TESTIMONIALS

I've been shaping businesses for 25 years; working with brands, corporates, agencies and entrepreneurs

My work has taken me all over the world managing global campaigns, working with new product development teams and advising multi-eight-figure businesses on growth strategies. I now bring all of this knowledge to the online space to help you build a business in absolute alignment with who you are and create a brand to reach millions. 

Daniele Phillips, Head of Sky Marketing

Deborah was a great partner to work with on deciding on our future advertising agency. the pitch process was seamless and the advice on what we should consider as part of our decision was spot on.

I would work with Deborah again as her experience was invaluable.

Philip Crampton, Director of Channel Strategy - Intermarketing agency

“I had the pleasure of working with Deborah at Intermarketing Agency where her remit was to manage and enhance the new business process, pipeline, partners and onboarding of new clients to ensure a seamless and integrated journey.

What really impressed me was how, in a short time frame, Deborah immersed herself in the business enabling her to develop improved and simplified new business processes, ensured key departments had the right tools and engaged with world-class partners to facilitate the long term global growth strategy.

With a no-nonsense, highly focused and collaborative approach, I would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah as a strategic partner.”

Garry Davies Founder; The More Agency

“I highly recommend Deborah, having known and worked with her for many years.

Her understanding and consideration of brand marketing means she’s able to hit the ground running and own that project. She implements these with pride and speed. Delivering outstanding results and happy clients.”

Adam Arnold, Creative Director and Founder - Brandality

“Deborah’s advice and help has been imperative in our growth.

She really got to grips with what I wanted to achieve and how I wanted to grow. Her experience and skills are invaluable and a business consultant I can trust.”

Alex Walton, Brand Director; Sky

“Deborah helped take us through a pitch process to find an advertising agency partner, from the minute she joined she became an integral part of the team, running the project to perfection, she kept us on track internally and worked professionally with agencies. 

Especially quick to understand our needs and therefore successfully partnered us with an agency that fir our criteria to set us up for success. A joy to work with and a recommended addition to client businesses and agencies alike.”

Neil Adams, Managing Director Powerhouse Creative

“Deborah is a very personable and highly driven professional with a wealth of experience in client services.

She's one of the few ‘suits' who is also highly creative, which allows her to translate creative briefs to production and visa versa.

She successfully launched a new fashion brand for a key client, on budget and to deadline which was a highly complex project”

“She brings in a depth of strategy you don't tend to find with her competitors”

“When I first spoke with Deborah about my brand I had no idea of the depth of work or the depth of the results I would get. When she first presented her strategy to me I cried. She'd pulled out things I hadn't even vocalised as they weren't yet clear to me, things that I stand for, things that mean a lot to me.

It takes talent to do that, and a true understanding of ‘brand'. To others looking at the update you may just see the new logo and design elements, but it's in the brand positioning and essence that the real change comes.

She bloody gets it! And she brings in a depth of strategy you don't tend to find with her competitors. It helps that she has a proven agency background and that she totally gets me.”

GEMMA WENT

Online Business Mentor + Digital Growth Strategist

“She reached into my soul and translated me into a brand.

“My brand strategy ended up in tears; happy tears. Deborah got me from day one and has somehow reached into my soul and translated me into my brand. Something I had failed to do on my own. I have been in business for 18 months and feel like I am just starting.

The brand strategy and coaching were amazing; she translated my strategy into messaging, products and programs.

I feel clear and confident, ready to scale and grow, and I already can see a return on investment.

That is priceless! I cannot recommend her highly enough!”

 

CHARLOTTE PRIDMORE

Transformation Coach

“Working with Deborah has given my business rock-solid foundations to build on,

no ifs, buts or maybes, but pure facts.”

“You know when you know you need something, but you're not sure what? Your business is doing pretty well, but there's just that thing missing? Deborah is that thing! Working through the program has given me rock-solid foundations to build on – no ifs, buts or maybes, but pure facts… what my superpower is, where I sit in the market and helped really understanding my people.

The clarity I've now got on exactly what my brand is, what I'm saying, how I'm saying it, who I'm saying it to and more importantly my ‘why' is mind-blowingly powerful! I always bang on about how ‘doing the work' isn't enough. We have to do the ‘right' work to get to where we want to be. I love how Deborah cuts through the bullshit and gets straight to what's going to make the difference.
As soon as I relaunched my brand, the results were evident and tangible. I absolutely know there's nothing I can't do and nowhere I can't go with The Instagram Queen now, and that right there is bloody exciting!”

