I had every confidence in her expertise on this subject and she was able to hand out a lot of invaluable advice to delegates at the meeting. It’s an area that every business person should take seriously and I would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah as an expert in her field.”
Michelle Hodgson, Key Words
After a very busy period of work at the PIC group I wanted to give the team in the office a treat as a thank you for their efforts so decided to ask Deborah to come in and talk to them. The workshop lasted a couple of hours and everyone really enjoyed the experience and were really taken by how knowledgeable Deborah was. For the first time for many of them they had chance to discuss how to bring out the best in themselves and make a good first impression. I immediately noticed a difference in how they presented themselves for work and they all talked about the workshop for days after. For me the time with Deborah had a very positive effect on staff morale as well as improving the image of the company to visitors.
