Denis migrated to Perth, in Western Australia, from Canada in the mid 90’s. He managed to turn his passion for adventure, people, nature and rock climbing into a career and a legacy. Through a series of fortunate and unfortunate incidents, encounters, challenges, sacrifices, and hard work Denis quickly worked his way up in the Industrial Rope Access industry. After many years working around the globe on often high-risk projects with challenging situations Denis embarked on an entrepreneurial journey that changed an industry and many lives along with it.
Denis co-founded what became Australia’s largest Industrial Rope Access company. The journey began with an unrelenting belief that things could be done better and more efficiently than what the industry and workforce had become accustomed to. The company was built through believing in people and having strong core values, which quickly created a healthy thriving organisation.
This belief created a movement and cultivated an industry leading company culture which transformed groups of individuals in to ultra-high performing teams who successfully delivered and safely executed high profile, technically challenging high-risk projects carried out in Australia. Along with the success, there were some significant tests and confronting challenges which provided some valuable lessons and confirmed the resolve of those involved.
Since then, Denis has sold his company and has embarked on a journey of self-discovery, growth and transformation, sharing the lessons learned from his experiences and inspiring others to do the same. Through his passion Discovery Development Partners was created which focuses on supporting progressive organisations to achieve more through partnership and transformation.
