Prior to consulting, Debbie worked for 12 years at the Arcadia Group, initially in commercial management, and then in management development where she led a central training and development team who worked in partnership with each of the brands providing them with specialist learning and development support. She was also directly responsible for the coaching and development of all Senior Executives within the organisation.

Coaching Style

Debbie has a focused, energetic, and practical edge to her coaching, helping individuals develop the awareness, confidence and motivation for change.

“Clients describe me as bringing positive energy and optimism to my work, creating an environment where they feel confidence to explore wider options, try new things and challenge themselves further than ever. They like the practical nature of sessions, my action orientation and the balance of support and challenge as they review the changes they are making.”

Special Interests

As well as executive coaching, Debbie designs and delivers programmes specifically aimed at developing and retaining talent such as;

  • ‘Seminar Series’ – a group of seminars helping individuals to successfully navigate their career. They have been designed to be thought provoking, stimulating, encourage interaction and participation.
  • ‘Returning Talent’ – a programme for women who have been out of the workplace for 3+ years.
  • ‘Talent Development Programme’ – helping individuals take more ownership for their career and drive their development

Debbie is also a parental transition coach and in addition is joint leader and supervisor (with Kate Buller) on our Professional Coach Recognition programme, which leads participants to accreditation with the Association for Coaching.
