About Us

Denise Archie and her son Marcus Archie are recognised as experts in their field of mother/son relationships, living, loving and laughing together and are a passionate 'cheer squad' for the people who join them on their learning journey. Together as entrepreneurs, educators, facilitators and coaches they have built and now run several businesses in Australia and the United States. They advocate for the empowerment of young people and provide the strategies and skills through their 'Art of Kitchen Table ConversationsTM'. They recognise and acknowledge that the 'Art of Kitchen Table ConversationsTM' is truly an art that is slowly dying. Never before in the history of the world of work has the younger generation been the teacher of the older generation. No longer does the 'master' and 'apprentice' model work either at home or in the workplace. Kids are leaving their parents behind. How do we as parents not only catch up how do we keep up with the changes in the family structure and the workplace. Technology is coming so fast and children are growing up so fast with exposure to concepts and new language that parents are really struggling.

Denise has a background in education as a classroom teacher for 15 years of both primary and high schools she was published in Certificate l in Work Education and her school to work transition model for 'kids at risk' operated successfully across three states for 9 years as was the forerunner to school based traineeships. Denise has worked with youth in her community for over 20 years voluntarily conducting leadership development programs at numerous youth camps in Queensland, NSW and Victoria.

Denise has founded and built several business including being one of the first in online learning and she is a recognised leader and one of Australia's experts in her field of learning and development in innovation. She has been a recipient of the 'Commitment to Training' award from the Construction Industry. This was for the concept of workplace trainers and assessors. Over the last 20 years Denise has worked successfully with over 30,000 people in workshops across Australia and New Zealand in many blue chip companies and as a professional coach creating powerful transformational results. Where people state they have the experience of 'Mapping my life for change!'
Denise holds a DipEd, Dip Teac, Post Grad in Education and Career Counselling, and her own learning journey took her on a discovery of NLP. She also holds a Master in NLP, timeline Therapy, DiSC and SDI accreditation and their own attitudinal profiling tool 'The Gen Cove IndexTM' which Marcus and Denise developed when building their first business together, The Gen Team.

Marcus Archie began his career in education as a High School Teacher. He has a passion for learning which is why he went into education. As a former professional soccer coach, he believes the greatest success can be found in operating as a team. The family is the first team we are apart of, where people learn how to communicate, resolve conflict and develop a sense of self that impacts us for the rest of our lives. The question is, how can we ensure of family life is an enjoyable place where each family member supports and ensourages each other to develop and live up to their potential?
How do we ensure everyday, to wake up with a sense of joy knowing everyone is going to have fun, and, more mportantly, coming home with a smile?

Denise and Marcus have officially joined forces and have developed two successful companies. One is Bringing Up Your Parents - A parent's guide to Living with and Loving Teenagers and the other is The Gen Team. The Gen Team focuses on the workplace. This is the age where never before has the younger generation been the teacher of the older generation. Denise and Marcus are now recognised as experts in the field of mother/son relationships and working with different generations. What works and what are still the 'areas for practise'.
