Her objective in the role was to accelerate the leadership capability, energy, and confidence of key players in ways that other leadership development experiences had failed to. Deb realized her expertise would also meet the needs of time-constrained professionals seeking an action-oriented approach to increased personal effectiveness and innovation.
Since then, Deb has created a client roster that includes leading organizations such as Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, Gap, AMD, GSA Public Buildings Service, Blue Pumpkin Software, and PolyFuel Inc. Her not-for-profit clients include Habitat for Humanity and Women’s Initiative for Self-Employment.
Deb holds a Bachelor’s degree from Pomona College and earned her MBA with an emphasis on corporate finance and organizational behavior from the University of Southern California. She was selected for the HP Accelerated Development Program and attended the Advanced Management Program at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Management.
She is also an accomplished speaker and workshop leader, renowned for her Creating Breakthroughs™ series of experiential learning workshops, which enable professionals from all background to apply simple, effective techniques to strategy, planning, and collaboration for maximum results.
