A Better Place to Work to be released - Fall 2016
"Deborah's coaching brought my original thoughts many levels higher. She is laser-focused on her clients' specific needs.
"Singlehandedly, Deborah has brought the field of workplace health promotion to a point where it is now a mature, thriving concept and set of best practices. There is, in short, no other one person in Canada who has done more for the field.
"Her vision was what drew people to her annual events, but it was her integrity that kept them coming back.
"Deborah Connors is an iconic figure in the story of how Canadian values and practices have developed in the area of workplace health.
"I can honestly say that I appreciate just how good Deb is at zeroing in on the theme & focus for the message and then securing the keynote speakers for her event.
"Deborah is a big picture thinker - a visionary - and yet she can also focus on the details that make up the bigger picture. These two skill sets are rarely found in the same person.
"Deborah is able to hold the vision even when everyone else has gotten discouraged, and has the ability to become the living bridge for others to recapture their vision.
"Deborah is a thoughtful and articulate speaker who is supremely professional, but not so much that she shields others from seeing her vulnerability. Deborah is credible for her humanity as well as her organizational health expertise.
"Deb has a quiet strength and wisdom that inspires and motivates everyone around her. Her light shines like a beacon that helps guide us all to do and be the best we can be.
"Deb is an extremely engaging facilitator and presenter and has the ability to encourage people to participate and contribute to the discussion. Deb does this by setting up a positive environment in which people feel safe and that their contributions are valued.
