Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Bangkok - The Audience Loved Her

“We had the absolute pleasure of working with Heidi throughout the 2019 Future of Leadership series in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Bangkok. The audience loved what she brought to the stage and the great learnings she shared for all in the attendance. She was equally as delightful to work with off stage which is hugely important to us. We loved working with Heidi and I have no doubt if you book her you will be just as thrilled.”

Peter Baines, Company Director, Hands Across The Water

Sold Out Within 24hrs

“I have had the pleasure of working with Heidi after engaging her to speak at a breakfast event on International Women’s Day. Heidi is without doubt one of the best speakers I have worked with, ensuring that her presentation was tailored to fit the needs of the audience and our business. Her knowledge in the wellness space is impeccable, and her ability to engage the audience and create an interactive atmosphere to facilitate open discussion and sharing is outstanding. Heidi’s presentation attracted the most attendees to our breakfast session to date, selling out within the first 24hrs of release. I would highly recommend Heidi to speak at an event or run a workshop directly with your team. In addition to the quality of her content, she is also just great and easy to work with.

Sarah Ferraina, Head of Marketing & Communications, Beaumont People

In the modern business environment, the deep expertise and practical strategies that Heidi empowers us with is a much needed and welcome change. If you are looking for ideas to recognise the early signs of work fatigue and burnout in your profession, Heidi has strategies to combat even the darkest of storms. Heidi comes with my highest possible recommendation!”

Inspirational Story-teller

“Heidi was an inspirational story-teller who came at just the right time for our team. After a year of big changes and developments, some of our resilience levels were a bit dented. Her practical tips to immediately improve our self-care and with it our focus, productivity and self-leadership have really set this fantastic team on a path to a wonderful end of year and an even better future.”

Melissa Partington, Director, Physiocise

Authentic and Inspirational

“We had the pleasure of Heidi Dening speaking at our Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth conferences this year. She is professional, always prepared and easy to work with. Heidi is authentic, inspirational and provides the audience with useful leadership and burnout-prevention tips that they can use in their everyday life and at work. The online scorecard that she provided for our delegates meant that they were engaged with our event before it even started, were encouraged to implement micro-changes from what they learnt, and they could then track their improvements after they went home. Feedback from our surveys was excellent and we thank Heidi for sharing her experiences and expertise with us and making a difference.”

Judith Beck, CEO, Financial Executive Women

The Feedback We Received Was Unanimously Positive

“Heidi deserves her reputation, as she slotted in seamlessly with our line up of speakers (senior executives and leaders from AT&T and Westpac, for example) at the Company Culture & Disruptive Leadership Summit ’17. I would recommend Heidi to not only engage and inspire an audience but get them to think differently – and actually move.”

Julie Alexander, Executive Director, Changing Change International

Highlight Of My Day

“Heidi presented at a Culture Change conference that I attended. Her wellness sessions were relevant, practical and most importantly, fun! It was the highlight of the day for me, and we immediately booked her for our company’s staff summit because of this.”
