Deborah – Debby – Spaltmann held a successful career as a senior marketing and communications professional before becoming a leadership and executive coach. After a few turbulent years in an industry that was shaken by mergers & acquisitions, restructurings & downsizings, and a general re-invention of the entire industry, she departed the corporate world to start her own business.
She is a multiple entrepreneur, most recently as the founder of I4I (Influence4impact.com), an online community that has made its mission to help coaches build profitable and rewarding relationships with their clients – in a safe and secure online platform.
She is now using the skills she learned in those many years of being in the marketing profession, now helping coaches, instead of senior executives, to build their public reputation. She understand the importance of leaders to have an authentic leadership style and the impact these leaders have in their communities and upon their stakeholders.
Overall, Debby has 35+ years of experience in management, communications, public relations, sales training, and marketing, supporting and working in the industries of IT, Medical Technology, Telecoms, and not-for-profit NGOs – and as of 2015, in the coaching and personal development market.
Her experience of working within corporations that have a global workforce and thus, multicultural management, teams, customers and stakeholders is how she learned hands-on about the complex operations in a global company. In the 50+ different countries to which her work took her, she learned about the details behind a global business model, the people and cultures that make-up a successfully running business, and how the sum of these parts equal the hidden magic that makes a global business stay successful. She has spoken at Universities and businesses from Las Vegas to Zurich, from Berlin to New Delhi.
Her experience as working as an Executive Coach and in leadership development is focused on helping organizational leaders develop collaborative innovative management skills – those skills that contemporary businesses in the 21st century are striving to implement.
In her personal life, Debby loves spending time in nature with her husband and pets. She can be found on the weekends hiking the mountains and hills around her neighborhood.
“Debby is an incredibly skilled coach! Even more important, she’s an incredibly warm, kind & loving human!
“Debby has proved to be valuable in helping me seek clarity, she is a great listener and is a skilled coach.”
– Gary S.
“At the base of any good initiative is having a great attitude and a great human being….. This is what Debby is!
