"Debra's energy and expertise are a dynamite combination. The audience was blown away and left with real work examples they could draw inspiration and practical tips from. We'd recommend Debra to any event or organization that wants to improve its people experience and business performance."
Employee Engagement Conference Founder & Organizer
"Debra was a fantastic presenter, it's not often that you find speakers who can educate, excite, and entertain all at once. Debra did all three in the best possible ways, engaging our audience with strong visual slides and provocative content. Not only did Debra exceed my expectations as an event organizer, the post-event survey showed that she wowed our attendees as one of the top presenters of the night. If you're looking for a great speaker who will inspire and inform your audience, I highly recommend Debra!"
DisruptHR NYC Organizer
"It was a great pleasure to have Debra as a guest speaker in our University. She is an incredibly inspiring and thoughtful individual with a great ability to engage audiences. Students fully enjoyed the presentation as she was able to share her personal experiences and expertise in a constructive and insightful way. Her practical advice was outstanding! Students simply loved it!"
Dr Stefanos Nachmias
Deputy Head – Department of HRM, Nottingham Trent University
"Vibrant, engaging, knowledgable and capable of holding attention through humour and the right kind of drama! What more could you want in a speaker? Debra has spoken at my DisruptHR London event twice and been exceptionally well received. She’s a delight to work with and I recommend you book her to speak right now."
Founder of The Searchologist & DisruptHR London
Surprising, engaging and professional - the three attributes that I believe are most relevant for describing the way Debra connected with the audience. What should have been a classic 30 minute talk, turned into an inspiring lesson for those who attended the chapter meeting I organised for the Non-Fiction Authors Association.
Cristian A. Nico
Organizer of Non-fiction Authors Association
It was a pleasure having Debra as a speaker at our annual HR conference. She was not only knowledgeable, but made the content and presentation fun, relevant and inspiring. I highly recommend Debra as a speaker, teacher or coach.
Brynjar Már Brynjólfsson
Chairman of Mannauður, the Icelandic HR Association
Debra is such a dynamic, engaging speaker that we felt very lucky to have her on stage for our conference on the 5th December, 2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece. Her keynote presentation based on her book was rated by fully 99% of our audience members as “excellent.” The material truly resonated with our audience of HR Professionals and senior managers, many of whom are looking for expert advice on building a truly supporting culture of engagement with CEOs and business peers.
"Debra came to speak at our recent CIPD Branch event. She was very engaging and touched upon a broad range of HR subjects. It was a very inspirational speech and it definitely created new ideas within the room. She left a lasting impression with all delegates involved and recruited more rebels."
