Over the years, Deb’s passion has been to assist boards in realizing their potential by travelling around the country mentoring, teaching and facilitating numerous workshops on the subject.
Deb has studied board governance for over fifteen years, primarily through The Governance Group, based in Vancouver. She 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 fifteen 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 governance workshops, including a streamlined strategic planning process, that are highly effective, engaging and inspiring.
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.
