"Debra's books will educate you on what is possible, equip you with tools to make the process possible, and will inspire you as to what is possible."  Glenn Elliott, former CEO of Reward Gateway and co-author of 'Build it'

After 20+ years as an HR leader, I discovered the world of writing, and have written five books that I am immensely proud of - 'Appreciate it! The Playbook for Employee Recognition', 'See it. Say it. Appreciate it!, 'Build it: The Rebel Playbook for Employee Engagement', 'Bringing Your Values Out to Play' and "Communicating with Impact'.

My style of writing is a combination of tips, tools and storytelling, giving readers what they need to be inspired and take action. I hope you enjoy them - read more about them each below.

Appreciate it! The Playbook for Employee Recognition

This book is a call to action and call for change for anyone who is interested in creating a culture of appreciation through their recognition strategies and programs, one that doesn’t focus on the fancy trophy, expensive gifts or money, but on a feeling. 


A feeling where every employee feels appreciated, not just a few. Where recognition occurs for all of the small things that matter and make a difference, and not just the big ones. Where recognition happens continuously, and not just every year or every five years. And where your people feel valued and appreciated through genuine, meaningful and inclusive recognition.


Packed with practical tips and inspirational stories from over 50 leading companies, this book will drive change and add the exclamation point to appreciation that’s fit for your people and the future!
