Without strategic goals, an organization only exists. With solid goals in place, both the board and staff soar to new heights and begin to make a difference in their industry and their community.
My process is simple and effective. We work together as a team to identify where you
want to be and then how you will get there.
This process includes strategic planning with the board and tactical planning with staff and/or committees.
Over the years, Deb’s passion has been to assist boards in realizing their potential by travelling around the country teaching numerous workshops on the subject.
Deb has served on many boards, including national and provincial boards, for over thirty-five years. She also worked as Executive Director at the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce for nineteen years, supporting her board of directors as they transitioned to a solid governance model. Within all these experiences, she came to realize that governance, when done right, could be fun and easy. That is why she has developed templates, examples and exercises for boards to follow so that they can easily adopt the various aspects of good governance!
Deb has been recognized as Executive of the Year and Chamber of the Year by her provincial network and Executive of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada. Most recently, she was appointed to the Council of Excellence by a panel of her peers across the country and appointed as Fellow of the BC Chamber of Commerce.
"A former board member asked what our meeting was about today and when I told her it was about Board Governance, she commented that it must have been boring then. I told her on the contrary! It was fun and exciting! Thank you for making it so fun and interesting."
