Planning an Event?

We hope you’ve arrived at this page because you are entertaining the idea of having Denise present at your conference, conduct an in-service training for your staff, or deliver a seminar to a wider network in your community, city or state/province.

Never hesitate to contact us if you would like to know more about Denise’s work. Believe us, there is no “hard sales” approach here. We don’t want Denise going anywhere unless we are highly confident that she will make our customer happy by meeting their expectations, making a valuable contribution to their organization, and having a significant impact on those in her audience. At whatever stage you are at, we’ll be happy to talk to you about your event, whether it is something already in the planning stage – or just something you are considering. Once we know what you are looking for or thinking about, we’ll just do our best to give you a clear picture of how we can best meet your needs and what costs will be involved… and we will respect your decision to proceed or not.

"Denise is truly a gifted and powerful presenter. She has greatly impacted the ways my students at San Diego State University think about how to support the needs of people with disabilities and facilitate the ability of people with disabilities to fulfill their dreams and potential. She has the ability to energize attendees about this important work and see new possibilities and directions they had not considered before."
