Denise has over 20 years’ HR experience in a range of sectors including FMCG, Professional Services and Hotels and Leisure in national and international, single and multi-site roles. Having worked at a senior level in multi-cultural environments she has worked all over the world including the UK, Moscow, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
Whilst having worked within large corporate companies and also SMEs, it is in the SME sector where there is a sense of making a really big difference and, for Denise, it satisfies her need to be hands-on and have a real connection at all levels of the business. Denise works with business owners to improve employee performance providing practical employment law advice and support to small and medium sized businesses. Running a small business of her own gives Denise a real understanding of the demands and intensity of being a business owner and this informs her work with a clear appreciation that HR advice always needs to be personal to the business, practical and pragmatic.
