His work with boards is highly regarded, which sees him work frequently, both locally and internationally, with government, corporate and not-for-profit organisations.

    Denis is recognised as a creative and strategic thinker, who has broad general management experience. It is this desirable melding of practical experience and knowledge, combined with his consulting and academic experience, that give Denis strong insights into the behavioural governance issues facing government, businesses and not-for-profit organisations.

    Denis has also contributed chapters for two management books and presented papers on governance issues at international and national conventions and conferences.
