Denise Brosseau is a highly experienced facilitator (in person, hybrid and virtual) who has worked with corporate, non-profit, and education clients for 15+ years to create and run strategy sessions and team-building retreats and facilitate large meetings of many different kinds. She is highly adept at identifying the right structure, framework, model, or tool to create meaningful interaction and reach desired outcomes. She most enjoys working on first-of-their-kind meetings and sorting out large, messy challenges by bringing people together, creating opportunities for each to be heard, and then crafting interactions that help them move the needle on their most important ideas.
