About Me

Top 101 Employee Engagement Thought Leader, Best-Selling Author, Global Keynote Speaker, HR Consultant

Hi everyone, I'm Debra Corey and I’ve been ‘doing’ HR for over 20 years. Sometimes I’ve done it well, and other times I’ve made mistakes along the way. This has been invaluable in teaching me important and powerful lessons about how best to engage a workforce in companies of all sizes, industries, geographies and generations.


I’ve worked at global companies such as Gap Inc., Merlin Entertainments, Quintiles and Reward Gateway to name a few. These experiences have helped me fine tune my skills, and develop into the HR rebel that I am today, having the attitude and confidence to know what and how to make a difference and not being afraid to give innovation and change a go.

I’ve transitioned into what I call the ‘pay it forward’ part of career as Chief Pay it Forward Officer at DebCo HR. This is where I have the pleasure of sharing my knowledge and experience with others by consulting, speaking, leading workshops, teaching, coaching and writing. I’m absolutely loving this new chapter in my career, and I look forward to supporting you and your company however I can.
