Deborah is an amazing speaker. She has the perfect way of saying what needs to be said, and making it stick.

Jessica Donovan

Electrical Systems Engineer, PSEG Nuclear LLC

When I first heard Deborah speak, I thought to myself, ‘I wish I could captivate an audience’s attention like her with my presentations.’ Deborah brought charisma, energy and passion to her presentation. After hearing Deborah’s tips, every member of the audience felt informed & educated. When I brought her in to speak to the North American Young Generation in Nuclear chapter for PSEG, Deborah did it again. The group left empowered and prepared to give their next presentation. Everyone was pumped. I look forward to using Deborah again and again, and I would recommend her to any group looking for a dynamic speaker who delivers results.
