She understands how to connect with adult learners, is flexible to answer questions, and met our programming needs. I highly recommend Deborah as a trainer and facilitator!”
–Melissa Gombar, Organizational Effectiveness Specialist“Deborah was wonderful to work with! She met with our team to get a sense of what we wanted for our employee training and tailored her presentation to match our needs. Her warm personality and knowledge of diversity, inclusivity, microaggression and cultural biases resonated with our over 200 employees. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her on these issues.”

“Deborah is an excellent instructor and provided thought provoking facts along with interactive case studies and discussion to help us uncover our unconscious bias and help us look at how we can increase diversity in our lives both personally and professionally.”

“The session that Deborah agreed to facilitate for our program was “Building A Culture of Collaboration Through Self-Assessment and Team Development.” I was impressed to see that within minutes Deborah had the full attention of the entire room. Deborah’s curriculum included dozens of “real life” examples that served to stimulate critical discussion and feedback from the students. She also included interactive activities that allowed the students to work in groups and even have fun. I would highly recommend her to any of my colleagues.”
