About Heidi

“Heidi Dening is an authentic, resilient and gutsy self-leader who has courageously flipped adversity on its head and is now leaving her legacy by empowering others to do the same....”

Heidi Dening is a sought-after keynote speaker, award-winning business owner, author of an amazon best-selling self-leadership book called ‘Her Middle Name Is Courage’, and has over 20 years experience as an educator.

Since transforming her real-life setbacks such as a paralysing illness where she lost the use of her legs, to gunpoint kidnappings, from tsunami terror, and firebomb attacks, she now shares her impactful strategies from stage and in workplaces so others can become the courageous self-leaders they were destined to be. This results in organisations improving their culture, retention
and bottom line.


Heidi hates seeing people not live their life to the fullest. That is why she has made it her mission to empower as many people as she can on how to strengthen their resilience and embrace self-leadership strategies so they can overcome adversity and rise out of tough times stronger than ever.

She believes that this will then send a ripple effect of vitality, resilience and optimism into workplaces, into families, and into communities… potentially
improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of people globally
