Join us April 26th for a return engagement featuring Dr. Deborah Bright who will provide another informative and highly interactive presentation that will engage attendees in an aspect of leadership that is so essential – the ability to package a message in such a way that when it’s delivered, team members walk away with a clear understanding of where the organization is headed, and are inspired to be part of the organization’s success.

About Our Speaker:

Dr. Deborah Bright is founder and president of Bright Enterprises, Inc. Once ranked among the top ten U.S. women divers, Deb's career in platform and springboard Olympic competition ended suddenly when doctors discovered retinal tears in both eyes. Were she to continue, blindness would be the inevitable result. Deborah then used the experiences of her years in competitive diving as the foundation of her insights into the architecture underlying performance. In the years that followed, she emerged as a nationally recognized expert in the fields of stress management, communication skills, management and leadership development, and the intangible ingredients behind exceptional performance. 

Besides appearing on national television and radio, including the Phil Donahue Show, Regis and Kathie Lee, and Bloomberg Radio, Dr. Deb Bright frequently appears as the keynote speaker at national conferences and meetings of business executives sponsored by World Business Council, the Young Presidents Organization, Meeting Professionals International, CPCU, and Women Corporate Directors.

Deborah's sports background has helped her train athletes from the U.S. Tennis Association and major league baseball teams. She also works closely with the Professional Golfers' Association of America and Tournament Players Clubs, helping professional golfers to improve both their competitive focus and management skills. Off the greens, Deborah coaches executives one-on-one on how best to lead in today's rapidly changing business environment. 

Deborah Bright received her doctorate in education from Arizona State University. She has served on the faculty of New York University, and is currently a fellow at the American Institute of Stress. As a best-selling author, Deborah has published numerous books.
