Facilitation & Training

Deni is a seasoned facilitator with a pragmatic approach. Participants say that she is knowledgeable and motivating, and that her workshops are stimulating, relevant and productive. This is achieved through appropriately blending designed input, discussion, peer sharing and relevant in-the-moment insights. She has a wealth of experience in working closely with clients to design and facilitate a diversity of interventions for leadership, team and talent development, as well as change and transformation.

Across her career, she has designed and/ or facilitated hundreds of

  • face-to-face, outdoor and virtual workshops/events/programmes for 4 to 80 people
  • 60min sessions to two-day workshops to 6-month programmes with follow-up coaching

Overall, she focuses development and facilitation interventions on achieving tangible outcomes for the participants and their organisation.

Just a quick note to say that Deni has been doing an amazing job supporting me with the client’s change management project. Deni and I facilitated a workshop with the Nordics & Baltics leadership team yesterday. As you both know this project is pushing the boundaries of what we as a company can do, which requires a lot of flexibility, positivity and thinking on our feet. And that was what Deni did brilliantly. Plus, she has strong subject matter expertise in change management that helps a lot.

Global Solutions VP

Deni facilitated a course on presentation Skills that I was privileged to attend. Every word she said, every exercise we carried out was thought-provoking, uplifting and really illustrated the ‘Awakener’ part of Deni’s description of herself. I went away from this 2-day workshop knowing I had met someone life—changing – she is gentle, unarguably knowledgeable and seems to be able to influence the people in the room just by being there. Thank you, Deni and best wishes.

Scientific Team Leader

The whole course was excellent. Very relevant and very informative. I hope to be able to achieve this standard of training on my courses.
