Full biography of Debra Corey

Prior to joining Reward Gateway, Debra’s career over the last 20+ years has been varied, exciting and rewarding, working for global companies such as Gap Inc., Honeywell, Quintiles and Merlin Entertainment. Prior to Reward Gateway, she was Global Reward Director at Page Group.

In 2019, Debra founded her own HR company as Chief Pay It Forward Officer. She is also a member of Forbes Human Resources Council.

Over the course of her career, she has been quietly fuelling the employee engagement revolution through a variety of ways, including teaching professional courses, speaking at events around the world, coaching and writing.

An accomplished author, Debra’s published two books, the first one about employee communication strategy and best practice – Effective HR Communication: A Framework for Communicating HR Programs with Impact and the second one which she co-wrote with Glenn Elliott, which talks about why and how to be an engagement rebel – Build it: A Rebel Playbook for World-Class Employee Engagement.

Her latest book, Bringing Your Values Out to Play was published on December 2019. The book sees values from soup to nuts and dares to question current ways of thinking and acting. Packed full of tips, tools and case studies from leading organizations such as Atlassian, Deloitte, LEGO Group, Purina, Virgin Atlantic, WD-40 Group and Zappos, this book will help you create and bring your values out to play in a more strategic and effective way time and time again.

Debra was a fantastic presenter, it's not often that you find speakers who can educate, excite, and entertain all at once. Debra did all three in the best possible ways, engaging our audience with strong visual slides and provocative content. Not only did Debra exceed my expectations as an event organizer, the post-event survey showed that she wowed our attendees as one of the top presenters of the night. If you're looking for a great speaker who will inspire and inform your audience, I highly recommend Debra!'

'Debra has the ability to capture the attention of a room and hold it like no speaker I have seen. Her fun, yet hard hitting approach makes all attendees excited to learn something new, which Debra helps accomplish in every session. She is an expert, a dynamic speaker and a person that knows how to make people smile and think. I highly recommend her.'
