Testimonial: “Debbie has provided me with invaluable advice over many years. She has an uncanny ability to relax individuals, allowing engagement free from the prejudices that constrain corporate existence. Debbie’s preparation is meticulous, ensuring practical simplicity in her business proposals. She is crafty, allowing her audience to ‘stumble upon’ solutions themselves; it appears that way, anyway! Debbie is comfortable in a crowd, good fun to be with, and ultimately delivers exceptional value by even the most prudent accounting standards”. Ludwig Krause, CFO, QIB
