Hello, brilliant rebels.

REBEL TALENT founder, book author and Senior Contributor at FORBES, Denise Brodey writes and speaks about helping diverse minds at work with eye-opening candor and uncommon humor.

PRAISE For Denise's Work and Rebel Talent

"If you care to work with someone quick and smart, who sees the world in fresh and unique ways, and who has the energy and experience to turn all of that into something good for your business, call Denise".

—Scott Stein, USA TODAY

"In today’s marketplace, there are few people like Denise who can speak to both the human and business side of being inclusive and help you to create programming and collateral that sticks."

—Tricia Roth, Director of Marketing and Engagement at Travelability Summit

"Denise moderated our Worldwide Mental Health Day event this past year.  She listened, gave everyone time to talk and was engaging. I’d have her back to speak at any time especially as it pertains to her expertise on mental health and opening up dialogues in the workplace."—Jennifer DaSilva, Berlin Cameron 

“Denise is the ultimate inclusion rebel! I love her energy and passion around inclusion for all. She's open, honest, and a true voice for the community.” 
—KR Liu, Accessibility Executive, Speaker

"Denise is highly knowledgeable about all things related to disability inclusion and mental health awareness. As the world becomes increasingly diverse, her writing is ever-more timely." —Ruth Umoh, FORBES 

REBEL TALENT connects two worlds— the neurodiverse and the more traditional thinkers in various ways. With students and career services, we are preparing young adults who are neurodiverse to be their best self in interviews. In Human Resources, we are helping to redefine the recruiting process. This is a touchy topic. Our goal, always, is collaboration first. Disruption second.
