Debra is a highly experienced and award-winning HR leader, world-class speaker, three-time author, and was recently named one of the top 101 global employee engagement influencers. She’s had a varied career, working for global companies such as Gap Inc., Honeywell, Merlin Entertainments and Reward Gateway, where she’s developed and delivered HR strategies in a rebellious way, pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo to truly drive employee engagement. In 2019 Debra founded her own company as Chief Pay It Forward Officer, where she’s inspiring and helping others to bring out their inner rebel and drive business change.

Over the course of her career, Debra has been fuelling the employee engagement `rebelution’ through a variety of ways, including speaking at events and leading workshops around the world, teaching professional courses and writing. An accomplished author, Debra has published three books, the first one about employee communication strategy and best practice (“Effective HR Communication: A Framework for Communicating HR Programs with Impact”), the second one which talks about why and how to be an engagement rebel (“Build it: A Rebel Playbook for World-Class Employee Engagement”), and her latest book which focuses on company values as a strategic and effective business tool (“Bringing Your Values Out to Play”).

Debra is much in demand as an effective inspirational speaker and feedback includes:

“Debra was a fantastic presenter, it’s not often that you find speakers who can educate, excite, and entertain all at once. Debra did all three in the best possible ways, engaging our audience with strong visual slides and provocative content. Not only did Debra exceed my expectations as an event organizer, the post-event survey showed that she wowed our attendees as one of the top presenters of the night. If you’re looking for a great speaker who will inspire and inform your audience, I highly recommend Debra!”  Vadim Liberman – DisruptHR NYC Organizer

“It was a great pleasure to have Debra as a guest speaker … She is an incredibly inspiring and thoughtful individual with a great ability to engage audiences … Her practical advice was outstanding!”  Dr Stefanos Nachmias – Deputy Head – Department of HRM, Nottingham Trent University

Debra came to speak at our recent CIPD Branch event. She was very engaging and touched upon a broad range of HR subjects. It was a very inspirational speech and it definitely created new ideas within the room.  She left a lasting impression with all delegates involved and recruited more rebels.”  Sterling Hall – Vice Chair/Treasurer Worcester & Hereford CIPD Branch

“Debra has the ability to capture the attention of a room and hold it like no speaker I have seen. Her fun, yet hard hitting approach makes all attendees excited to learn something new, which Debra helps accomplish in every session. She is an expert, a dynamic speaker and a person that knows how to make people smile and think. I highly recommend her.” Jonathan Burg – Group SVP Marketing, Reward Gateway.

Debra Corey is an exceptional and engaging speaker, she’s also a leading expert in her field.  We had the pleasure of using her two times, at our Summit for UK HR Directors and as an opening keynote at the People Development Summit Dubai. Her message is relevant, inspiring and most importantly practical. There’s a clear message and excellent ‘take aways’ for the audience – tips and insights they can start to implement in their own organisation which is of huge value. I would high recommend Debra as a speaker. She’s great fun, a pleasure to work and extremely passionate.”
Georgina Kelly, Managing Director, Summit Events Ltd