HOLLY BARRAS

The Instagram Queen 

“This process has unearthed me and my business from a depth I didn't know was there!”

“Sitting in tears of gratitude watching my new brand and positioning come alive like magic- Deborah O'Grady you are a f**king wizard. This process has unearthed me and my business from a depth I didn't know was there!”

Thank you so much, Deborah. I adored every second of the process and I can't wait to continue growing and scaling with you by my side.”

 

SHARI TEIGMAN

Performance Mentor + Creative Strategist

“Deborah has been incredible to work with! She's a pure genius at what she does.”

“My brand really wasn't an easy one to pull together and she did it! In fact, she smashed it!

It's hands down been the best money I have spent on my business. In the first two weeks of relaunch I had four new client enquiries and 6 collaboration requests, this hasn't been the case previously.

I feel so confident in my brand and I'm attracting far better clients. I have enquiries every week from awesome women wanting to work with me. Thank you, Deborah”

ROSE RADFORD

MORE CLIENT TRANSFORMATIONS AND KIND WORDS

“All I can say is this lady is a genius of branding, she's not called The Brand Coach for nothing.
I've finally understood the importance of ME, the brand and the positioning, it's been the missing piece in my business for so long.
Having her research, dig deep, peel back the layers of me, my business & the industry I'm in, share the good, the bad and the ugly & bring my vision to life is amazing. It's been a huge eye-opener and made me look at everything very differently, as she says “you can't see the label when you're in the bottle.
She's seen strengths & new “zones of genius” in me that I've never seen in myself before & she's actually given me the proof to back it up, I'm still speechless from recent conversations I've had over it. Thank you.”
Carmel David

Online business Integrator & VA Mentor

“This is the first time in my business life that I have consumed ALL of the core content of a program.

The Power of Your Brand® is a really thorough branding course that strips everything back to basics. I loved working my way through the brand model and really understanding each segment of the brand's identity, values, vision and truth.

I feel confident about my brand, my messaging and my offering. I attribute that confidence to the work I've done with Deborah through The Power of Your Brand®. I can't wait to launch!”

Anne D Ferguson

Brand Language Specialist

“Working with Deborah has been an incredible process. She has perfectly crafted a brand strategy that encompasses everything.

I learned many valuable insights along the way from the in-depth research that Deborah provided. This research helped shape the vision of my business and define my brand.

Previously my tone of voice and brand identity wasn't attracting my target market, but after working with Deborah, I have a brand that appeals and attracts my ideal clients as well as a strategy for growth.”

Nicole Prentice

Empowerment & Transformation Coach

“Working with Deborah has been a business-changing experience – and I suspect that the long-term effects will be life-changing.

I was blown away not only by her marketplace analysis and insights, but how Deborah then coupled those with spot-on insights and observations about me to arrive at conclusions and solutions that are exciting, to say the least!

Throughout the process Deborah completely guided and supported me and made me feel confident that myself and my business were in the hands of an experienced professional.”

Rachel Forcella

Content Strategist

Working with Deborah has transformed my business.
It was fab having someone who didn't know me truly see me, and to understand who I was and how my business could help other people, the challenge was to help others see the same…and she did exactly that.
Julie Creffield

Engagement Strategist

“The Power of Your Brand® exceeded all my expectations, and has left me with a beautifully raw and real representation of who I am at my core, it feels like it has taken me to another level.

It's as if the missing cornerstone that holds everything else up is now finally in place!”

Kim Parker

Transformational Coach

“Deborah really got to grips with what I wanted to achieve and made it happen.

We explored every possibility so that I got clear on my business and understood who I needed to appeal to. I have a brand that feels true to me and know it will last as the business grows.

Deborah is extremely business minded and I felt safe in knowing she'd worked with big name brands for over 20 years. She's also very creative.

I would recommend Deborah to anyone who needs help in creating not just a brand but a business.”

Ria Ingleby

Well +

“I can highly recommend Deborah. She has a professional but friendly approach and really gets under the skin of your brand.

Having experienced her brand planning experience first hand I can say it is worth every penny. Deborah has an extremely thorough process in place and takes you on a real journey. The information she presented back to me was spot on and gave me the clarity I needed to make my brand bigger and better. I say journey as it is just that.

Deborah brings her expertise to the process but ultimately empowers business owners to drive their business forward and go after their goals.”

Ruth Charlton

Owner at A Place to Meet

“Deborah is fantastic. From the beginning of our start-up business journey to implementation, she covered all the bases from strategy, business name to execution. The Little Nessies brand is still as current and fresh now as the day we launched. Our company growth has been cemented through the time spent with Deborah in creating the vision of the perfect brand for us.

