“DEBx led by Deb Shapiro was a life altering experience that challenged, inspired, and ultimately transformed me. With her sharp and expert strategies, Deb helped me to develop a talk that represented my soul and, even further, helped me to develop my sense of self in a way that few programs or people can. As a result of DEBx, I know myself more clearly than ever as someone who can bravely make a contribution to the world.”
“DEBx has opened my mind and heart to what it is to be a powerful public speaker in a way I never knew was even possible. The coaching and training received throughout the program was world class.”
“I am still buzzing from the experience and from our time together. It was a huge step in my growth and development. I am deeply, deeply grateful to you and the team for the space you created for me to make a difference.”
“After the first sentence of the first speaker’s talk, I was riveted in my seat and in awe for the next 3+ hours. Sometimes, but not often, I’m in the presence of something so surprising, so profound, so elegant, that I am swept away. It’s usually music art or nature. Last night, it was DEBx! Congratulations to all of the AMAZING speakers. It was the most inspiring event I have attended…maybe ever. To say that every talk was compelling and moving would be an understatement.”
“WOW! WOW! WOW! Last night was phenomenal!! Each speaker touched me in a different way. My 13 year old daughter was inspired and moved as well!”
“I had a great time at the launch of DEBx last night. Nothing but good stuff from the platform of polished speakers. This is the beginning of something wonderful!”
“Better than TEDx!”
“This was a most extraordinary experience. I sat on the edge of my seat through the entire DEBx event, with tears of joy streaming from my eyes, watching friends of years share their talks; having discovered and developed the ability to share what has been wanting to be said, expressing the deepest part of themselves passionately, powerfully, and purely. The growth and development available from being a participant in this program is clear and DEBx is a valuable experience from both sides of the stage!”
“Thank you all for every minute of your prep work, practice and more practice. As a public speaker, it was apparent how much effort was put in to your work. It paid off as each talk was well crafted and insightful. I am so honored to be among such wonderful inspiring people. “
Deb truly has a gift! She finds the gems of your ideas and helps piece them together to make a talk that lands with impact. Working with Deb throughout the DEBx Speaker Training Program allowed me to become very clear as to what MY message is, and how I can best share it with the world. It wasn’t easy, but it was fun and absolutely WORTH IT!! I also love being in the audience and watching others share what’s important to them. It really is an amazing experience however you choose to participate!
