Deborah is a dynamic speaker known for her energy and story-telling. She engages her audience with though-provoking concepts and ideas and challenges them to consider new ways of thinking. Her programming is always interactive.

“All of the work I do as a Coach Facilitator is interactive, I don’t lecture, teach or preach, or pretend to be an expert, my roll is to help you be creative and have fun while you do the heavy lifting so that it’s done your way and in your style” Deborah explains.

The speaker series and workshops are all customized to suit the clients needs and can include team building, design-thinking, designing your life workshops and the coach approach training.
