational CMO Assembly this past June. This Assembly is one of our most prestigious events of the year and we are always in need of an innovative speaker to start things off on the right foot. Denise’s presentation skills, warm personality, and industry knowledge were all well received and I hope to continue working with her for more of our programs in the future as numerous clients of ours took a lot away from getting to know her and listening to her speak.

Our goal for conferences and events is to 'engage, enlighten and entertain,' and boy, did Denise deliver on all three! She arduously prepared for our group’s event, conducting numerous interviews with people from across our enterprise so that she knew us, understood our challenges and how her methodologies could be put to best effect. Our audience of independent distribution business owners and executives from large manufacturing companies loved her message, and took home immediately actionable insight for their businesses … they loved Denise!
