I had the pleasure of working with Denise for many years while at the San Diego Convention Center, and would recommend Denise highly to any organization looking to add a talented manager to their
team. Denise is bright, educated (speaks multiple languages!), hard working and loyal. Her likeable, easy going demeanor allows her to assimilate easily into any group. Experienced in sales, with an
emphasis in convention facility and hotel sales. Bottom line, any organization would be fortunate to have Denise on their Team!

Denise not only provides great results with in-depth expertise and a high level of integrity, she is also personable, creative and on time with every project each step of the way. More than just a
service provider, Denise is a solution finder. She makes things happen, never allowing obstacles, missteps or attitudes to get in her way. She is equally adept working with a committee as she is
working with one person, and she ALWAYS provides results!

I know Denise through projects she has done for me, and others. Like myself, Denise is a consultant who understands the realities of interpersonal communication, milestones and deadlines. Denise
is a brilliant, proactive and intuitive. She is also a "technical guru". She has excellent people skills and has managed several successful teams. Denise has a way of motivating a team toward results
while keeping some levity in the environment. One thing I enjoy about Denise is her amazing ability to speak so many languages, I have seen her “save” several situations through soothing, effective

Over the 18 years I have known, and worked with Denise, she has always exhibited a fresh perspective and a professional demeanor. Her follow through is true to form and, while she excelled as a
Sales executive for the years we worked together, her latest creative endeavors suit her even more. With a vast industry knowledge, that only comes with time, she can now pull from a variety of
arrows in her quiver, each honed and ready to do battle, with a smile.

Denise is one of the most professional, detail oriented, motivated and overall wonderful person I know. During the 7 years we worked together, there was not one day that she was not passionate,

I have had the pleasure of working with Denise at the San Diego Convention Center for over 10 years. Denise has been a great mentor and leader to me. She is very knowledgeable in all facets of the
hospitality industry and is also very "technologically savvy". Denise has the ability to stay calm under pressure, which is definitely a plus in this industry. I would definitely recommend her for
any sort of assignment. She has great leadership skills, is very intuitive and will acclimate herself to a new role very quickly.

Denise is definitely passionate about Sales but more importantly to me, she is passionate about technology and all the beautiful results it can bring into the sales process and ultimately for
customer satisfaction. Denise quickly embraces and integrates new-to-market software functionalities and technology advices. I have known Denise to be one of the highest producing and effective sales
managers in this convention business. She knows how to structure a deal which satisfies the true needs of all parties.
