What do workshop participants say about your workshops?
Deb - Thank you so much for an incredible session! It really resonated with the [leadership] team and was an incredibly helpful way to launch our retreat.
Deb, thank you for your inspiring session this afternoon. Not only for the content, but your thoughtful and open approach to the session was refreshing. I feel invigorated to dive into my personal action plan and am looking forward to sharing out some techniques with my team. Can’t thank you enough!”
...Mental wellness in a work environment needs to start with leadership. Acknowledging and recognizing the problem is the first step. Applying new skills will be [critical] as we begin change."

I really enjoyed the workshop on Setting Boundaries. I left with a stronger sense of where I want the boundaries in my life to be as well as decision-making and communication strategies to support those boundaries. The presenters were knowledgeable, professional and relatable."
-S.F., Newton Mothers Forum
Deb did a great job getting everyone to come out of their shell and share a bit about their own experiences. While we learned a great deal from her, she also helped us learn more from each other. I think all of us left the room feeling more in tune with our own values and goals, as well as more empowered to network and build new relationships."
-E.S., Core Member of AstraZeneca’s Network of Women
I loved the three-tiered approach of grounding in our bodies, grounding in our most important values (the foundation of our "Yeses" and "Nos"), and following a simple forumula for structuring potentially uncomfortable conversations with those with whom we need to set boundaries and thoughtfully speak our truth. Great teamwork!"
-K.C, Workshop Participant
I recently attended the Boundaries workshop with a bit of trepidation not knowing exactly what to expect and feeling a bit out of my comfort zone. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised, finding it an informative, practical and safe environment to gather the tool set and support I need to successfully navigate the boundary setting process. I would highly recommend this workshop."
-C.K., Workshop Participant
I thought it was a great program with a great group of people. I am so glad that I went. It was good to think about what you say No to and get some clarity about that and how that works with your boundaries."
-R.D.B., Workshop Participant
As a group speaker, Deb creates a relaxed environment that allows people to be honest with themselves and others. She helped us remind ourselves of our positive qualities, what's important to us, what's missing, and how to get it back or find it for the first time. She inspired us to start a journey and gave us specific steps to take to get there. She's thoughtful, motivational, and a joy to spend time with. Thanks, Deb!"
-A.S., Workshop participant
Deb presented the topic of “Boost Your Professional Presence: The Art of Being Confident” at de la Femme. Her talk touched on a subject that many women, and even some men, find important in their professional growth, as evidenced by the high turnout (over 130 attendees!). Deb taught us techniques to tap into both our thoughts and body so that we can boost our confidence in ourselves – everything from the “power pose” to “phrases to avoid.” Deb was very engaging and encouraged the attendees to chat with each other about their experiences in job interviews, presentations, speaking up at meetings, etc. By the end of the evening, I could tell by the buzz of conversations that everyone came out of the meeting feeling more empowered and exuberant. The event was a hit. Not only was it fun, but we also came away with concrete tools that we can practice, and that will help with our career development."
