why am i UNIQUE?
My name is Denise Durgin and I am a sales and marketing veteran with 28 years in the travel industry with Marriott International, The Ritz-Carlton and Host Hotels & Resorts. In my coaching practice, I combine my experience and passion for others' to succeed in two ways.
Career Coaching: As a business professional that pivoted in my own career, I understand the uncertainties and uncomfortable thoughts of change. Questions like; what do I do first? How do I know which industry is right for me? What about the financial implications of my decisions? How do I amp up my LinkedIn profile? There is a lot at stake, whatever stage you are in your career-just starting out or trying to maximize the rest of your career. I help you minimize your fear and maximize the excitement of change into action!
Business Coaching: I specialize in leading sales teams with a proven game plan for success. Many of the challenges sales teams face other organizations do as well. Leading change, shifting strategy, creating a winning culture of productivity and recognition for success to name a few. I welcome your most challenging situations.
During my tenure in sales, marketing and asset management I partnered and worked with hundreds of sales professionals at over 200 hotels within various brands, worked with dozens of hotel ownership groups and liaised with travel industry experts at places like Expedia and Booking.com. I led a sales division at Marriott, held executive positions and witnessed one of the largest hotel merger and acquisition from an owners' purview.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel and Tourism Management from UMASS Amherst, Isenberg School of Business where I volunteer as a mentor to the HTM School. In 2016, I earned my Executive Master’s degree in Leadership at Georgetown University, McDonough School of Business. I am a certified executive coach through The Center for Executive Coaching.
