Hi I’m Debra,

I’m a businesswoman, professional adventurer and motivational speaker who is convinced that learning to choose the right attitude can transform our work lives and our personal lives.

I’m dedicated to showing people how to build resilience and leverage their mindset so that they can kick the can’t out of life. It’s not magic, it’s mindset.

I’m also passionate about Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. If that’s more your bag, please check out Mix Diversity.

Client Testimonials

“We have lost that precious ability to connect and yet you managed to have us all gripped in a virtual world.”

“Your insights have certainly inspired the team to challenge the status quo and dig deep within to achieve what feels like the impossible.”


Research shows the success of top performers can be attributed to 75% attitude traits and only 25% skillset, yet very few people take the time to develop their attitude. I show people how to tap into that 75%.

It’s Not Magic, It’s Mindset

I discovered this the hard way whilst rowing solo across the Atlantic. I created The CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE Journal to share the mindset strategies that I developed so that everyone can take the next step towards their goals.

The daily practice is a powerful combination of brain rewiring, goal visualising, gratitude awareness and action planning. Are you ready to take the next step?

“I wasn’t always this way. There was a defining moment involving me, a tiny rowing boat, a huge ocean and a near-miss with a container ship. Three little words changed my life. Choose. Your. Attitude.”
