DENISE PAGLIA-COLE

Denise is a sought-after speaker whose coaching style resonates from the boardroom to the sports arena. Her career has largely focused on helping people get out of their comfort zones – from helping executives overcome obstacles in becoming better speakers to introducing average women to weight and resistance training, affecting a cultural shift to make the sport mainstream.

Denise began her career as a globally-ranking fitness competitor and quickly became a highly-requested speaker and spokesperson, traveling across Japan, Europe and North America to represent top brands and speak to large audiences, from physicians to U.S. military members. She was later selected to host and write for ESPN’s Fitness Beach (viewed in 50 million homes at its peak), allowing her to impact audiences all over the world.

Denise has worked with numerous celebrities, from actors to well-known athletes and even a presidential candidate. She resides in New Jersey with her daughter, and loves to travel – from relaxing with her family in Italy to braving shark-infested waters in South Africa.

"Excellent room presence! Excellent role model for an authoritative, clear communicator. Stayed on target/on message with facilitating class environment."

Matt Bier, MarkLogic

" Working with Denise gives you a specific process to prepare for public appearances, a way to focus and center yourself, and most importantly the tools you need to connect fully with your audience to deliver a powerful message. She strives for the best in herself and others. Her passion is reflected in her work, the attention to details and adaptability in approaches for each topic of conversation. She seems to have the magic that keeps your audience glued to you! I highly recommend Denise Paglia Cole."
