About.

I’m energized when working with my clients to identify gaps and co-create sustainable, profitable, oxygen-giving solutions that deliver quality outcomes and propel everyone forward.

DK Stewart Consulting launched in 2009 – born from my intrinsic desire to help others, my passion for the human side of business and fuelled by over 20 years of experience working with some of the most inspiring organizations, leadership teams and individuals including; Cineplex, Universal Studios Hollywood, Grill Concepts, Health Net of California, GinaGomez.com and Port Hope Northumberland Community Health Center.

My work in the fields of human resources, hospitality, entertainment, healthcare, sales and start-ups has required innovation and superior troubleshooting skills. I am a champion of strategic business and human resource solutions, conflict resolution, and performance management with the ability to build positive, productive work environments in both union and non-union settings. I bring proven expertise in organization design & development, relationship management, culture building, process improvement and customer service excellence. I look at things objectively and with a compassionate eye because I genuinely care about the people I work with and any success I’ve enjoyed has come from striking a balance of kindness, compassion, strength and intellect. Only then can you become adept at getting the best outcome for everyone involved.

“The Community Health Centres of Northumberland has contracted with DKStewart Consulting on several projects, most recently an Organizational Development and Strategic Planning process. Darlene Stewart is an energetic and engaging presenter who successfully held the interest of more than 40 employees throughout an intensive one day workshop. The planning and background work that went into the day was seamless and the end result produced exactly what we needed. We would definitely recommend DKStewart Consulting for organizational and leadership development to other organizations seeking a facilitator who encourages full participation and enthusiasm.”
