Our Client Testimonials

From our work. To their words.

“Denise is an amazing thought partner who brought great value and knowledge leading the re-visioning process for the BASE’s National Brand Marketing & Communications Plan. She leads with inspiration and passion and was so easy to work with. Denise is well respected and admired in her field and we were extremely excited to partner with MDK Brand Management.”

Stephanie Monteiro-Merritt
Chief Organization Officer

“Don’t think (the personal branding workshops) could get any better. Thank you. It made me believe in myself again.”

“MDK Brand Management’s ‘Define Your Brand, Own Your Future’ program has been an asset to the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department because of its ability to help returning citizens chart a positive course post-incarceration. Among the largest obstacles that people face after incarceration are their CORI records and the stigma often associated with them. MDK’s workshops teach participants to not only regain control of their personal narratives, but they also help to restore the confidence needed to succeed post-release.”

“Denise is an energetic presenter who weaves her lived experience with lessons she’s learned over her career. Our participants from our Women’s Leadership Program found great value in her presentation about ‘Establishing and Maintaining Brand Credibility.’ She was easy to work with and provided such value to the women in this group, particularly among emerging leaders.”

Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce

“This was a great workshop and I really appreciate that you came here to help and inspire us when most would rather forget us.”
“The best group I have done. Not once did I wander off. I wish there was more. I would take it again! Thank you very much! You’re an inspiration to all!”

"Define Your Brand. Own Your Future."

“Denise presented to more than 100 select high school student-athletes during the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) Annual Indoor Track &Field Recognition Breakfast. As MIAA’s new assistant director, I was breaking the norm when I invited a person outside the track and field world to serve as the keynote. Leading up to the event, I spoke with one of the MIAA coaches about Denise being our breakfast speaker. During that brief conversation, his reaction was neutral. However, after the breakfast, the coach stopped by my office and expressed his initial concern about my selection of Denise as the keynote speaker because she was not from the track and field world. He then immediately added, ‘but she knocked it out the park!’ Thank you, Denise!”

Keith McDermott
Assistant Director, MIAA

“Thank you for helping to push us to a new level of excellence! You’re remarkable!”

National Basketball Wives Association

“Denise did an exemplary job leading a 4-hour training on branding and marketing for a nonprofit audience. She prepared a thoughtful and comprehensive curriculum, delivered it with energy and enthusiasm, and engaged the group. The outcome: Her evaluations were outstanding (ranked in the highest 10% of trainers). Denise was a great and professional collaborator. I look forward to the next time I can tap into her expertise.”

Gordon Gottlieb
TDC Consultant and Non-Profit Organization Management

“MDK’s workshop at Hasbro was a great success. It was interactive, fun, impactful and immediately applicable. Workshop attendees understood the importance of building and curating their personal brand and wrote their elevator pitch on the spot based on the guidance from the session. Denise is deeply knowledgeable about the subject matter and engages her audience through storytelling. I strongly recommend the MDK methodology for anyone who is interested in building and maintaining their personal brand.”
