Plans are all well and good but effective and efficient implementation is what counts. I understand what it means to ‘walk the talk’ – and what needs to be done and by whom to get things done. So I work with executive teams to create the big picture, and then coach and support them to action and deliver the plan to implement the strategy successfully (often as NED).

I am particularly focused on the practical elements of ‘operationalising’ plans, balanced with ways of capturing hearts and minds and aligning behaviours.

"First-hand experience and pragmatism"

We are extremely impressed with Denise's understanding of our business and the issues we were facing in our attempt to drive our business forward. Equally, her wealth of first-hand experience of our industry and in particular as an owner-manager of a very successful business herself, gives Denise a real insight into our challenges. Finally, we are impressed with her enthusisam and approachability. All this coupled with her other personal qualities means that our team is inspired and motivated. She is fantastic and we love working with her!
