Auckland City Council
“As programme manager for three major system implementation projects at Auckland City, Dennise Fox brought a wealth of experience, professionalism and a calm, determined approach that helped assure us of success on all of these projects. These successes lifted the bar for Auckland City in our approach to project management. Dennise develops very loyal project teams, which she inspires to work at high levels, and as such has achieved great results for Auckland City. All those people involved have grown enormously as a result of their involvement in the projects.More recently I have seen the success of eLGAR’s Smarter Systems project that Dennise managed and in which Auckland City actively participated. This award winning project demonstrates the value of councils working together for the people of Auckland. It was new ground for the participating councils involving not only system change but significant cultural change as well. Through the clear leadership of the eLGAR Board and Dennise with her team of consultants the project is now a showcase for local government collaboration.”

University of Auckland
“In 2008 the University of Auckland transformed the delivery of HR service through the reimplementation of PeopleSoft HR / Payroll and the creation of a new service delivery model. Destin Consulting played an integral role in this important multi-million dollar project bringing with them skills in large system implementation, process design and change management and user training. The Destin approach to this project was inclusive and collaborative which created a strong, energetic environment for the project and its stakeholders. Dennise and her team genuinely care about making organisations succeed, and approached the project with a focus on achieving the best results for the university. The project also gave a number of university staff the opportunity for professional development in key project roles, and the Destin team all worked hard to mentor and pass on their own expertise to our people.”

Pre “Super City” - Destin implemented a common system, set of processes and business rules across the libraries of five councils in the Auckland region. Recipient of two Computerword Excellence Awards, a TUANZ Innovation Award and a 3M Innovation in Libraries Award.
"Dennise and her team impressed with their 'can do' approach to any task presented to them, combined with their unfailing focus on our needs. The culture of the project team was a major highlight, with consultants and library staff working together, in one cohesive team, creating a fun, vibrant and exciting work environment."
Chris Szekely – former City Librarian, Manukau City
“We asked Destin to source a Training Manager and a Documenter to assist with our SAP implementation. They provided us with Hope and David who each brought a wealth of experience and skills in their respective areas.. Both of them fitted in seamlessly with the project team, and their efforts were of great benefit to the outcomes of the programme”
