rapidly scale and win.

I needed somewhat of a shock, from somebody I really trusted…now we have a way of articulating our promise, and our value to customers, in a way that makes the competition irrelevant...as soon as we say it. Every time we get to articulate it to a prospective customer, it feels amazing, because it’s like we get our own drop the mic moment.

— Tim Hamilton, CEO Praxent

Deb is my go-to branding and marketing guru. I’ve booked her for events and classes of such a wide range and am never disappointed by the strength of content and engaging exercises she’s brought to each one. Her speaking style can’t be described as anything less than captivating.

— Candice Digby, Speaker Organizer, General Assembly

Deb helped us identify our ideal customer persona with the right voice in our messaging...which massively increased our efficiency in sales and revenue and product development. We spend less time talking to bad potential customers because they’re not as attracted to our message.

— Adam Lieb, CEO Innervate
