Personal Development

Who am I…?

I’m the managing director of Jules Verne, with over 20 years of experience in senior leadership roles within the travel industry. I’m also a qualified NLP Practitioner and a certified One of many™ coach. I have a huge passion for people development, and I believe that being human in the workplace is not a weakness, but a strength. When it comes to personal development, I’m more than just a coach. I’m a mentor, an ally and a cheerleader who will support you, challenge you, inspire you, and celebrate with you every step of the way.

What is the purpose of personal development…?


Personal development is not a magic formula that can solve all your problems, but it can help you create positive change in your life. Personal development is not something that happens to you, but something that you make happen, and it’s not a destination, it’s a journey. It’s all about becoming the best version of yourself.

But personal development is also about being human. Being human means accepting your flaws and limitations, as well as your strengths and potentials. It means making mistakes and learning from them, as well as celebrating your successes and achievements. It means being vulnerable and courageous, as well as being confident and resilient. It means being yourself and being authentic. Being human means being the magic that you are.

Who is it for…?


Personal development is not only a personal journey, but also a social one. It is not only about improving yourself, but also about connecting with others. It’s about coming together with people who share your interests, values, and goals. It’s about joining a community of like-minded individuals who can inspire you, motivate you, and challenge you. It’s about learning from each other, collaborating with each other, and supporting each other.

Personal development is about creating a sense of belonging and meaning in your life. It’s about finding your tribe and your purpose, making a positive impact in the world and in the lives of others.

How will we deliver the sessions…?


The sessions will be divided into two types: open sessions and exclusive sessions. The open sessions will be online and open to anyone in the industry who is interested in personal development. The exclusive sessions are a special benefit for AWTE members only and offer a unique opportunity to go deeper into your personal journey and receive more personalised support from Debbie. These sessions will be held in small groups of up to 12 people, either online or in person, depending on the availability and preference of the participants. The sessions are a great way to connect and collaborate with other like-minded people but remember that they are only accessible to AWTE members. Keep an eye out on our events area to find out more.


If you are not a member yet, you can join us here and enjoy this and other benefits too.

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
