“I love the coaching sessions! While I am a very committed person and work well when it comes to self-motivation, starting a business is a totally different ball game! The sessions are great because they give me a timeline and keep me on my toes – it’s great to have firm deadlines.”

“As for the actual process – I am finding your business knowledge really invaluable. I know about what I do but I also know that I don’t have the business experience that I desperately need, so every discussion we have is a learning process for me that I am applying to my thinking and actions. It like being in being in school again, and I simply LOVE learning!”

“I am getting so much value from our sessions. I find you’ve very understanding and you give me the impression that I am very important to you.  This is truly a great feeling after working solo for so long. You also take action and get things done, which is really awesome. Also, I feel that I can be honest with you, because I trust you completely.”

“Denise has worked with Quest as the Executive in charge of our strategic projects. Denise was tasked to undertake a full diagnosis of our Resource Centre. She conducted a detailed analysis of this environment with utmost diligence and inclusiveness. Her findings and subsequent recommendations resulted in a total turnaround of the culture and the way of work within the organisation. She instituted some key metrics and sound practices that would set us apart from the competition.

She is an astute businesswoman, highly conceptual, cognitive and pragmatic. She was appointed in November 2011 to re-engineer our Marketing and Sales department. She structured the business with key people, introduced innovative marketing and sales strategies.

Due to her influence I believe Quest is poised to take on the growth that we have set going forward. She is a great leader, team player and colleague with the highest ethical standards. She is a vibrant and energetic person, who will be an asset to any organisation. She will leave a gaping hole in our organisation. We regret her departure.”

“I worked closely with Denise during the tendering, evaluation and deployment stage of our enterprise ATS at Quest. Denise was a dream to work with — indefatigable, imaginative, brilliant, ethical and highly strategic in her thinking.

Without Denise, our project simply would not have succeeded. She drove a hard but livable bargain; she was able to obtain from us features we were not sure at the time we could deliver but ultimately with her help we did — in full and on time. She intuitively sensed what would be needed from within her organization, from a human resources and IT perspective, and tirelessly worked with others throughout to procure and make it available.

I could not recommend Denise more highly.”
