Type Of Speaker


She was an inspiration to all of us and her warmth, passion and infectious enthusiasm about the Olympics was the ideal way to start engaging our staff in this hugely exciting project. We are looking forward to a long relationship with her and are thrilled that she will be a part of our own Olympic journey.

InterContinental Hotels

We have been organising and running major events for some years and engaged some high profile speakers, but Denise wowed our delegates like no other. Her sporting achievements and charity work are well known, but her ability to win over a demanding audience with charm and charisma and motivate them to be the best they can be is unsurpassed.

Sight Care Group

Denise’s interaction with our hosts and delegates was nothing less than exemplary and we were inspired by her energy and genuine love for meeting people and sharing her amazing stories. She is a true inspiration and the feedback we have received from our hosts has been fantastic. We look forward to working with her again soon.
