From the moment I met Deborah, I was struck by her open demeanour, great sense of humour and professionalism. Deborah Gillam Harry’s exceptional communication and networking skills are at a level that most try to acquire but few are able to achieve.
Greigh Laschuk
Actor/Voice Over Actor
I am thoroughly impressed with her energy, positive outlook, connections, and solid advice. She does not simply give advice and then move on to the next client; she keeps in regular contact and is keenly interested in all facets of my journey.
Ellie Ericson
Executive Assistant
My experience of Deborah is that she is an exceptional employment coach. I found an immediate connection with her when we met. I enjoyed and benefited from her workshops and when I needed a second pair of eyes to proof my work I turned to Deborah for her meticulous eye for detail. If I needed guidance in any way or had questions, she was a solid ally for me to turn to. Deborah saw skills and abilities in me that I hadn't seen clearly about myself that were enormously empowering when I took the time to consider them. She is skilled in her ability to shine a bright light on skills you may have overlooked in yourself. She can shift the experience of an employment search from feeling stressful to empowering. I value her personable, positive, humorous, intuitive and grounded approach to her work. I would highly recommend her as a coach.
