Adventurer
Debra first hit the headlines when she set out to row across the Atlantic with her husband. Unfortunately he had to be rescued so Debra, a novice rower, continued alone, rowing 3000 miles from Tenerife to Barbados. It should have taken them six weeks but, to achieve her goal, Debra ended up spending 3½ months at sea alone, encountering 30' waves, sharks, and force 8 squalls in her tiny wooden boat. Debra has gone on to undertake solo & team expeditions across the globe, including canoeing the Yukon River for a BBC documentary and racing in the Monte Carlo Rally in a 1957 Alfa Romeo. Her spirit of adventure gained her an MBE from Her Majesty the Queen.

She founded two successful companies in her 20s, more recently establishing a diversity consultancy which specializes in innovative corporate programs. Debra is a published author, newspaper feature writer and has represented Great Britain at European Championship level.

Debra loves her job as a motivational speaker and always leaves her audience in no doubt of their own ability to achieve the extraordinary.
