Self-Leadership, Resilience and Vitality
- Health & Lifestyle
Dr Heidi Dening is an authentic, resilient and gutsy self-leader who has courageously flipped adversity on it’s head and is now leaving her legacy by empowering others to do the same. Her elegant, yet powerful presence on stage will leave your audiences wanting to do more, give more, have more and be more.
When she woke one morning and mysteriously couldn’t walk for the following eight-months she thought that would be her last big challenge. Since then though, she has been forced into a car at gunpoint in South Africa; made what she thought was the final goodbye call to her husband due to a tsunami; been amongst hundreds of thousands of Rwandan refugees after the 1994 genocide and during a volunteer trip, she narrowly escaped being burnt alive when petrol bombs were thrown at her bedroom while she slept.
By transforming these real-life setbacks into opportunities, Heidi now shares her impactful strategies from stage and in work-places so others can become the courageous self-leaders they were destined to be. When this happens, organisations improve their culture, their retention and their bottom line because their team member can finally reach their true potential. With over 20 years-experience in business, education and health, Heidi is a sought-after keynote speaker, passionate educator, and author of an inspiring self-leadership book called Her Middle Name Is Courage.
She has received many awards including an Australia Day Merit Award and WestPac’s International Women’s Day Local Hero Award. She is the only Australian to be selected for a global advisory position that looks at how our workplaces impact our stress levels, resilience, productivity and mental health, and she is also on the honour roll for the global #CelebratingWomen project.

Heidi hates seeing people not live their life to the fullest. That is why she has a mission to educate and inspire as many self-leaders as she can on how they can strengthen their resilience so they can step up, speak out and share their unique brilliance with the world. She believes that this will then send a ripple effect of vitality and optimism into workplaces, families, and communities… potentially improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