If you are looking for help with your brand – Deborah's the one.”

Lynne Hunter

Founder, Little Nessies

“Working with Deborah in the group coaching program has been a fantastic experience that has helped me achieve real results. I have finally managed to move my business forward by gaining clarity in branding and who I truly want to serve in my business.

I was most impressed with the attention received from Deborah and the personalized feedback received every week!”

Aggie Wojciechowska

CFO for Growth

“This process is brilliant; Deborah knows exactly what she is doing, the exact process she is taking you through and I was stunned by the results.

I have been trying to describe what I do simply and effectively for years and she nailed it in one session with brilliant insight.

Basically she is fantastic at what she does”

Carey Glass

Management Consultant

“I had to dig deep to step into this brand. I was shocked (in a very good way) that Deborah really understood what I was doing, what my values are, and she knew exactly where to place me.
I'm attracting a lot of attention from the brands I want to be associated with, increased my IG followers by 10k to over 30K and the money has started flooding in.
I'm finally showing up as a true brand. “
Sally Worts

Sally Does Sassy

“Deborah is the spirit guide of business; it's like she has magical powers when it comes to identifying the perfect messaging for your brand.

Not only does it feel completely aligned with you, but it also attracts your dream-boat clients too!

I was struggling to create content for my audience because I wasn’t 100% clear on my brand messaging. Deborah has tapped into my zone of genius and created a brand strategy that has blown me away.

If you seek clarity, you absolutely need THE Brand Coach™!”

Rebecca Thatcher

Facebook Ad Strategist & Coach

“Where have you been all my life Deborah?

You have a gift; I've never achieved so much in such a short period of time.
I knew my vision, but my brand wasn't aligned. You made me see it, feel it and breathe it.
I am eternally grateful for you! World get ready!”
Abby Wilkes

Soul Photographer

“Working with Deborah is an amazing and rewarding experience. She is kind, knowledgeable, and generous with her expertise. She led me in a process of self-reflection and discovery that resulted in a brand that feels true to me and my work. I am empowered and excited about my business and since working with Deborah I have clarity in my values, message, and how to express myself.

My brand feels like a part of me rather something separate.”

Elizabeth Brass

Iyengar Yoga Teacher + Yoga Therapist

“Integrity, experience, excitement and passion. These are some of the words that come to mind when I think of Deborah.

I hired Deborah as a coach at the beginning of this year after hearing her speak at an event.

She helped crystallise my vision for my new business.

Her insight and knowledge are fantastic, and she's enjoyable to work with.

She's created a strategy for me, brand identity, website and helped bring my brand shoot to life. I handed my notice in and launched my brand that very month, picking up two dream clients and a contract within weeks.

I have no doubt building my brand has led me to the success I am seeing in my business.”

Nicole Higgins

The Buyer & Retail Coach

The program has provided me with greater clarity, confidence and ambition for my business.
I really enjoyed being with a group of like-minded and supportive entrepreneurs on the journey of developing their brands. Deborah had great passion, knowledge and insights.
I found the group momentum and accountability invaluable in helping drive my progress when things got challenging.
Paul Piccirillo

Business Coach

“Deborah is super talented and extremely professional.

The brand process was a wonderful experience that made me dig deep into my soul to find out who I am and what I can offer the world.

I’m SO happy with the end result and with my new logo. I feel a lot more confident too now which will help me take my business to the next level.

The last 6 weeks have felt very positive for me and I feel grateful that I was able to work with such a great lady, that I trusted completely.

Thank you, Deborah, you are an inspiration.”

Mandy Laing

Acupuncturist

“Deborah was amazing throughout this Program. She honestly cares about you getting results and there's no danger of you fading into the background but prepare to work hard!

This is exactly what I needed – someone to say – no, go away and think about it again – that's when lightbulbs went on, corners were turned and pennies dropped with massive huge clangs. She really is the brand expert – if you're a fledgeling brand, do her program, you really won't regret it!”

Amy Goodall

FOUNDER, I should be & Mad About The Brand

I have got so much out of the program!
The strategy, the positioning… It is spot on and has given me such a great feeling about my business.
You are amazing at what you do. Thank you!”
Rachel Aiken

The Minimalist Business Coach

“You have no idea how powerful your coaching has been.

When I contacted Deborah, I had a vision and a frenzy of passionate ideas!

