The Milwaukee Business Journal is unveiling the 2019 Women of Influence winners this week.
One of the recipients is Denise Thomas. She's the founder of the Effective Communication Coach, LLC. and she relishes in helping others be their best.
“My business focuses on transforming both emerging and existing professionals into extraordinary leaders by mastering the art of effective communication,” said Thomas.
She says she became passionate about connecting with others at a very young age.
“I started actually when I was three. I was the student in the classroom that was smart but talked too much.”
Her passion grew from there. She figured out a way to create a business out of her love of communicating and helping companies become even better at what they do.
“As I began my professional career, I noticed that communication was a thing that was socialized as a soft skill. For me it was something that was very important as it relates to the success of projects, whether it's small or large scale and just the overall success of the business,” explained Thomas.
Thomas has advice for women striving to be there best everyday.
“Know who you are, know your worth, live everyday as if it were your last, and surround yourself only with people who believe in you, just as much as you do.”
Another group of winners will be announced Tuesday and Wednesday.
