Keynote Presentations 

"I have been working on this annual conference for eight years. In all that time, with 3 or 4 keynote presenters at each event, there have only been three standing ovations... they were all for you."

A few years ago, that generous and sincere comment was made to Denise by a conference organizer. That kind of feedback is continually supported by those in her audiences - 96% or more consistently rate Denise's Keynote presentations as "Excellent". If you are planning a conference and you want participants to be not only empowered by the content of your program; but also inspired to go back to their lives and work with more purpose and enthusiasm, you need to seriously consider the unique contribution that Denise can make to your event.

Complementary to her keynote addresses, Denise will readily follow up with one or more Concurrent Workshops on these or related topics.

Customer Feedback/Comments

"Denise has presented several times at The National Consultation on Career Development (NATCON), an annual conference which draws over 1400 delegates, and is consistently rated as 'excellent' on the conference evaluations. Delegate comments include ('Most amazing motivational speaker I have ever seen!' ' Exceptional, excellent, enthusiastic, exciting, vibrant, energetic!'). I can always be confident that she will know her audience, understand their issues and deliver a session that has that rare combination of substance and inspiration. She is truly gifted and committed to her work."

~ Lou Hawkes, Coordinator, NATCON

"Having seen Denise speak before, my expectations were high. She exceeded my wildest expectations in her keynote address in San Diego. I have been putting on counseling and human service conferences and workshops for almost 30 years and can say that Denise ranks in the top 1% of presenters. She is both smooth and spontaneous; entertaining and connecting; motivating and calming - all at the same time."

Your outstanding presentation delivered a clear message in a very unique way. You captivated the audience and everybody benefited from your message. I have received a lot of credit for choosing you to speak, and so many people thanked me for having you on our program and your excellent presentation. I will highly recommend you to any organization as the keynote speaker. Denise, you are special. I truly look forward to seeing you again."
