Youth Speaker Denise Winston

Inspiring. Engaging. Informative.

    Denise Winston has been connecting with teens for more than two decades as a speaker, teacher and mentor. She believes that “everything happens for a reason and every experience prepares you for the future.” Despite having to live on her own since age 16 and having a mother who committed suicide, Denise found a way to use her adversity and experiences to help herself and contribute to others in a meaningful way.

    A leading financial authority, author, media personality and 25-year veteran of the banking industry, Denise is an expert on the new cable show Money Made Easy and a frequent contributor to numerous media outlets including ABC TV, FOX Business, Woman’s Day and Martha Stewart Radio. Approachable and authentic, Denise teaches how to succeed in life and how to manage money from a personal perspective that kids relate to. Students leave with actionable advice to survive some of life’s sticky situations and the often-harsh real world of finance.

    Denise’s talks are powerful and inspiring. Everyone in the audience comes away knowing they are important and that they are here to do something wonderful—something that will make a difference in their own life and the lives of others. Denise places high value on helping and being helped, and that we get more done by working together.

    Educators and students praise Denise for her ability to be a genuine role model, to demonstrate how to turn a negative into a positive, to have people laughing one minute and deeply reflecting the next, and to deliver an eye-opening message that resonates.
