About Dennis: Dennis Vergne is a founding partner at RedQuadrant. Based on his experience, research, programme design and delivery, he is a recognised organisational change expert. Dennis has a passion for enabling transformational change that sticks, turning ideas into effective practice and behaviours. He holds an MSc in this field (Oxford – distinction) and belongs to an international network of reflective change practitioners – www.thechangeleaders.com. Although he is originally from Holland, since 2004 most of his work has been within the British public sector. Before this, he co-led a brave but failing effort to revolutionise childcare in Europe – by a setting up a company that would use and could afford the best children’s early years’ development and education practices. His experience also includes (before 2002) strategy and change work for a rather diverse (read: odd) variety of clients such as Belgium Government, Norsk Hydro, Motorola, Novartis and Lloyds TSB.
