Doris Bentley

Doris understands the evolution of small to mid-market businesses and the people challenges inherent in any growing venture.  For over twenty years, through the founding and growth of Centrepoint, she has consulted and advised leaders of owner-managed businesses, non-profit and government organizations, as well as budding entrepreneurs in the chaos of business start-up.

She is passionate about helping leaders develop and deliver on a vision for themselves and their organizations so they can achieve their personal, professional, and business goals with clarity and confidence. By defining the work people do, assessing talent needs, reimagining recruitment strategies, or advancing leadership growth, she supports their commitment to see people thrive and business accelerate.

She works with clients to plan and scout the road ahead, engaging them in essential conversations to resolve their people issues without second guessing the decisions they make. Whether working with founders, CEO's, emerging or tenured leaders, she provides fresh perspectives and strategies to help them navigate their journey with wisdom and integrity.

Doris is an accomplished speaker, facilitator, and frequent presenter to various CEO and executive forum groups, professional associations and management teams.

As a writer and educator, she has authored many articles, blog posts, white papers, and management tool kits to advance workplace innovation and contemporary people practices. She is the author of the book Basic to Brilliant: The definitive guide to transforming your people practices, A playbook for the small to mid-size enterprise. (Available at all major online retailers.)

She holds Bachelor of Arts and Education degrees, has completed graduate work in organizational development, and holds the Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation, along with certifications in a number of psychometric assessment instruments.
