Geoawesomeness is delighted to announce Denise McKenzie, Community & Ethics partner at PLACE joins us as an expert on the panel for the 2023 Top 100 Geospatial Companies.

Denise McKenzie is a strategic advisor, partnership builder and presenter with over 20 years of experience with the global geospatial community. She works internationally to evangelize the benefits, value and application of location data across government, the private sector and academia and her experience covers a broad range of domains including smart cities & IoT, agriculture, defense, sustainability, insurance, development and data ethics. This diversity ensures that she works where geospatial meets mainstream technology.

She co-directed the Benchmark Initiative operating through Ordnance Survey’s Geovation accelerator, exploring the ethical use of location data, and it is through this role that she became co-author of the Locus Charter. In the broader geospatial community, she is the Chair-Emeritus of the board of directors for the Association for Geographic Information (AGI) in the UK and remains on council as the Lead for Ethics. Denise is also a member of the Global Advisory Board for the Location Based Marketing Association, and a steering committee member for Women in Geospatial+ leading their partnership program.

Previously, she has worked with the Victorian State Government in Australia on geospatial innovation projects and as the Head of Outreach and Communication at the Open Geospatial Consortium where she led work such as the UN-GGIM Geospatial Standards Guides and strategic partnership engagement.

Denise holds a BA in Public Policy and Politics from Monash University in Australia and a Masters in Sustainability with the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom.
