Do you host Women’s Conferences?
Check out these fierce female-focused topics!


Empowering Your L.I.O.N.E.S.S. Pride

Identifying and supporting your champions… aka Lionesses.


One thing that holds so many women back is the focus on and wreckage created when a woman doesn’t support another woman. I believe we need to overcome this before we can move confidently into our visions and voices. This keynote talk is written for a women-centric event and shares how to start focusing on what matters, ditching the senseless hustle and waste of time of trying to get everyone on your side, and living your life out loud and on purpose with your lioness pride.



Releasing Imposter Syndrome

Do you have a fierce focus and desire to do a great job, keep your many roles straight, and exceed the lofty goals you set for yourselves? If you are shouting YES – you are also likely thinking that everything you do is still not enough.


No matter how much we accomplish we still feel like we’re falling short and that we’re not “enough” in some way.


Debra will guide us through fierce steps to empower the mighty voice in our head to work for us and help us release impostor syndrome, replace the desire to compare ourselves to others with collaboration, and give ourselves grace along the way.

Are you ready to embrace the Confidence of a Lioness?  She dares you.
