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 what she calls the Seven Key Elements 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.
“Deb’s training was exceptional and exceeded our expectations, especially during these tough times. Her content was inspirational, motivating and, most importantly, relatable and doable. Deb understands the different aspects and dynamic scenarios each board can have and provides examples to help participants understand each learning point. Even though the board training was held online through video conferencing, her ability to create dialogue and discussion amongst the participants is impressive and she helped create a positive learning environment to where you can have the same positive outcomes of collaboration as if you were all in the same room physically. Our directors were very impressed and look forward to having her back for another seminar.”
