Dena Thompson

Dena produces award-winning commercials for some of the world’s most recognized brands. But more than a producer, Dena is a professional miracle worker.

She helped Tropicana bring a sunrise to the Canadian Artic during its 2 months of endless night. She helped the Canadian Ministry of Health use flatulence to deliver national anti-smoking messages to Canada’s youth. And when the creatives working on Cadbury told her they needed to erect a giant donkey piñata the size of a bus, she made it happen. 

Creatives adore her passion. Clients trust her wisdom. Agencies find her indispensable. But all can agree on one thing. She really isn’t so angry after all.
