Why Your Communication Matters?

We provide the opportunity to use your scenarios to enhance and validate your current communication skills on three levels: your mindset (the thinking behind your actions), motivation (the ‘why’ behind your actions) and mechanics (communication techniques or ‘how to’ steps). This three component approach is explored by Debbie Matters in If I Ran This Place… Communication for Results - bestselling business book as published in The Globe and Mail.

Debbie is a Certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner, graduate of the Advanced Facilitation program at Facilitation First and proud member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers. As a former teacher, recruiter, marketing manager in the financial industry and education liaison in the pharmaceutical industry, Debbie is versatile and adaptable to varied cultures, dynamics and challenges.

Debbie has completed numerous marathons including the Boston Marathon and triathlons including Ironman Canada. She has the determination, passion and conviction for getting the job done right while optimizing the experience and development of participants.

As President of Canada’s Largest Executive Networking Group, I’m pleased to offer the following recommendation for Debbie Matters, “Debbie’s engaging style accompanied with her ability to customize information to meet the needs of the group is a pleasure to watch. She really does focus on getting results and respect.”

I enjoyed Debbie’s informative and thought-provoking presentation. I was impressed with her warm and friendly disposition both one-on-one and when engaging the entire group. I love the simplicity of her approach of ‘thinking like a salesperson’ when identifying and understanding client needs. It is something that I can start to apply immediately.”
