Personal Coach and Business Facilitator
Out of the Rut
I first met Debbie Pepler of Peptalk through a BNI meeting – Debbie is a fabulous networker, and I met with Debbie to see how we may compliment our services, and where we may possibly overlap. This was nearly 3 years ago! I enrolled in a Business Growth & Development Course in May 2011 and part of it included a series of coaching sessions with a business mentor who turned out to be Debbie Pepler – I was stoked and have continued to work with Debbie on a monthly basis ever since.
Debbie cuts to the chase; she is excellent at keeping me tracking and organised and I find having Debbie to be accountable to ensures that I do as I say I will do!
Debbie is great at preparing agendas for our discussion so we keep to the point and to time; she also summarises our sessions so I can easily check on my commitments and my progress. Debbie is very familiar with social media and networking so she challenges me to expand my strong networking skills into the social media environment which I have to admit I have resisted until recently as I succumb to engaging with Linked In, albeit at an introductory level!
Debbie’s experience in both the UK and New Zealand has stepped me into engaging with coaching clients overseas, which I may well not have done without her assistance and encouragement. Having someone who is bridging both cultures and doing the same herself has made it very ‘do-able’ for me. I appreciate Debbie’s cross-cultural expertise and her experience in a number of different business sectors across a range of industries – this makes for a broad understanding of business issues and dilemmas, as well as solutions to those situations. I am very happy to recommend Debbie for keeping you on track and on purpose with a delightful humour and tenacity that will challenge even the most resilient!
