Denise Pirrotti Hummel, J.D.Until her escapades in Italy, Denise Perrotti Hummel, J.D., had been a nationally recognized litigator and mediator in the employment law arena. She was named one of the Top Twenty Young Attorneys in the United States by the American Bar Association in 1992. One of her legal positions: a jurisdiction of Western Europe, Bermuda, Cuba and Iceland.

Why such a dramatic change? During her three-year sabbatical from American life, Denise cultivated a long-time passion that had lain dormant through much of her adult life. She started to write voraciously.

Denise Pirrotti Hummel, J.D., is the CEO and Founder of Universal Consensus. As a well-respected cross-cultural strategist, she helps clients leverage the power of culture to optimize profitability, improve communication and drive efficiency into the business process. Ms. Hummel has been appointed to The U.S. State Department Worldwide Speaker and Specialist Program, a program that allows American experts to engage with foreign audiences globally. Hummel was chosen due to the BMIA model she developed where pain-points of an organization are evaluated through a series of six comprehensive lenses and used to improve operating performance worldwide across all cultures.

Hummel has consulted at the Pentagon, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, where she conducted a presentation entitled, “Beyond Multi-Lingual: The Future of DoD” during the Obama Administration.

Ms. Hummel is an Ivy League graduate who began her career as an international attorney litigating, negotiating and arbitrating high-profile disputes. Domestically, she tried and won the first class action under the Americans with Disabilities Act, obtaining Emergency 9-11 services for over 200,000 hearing impaired New York City residents. She was named one of the Top 20 Young Attorneys in the U.S. that year by the American Bar Association. Throughout her career, Hummel has devoted decades to international concerns and to the promotion of peace on an individual and global level. She helped champion the movement known as Peace Through Tourism, mentoring and promoting the concept of global citizenry, and was a keynote speaker at the International Institute of Peace Through Tourism Global Summit in Pattaya, Thailand, where she shared the podium with dignitaries from all over the world.
