Meet Deborah Grayson Riegel
Everyone wants the opportunity to be heard and understood; to have the words and know how to deliver them when the pressure is on. I love that I get to help people realize they’re capable of doing this—regardless of their starting point and current comfort level communicating.
Communication is key to success, both personally and professionally. I work with individuals and teams around the world to help leaders at every level share their message more effectively and become better speakers and managers. I’ve worked with people across all sizes of organizations, from newly promoted middle managers to C-level leaders of Fortune-50 companies. I also teach Management Communication at the Wharton School of The University of Pennsylvania, and Executive Communications at the Beijing International MBA Program at Peking University, China.
My approach combines evidenced-based concepts with my decades of experience to deliver significant value. I employ proven techniques from behavioral and social psychology, public speaking, and coaching. Additionally, I believe professionals learn, retain, and share more when they’re engaged; so, I focus on making all of my programming enjoyable, as well as informative.
I hold a degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan and a Masters in Social Work from Columbia University. I’m a graduate of Coach U and Coaches Training Institute, and a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation.
I live in New York with my husband Michael, my twins Jacob and Sophie, and my rescue dog Nash, who knows I will always sneak her a treat when nobody is looking.
