Checklist 1. Debra Benton’s Room Set‐Up and Audio Checklist Room Set‐Up:

We are flexible and will work with whatever the facility and the number of people dictates. If the audience size and/or scale of the room does not allow Debra’s face and movements to be clearly seen in the back of the room we request a screen that projects her image when presenting. Skimping here can sabotage the best speech.

  • Please provide a table at the back of the room so Debra can autograph copies of her book if being made available.


  • If a podium is being used for introductions, set it back a few feet from the front of the stage, if possible, so that Debra can walk in front of it.
  • A small table and two chairs should be accessible on the stage for use during audience participation.


  • Debra purposefully moves around during her speech to engage all the audience so if the room has spotlights aim them toward the very front of the stage.

Audio Visual:

  • Wireless, battery ‐ powered clip‐on microphone.


  • A/V recording is encouraged. If you’re interested in recording Debra Benton’s presentation please contact Mary Reed in advance at (800) 416‐7554

Debra A BentonA Note From Debra

The privilege I have is beyond belief. My clients are "happy campers" who have typically just come off another great year. They have a good working life and their friends envy them. They also believe that a day without learning and growing is a missed day.

They seek executive coaching because while caught up in their daily life running their organizations, they know their own future can't wait for the future. They want intriguing ideas, useful approaches, and tangible steps now to do things differently for both themselves and their organizations.

For forty years I've been a paid observer of the behavior and decisions of business leaders my clients look up to. First-hand learning from successful leaders' experiences has trained me to have a perspective very few have from exposure few have had. In a short time, I can give insight into the part of your own life that you cannot yet see.
With objectivity and careful intervention I give clear, direct, pragmatic advice to handle anything in the best possible way to drive the best possible outcome. Clients say that I "think about things others don't think about — and in a way that others don't."

Put simply, what I do for a living is bring awareness, then adjustment — because even a small mid-course correction changes everything.
When we work together, even the best leaders get better.
— Debra
