"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 three books that I am immensely proud of - '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.



Bringing Your Values Out to Play

This playbook shares how to discover, develop and embed company values, one of your most strategic but often under utilized business tools. Packed full of tips, tools and case studies, this book is a game-changer in using values strategically and effectively.


You'll learn how to bring your values "out to play" by embedding them into everything you do, from recruiting to performance management, inspired by stories from leading companies such as Banco Santander, Deloitte, LEGO Group, Purina, WD-40, Zoom, and many more.

If you'd like a copy of the free eBook which contains 24 new plays added during COVID-19, you can download it here.
