Denise Wozniak We were pleased to have Denise speak to our group of 30 analysts at the end of a two-day work session.  Denise spoke about strategies for building personal resilience framed within the context of her personal story.  The topic of building resilience was timely as this session was held at a time when our work unit was in the midst of resolving significant challenges. Denise is an engaging speaker able to relate the wisdom from her own personal experiences and learnings with humour, cheerfulness and a unique approach to interacting with an audience.
