Are you looking for a speaker for your next event?
Debi Powell doesn’t just believe in playing the game: She believes in changing it.
Inspired by her success playing team sports through her college years, Debi has been a powerful catalyst and advocate for teamwork her entire life. Throughout her professional career, Debi’s transformative spark has helped businesses, non-profit organizations, and athletic programs maximize performance, grow their impact, and forge stronger professional bonds that drive success.
At the core of her work is a belief that working and playing well together is the key to life’s greatest triumphs and sweetest victories. That’s why she launched Breakthrough Consulting and why she champions teamwork. Debi has experienced flourishing teams, stressed out teams, average teams, disconnected teams, dysfunctional teams, and some great teams, too. From good to bad, perhaps like you, she's experienced the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.
Debi earned her Master’s in Education from the University of Kentucky. She is an Accredited Integrative Enneagram Practitioner, Certified Health and Well-being Coach, and volunteer jail chaplain. She enjoys the adventure of travel, doing sports commentary from her recliner, celebrating wins & milestones with ice cream, and being active outdoors year-round.
Known for her authenticity, leadership expertise, unabashed zest for life, and her ability to turn strangers into friends, Debi has earned the welcomed reputation for not only being a one-of-a-kind consultant, but a dynamic speaker, organizational accelerator, and trusted colleague.
This is Debi's favorite topic to talk about because she's lived it! Breakthroughs happen -- and not always in the way we think they do. This keynote is about overcoming setbacks and combines Debi's irresistible storytelling with meaningful action steps.
