As organizations ask their leaders to step into the role of recognized expert or thought leader, understanding the core elements of the journey from leader to thought leader, is essential.

In this popular, well researched, and highly engaging presentation, Denise shares the learnings of working with hundreds of aspiring thought leaders as well as her own inspiring ‘accidental thought leadership’ journey. She helps audiences understand and identify their unique motivations for building a following around their ideas and shares what every leader and individual needs to know to build visibility for themselves, their team, and their ideas.

Perfect for organizations with a cross-section of attendees (either corporate or association based), this keynote focuses on the seven steps to unlocking a whole new level of accomplishment and achievement as well as career and personal satisfaction.



In January of 2018, Laurence Fink, the chief executive of BlackRock, wrote a highly unusual letter to the CEOs in his company’s portfolio. In it, he urged them to think beyond their bottom line and to understand that their businesses must serve a social purpose.

In this provocative and inspiring presentation, Denise explores what it takes to meet that call and why creating a thought-leading organization matters now more than ever. She helps leaders understand the three key elements of success: how to create a recognizable point of view; nurture and incentivize the right skills and behaviors throughout their organization; and build an ecosystem of followers and champions to amplify and scale their efforts.

Perfect for organizations ready to take a stand, lead a cause, and use their clout and bully pulpit to forward ideas and values that matter to them.


Change is the new normal. There is always an opportunity to do things differently and (hopefully) better. But becoming a successful change agent requires a whole new set of skills, behaviors, and mindsets. This program explores what it takes to develop and set a vision, leverage your personal brand to connect to and influence the right people, communicate effectively, and lead with purpose. We’ll also discover how to scale change by using thought leadership techniques to build champions, develop frameworks, and mobilize others inside and outside your organization to get on board with the change underway.

This session is one part inspiration, one part strategy, and three parts actionable ideas you can take away and put to work immediately.

Perfect for organizations seeking to align and motivate their leaders and individual contributors to be more effective change agents.
