  • Dear Debbie, I want to tell you again, your workshop “Be Recognized and Indispensable – Be A Game Changer” truly made a difference for me.  You were articulate, very clear and gave an inspiring “call” to “up my game” and I am now thinking in new ways of functioning and managing myself.

  • …thank you for the excellent and useful information on strategies for mastering your executive’s calendar.  I have been an Executive Assistant to the President and CEO of our organization for 10 years have found myself overwhelmed and defeated when I look back at the end of the day consumed by the calendar.  Thanks to your workshop I am encouraged to take measurable and realistic steps to gaining a better sense of control over my day and my executive’s calendar!

  • Thank you for developing the workshop Building Great Business Relationships!  I loved the exercises you designed. So many of your topics were different from the “usual” for business relationship-building courses.  The insights you shared on presence, quieting the mind, turning conversations to neutral or positive and the DFAA formula were all fresh and fascinating topics.  Perfectly suited to the Administrative Professional’s unique set of challenges.

  • Just wanted to get in touch and thank you. You were truly wonderful and your ability to present important information and “life in the day of an Administrative Professional” type lessons in such an engaging manner were amazing!  What you had to say inspired and impacted each and every one of us in some very important and meaningful ways and I was fortunate to have been there to hear you speak!
