Customer Testimonials

Denise has proven to be a very capable and professional facilitator and educator for our business. She has helped our staff become proficient in concepts and skills that they were unfamiliar with and they now utilise these to add significant value to our business

Lees Seymour, Managing Director, Nelson Forests Ltd.

I worked with Denise on a complex and long term project on building employment capital in the State Sector. Denise's first class mind was able to continually navigate the multi-layered facets of the project's scope across both the internal audience and the numerous agencies who were the ultimate clients for this work. Drawing on her rich experience she challenged, questioned and articulated the issues with both humour and deftness of touch. I would not hesitate to recommend Denise's work. She is knowledgeable, dedicated, bright, politically astute and great to work with.

Michael Linley, Managing Director, BrandCapital International

We wished to include an educational session within an inaugural Conference for key members of our wider Southern Regional Team. Denise was recommended to us via a local Business mentor. She matched our needs with an excellent and relevant topic. On the day - Flight delays necessitated Denise to think laterally to reconfigure her session which she achieved without compromising the value to the attendees. Well done and thanks Denise for a memorable addition to our meeting.

Ian Briggs, Marlborough/Nelson/West coast Provincial Manager, Sky TV

When an employee of ours was needing to be spoken to about their low performance, poor management and bullying manner towards other staff members, we contacted Denise for advice on how to handle the matter. Her expertise and helpfulness in instructing us on how to go about this delicate situation was very much appreciated by us both. As Company Directors, we acknowledged that this sort of behaviour is unacceptable and needed to be quickly and carefully acted upon. We were also mindful that these types of workplace issues can very difficult to manage effectively. Denise’s swift, thorough, accurate and personal approach and advice helped us resolve the problems without any further repercussions. For these reasons, we would highly recommend Denise for any such advice and support.

Directors, Insulation company, Nelson

Denise planned and facilitated an excellent development day for my team, which less experienced facilitators would find quite daunting because some of my team members are also skilled and experienced facilitators. However, Denise had asked the right questions to really understand what the team needed, and planned a fast-paced and fun day. Through a combination of focused group work and full team sessions, Denise expertly guided us to meet our objectives and get the most from our time together. We have some more work to do, and will be inviting Denise back to help keep us focused and on track.

Belinda Wheatley, Service Manager Nelson Marlborough District Health Board, August 2013

Denise this was a great 4 hours. Your presentation seemed to be run with little effort, however I recognise how hard it is to run an hour session, so you are truly skilled at this! Thank you for all your help.

Maura Foley, Team Leader, NZ Blood Service

“Working with Denise provided me with an opportunity to reflect on my working practices. I was able to develop an understanding of what influenced my behaviour and establish effective strategies to manage areas that are challenging. Denise is an effective, professional coach who gave me sufficient time to process information and formulate ideas. In our sessions we managed to combine some deep reflection with some really useful practical tips on workplace practice. Denise has definitely added to my own tool box as a manager. I feel that I have become a better professional thanks to the sessions we had together.”
