Who can help managers bring out the best in people and the business?

Hello I’m Debra.  Thank you for visiting my site.  I know that bringing someone in to help with your biggest asset, people, might seem extreme but it actually makes good sense.  Brexit means SMEs must consider now what skills they’ll need in the foreseeable future, in order to meet new and unprecedented changes in a turbulent market.

That’s where I come in.  My HR career spans more than 20 years, including 10 years as a senior manager and three Investors in People awards under my belt.  I am also an accredited coach with The Coaching Academy.  This means I have a huge amount of experience working with people in London at different levels and from diverse backgrounds and you’ll be in safe hands.

I am also a Fellow of the CIPD,  so I take my continuous professional development seriously, which means you get best practice guidance and support.   I’m also a business owner myself and a member of the Newham Chamber of Commerce, so I’m aware of the challenges facing SMEs.

My approach is friendly and professional.  And I am quietly confident of my skills and abilities, so will fit seamlessly into your teams.  I have a strong and resilient inner resolve for dealing with the toughest of situations and I’m incredibly loyal to my clients.

My mission is helping SMEs develop their managers and employees, boosting performance and productivity.  And I do this by combining logic and creativity, in a straightforward and accessible way.