What I didn't have was a plan, a concrete product and any clue how I was going to take it to market.

The most hilarious thing of all is that I contacted Deborah for a logo, which is kind of like asking a personal trainer for ‘the perfect body' without doing any training, work on nutrition, lifestyle or mindset!!!!!!!

I quickly understood that the logo is simply the end product of figuring out who you are, what you're selling, what you believe in, who's going to buy it and how you're going to do that.

Deborah is a true professional with high integrity, and she'll take the time to get to know you and your business before putting anything on paper.

On top of that, she'll do some awesome market research to get you positioned in the right place to be successful.

Basically, she's a rock star!”

Jennie Delreeve

Passive Income for Parents Coach

“I’ve loved it and am so grateful that I’ve got the outcome I wanted. Confidence and clarity. Can’t thank you enough.

 
Everything’s becoming more aligned. website visual, copy and the messages I deliver. It’s come from confidence.
 
I hadn’t realised how much confidence this program would give me. Before it, I’d spend ages considering what to write, what to post, who to talk to and now I’m so much clearer and confident. There’s lots of work involved but it’s necessary work to evolve. From a caterpillar to a butterfly – ready to fly!”
Jo Bradley

Founder of Learnful

Working with Deborah is by far the best decision I've ever made!

Deborah absolutely worked her magic; this woman is incredible! I now have the most amazing branding that reflects me as a person and my personality and just screams, Wow! I absolutely love it! The confidence Deborah has given me, and the clarity I now have is priceless! I feel like a brand new person! Deborah is the most amazing person to work with; she's professional, honest, supportive, and so so helpful!”

Robyn Wilson

Brand & Lifestyle Photographer

“There isn't much that Deborah doesn't know about the world of branding, with her significant expertise and experience gained working with big corporate clients and running her own agency. The fact that she is now focussing and dedicating this expertise to helping women in business is a precious gift.

I love how she “sees” the potential and the possibility for her clients and encourages us to dream bigger and create a brand which supports growth and sustainability. The world needs more powerful women with branding that helps their businesses to stand out and help people for all the right reasons, and Deborah shines a light by being that woman herself too. She really cares about her clients, and this is beautiful to see.

It has helped me to think more broadly about who I am, what I stand for and where I want my business to be.”

Rachel Flower

Leadership Coach

Deborah has a super skill; she has seen me at a deeper and more profound level than many people have.
Deborah has engineered a process through which I have come home to myself with a full understanding of what I offer and the transformation I bring to my clients.
I know absolutely who I am and how I help and I am so excited to step into this completely grounded and resolved way of being.
I have achieved more in my business whilst working with Deborah than I have all year.
Lucy Power

Success & Leadership Coach

“I am LOVING my bold new look.

 
“Love it. Different from your usual thing, but edgier. Like you.”
“80’s badass goddess vibes.”
“OMG I F**KING LOVE IT! It’s so dynamic and so you!!!!”
“So bold – like its owner!”
 
These are some of the first responses I got when I shared a sneak peek of my new branding and I COULD NOT AGREE MORE. I’m beyond excited that today I get to actually show the world the next phase of my business and how it’s evolving so powerfully. Thanks to Deborah and the team. I LOVE IT!”
Daire Paddy

Brain+Biz Coach

“As I was just starting out, I had no idea where to begin creating a brand. The initial consultation was time-consuming, but it's so true that spending time and money to get things right from the start is what really matters. I now have a brand that is a true reflection of me, and so many people reiterate that when I tell them about The Food Boss. I couldn't have asked for anyone else to share this great experience with, and it will firmly remain in my business history as the very starting point!”

Kate Law

The Food Boss

“My very first impression of Deborah was that she was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the power of branding done the right way and that there would be no fluff and no sugar-coating, which is just want I needed”

Anna Iveson

Copywriter & Story-led Marketer

“I feel much more confident in knowing who I am, who my audience are and how to speak to them.

Deborah's experience and expertise combined with her generous and supportive nature makes her one in a million – a truly rare find in the online world.

Through the Power of Your Brand® program I learnt so much about myself, my brand and my audience, it has been invaluable.”

Chelsea Green

Holistic Hormone Specialist

“Working with Deborah was not only amazing but eye-opening. Until I began working with her I hadn’t released the true depth that a brand actually conveys.

During Deborah's process, it became very clear that my old brand didn’t convey the depth of my 20 years experience and with her guidance, I realised that I actually needed to embrace my inner white witch and change my business name from my own name to White Witch Wisdom®.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Deborah for a second. In her, you will find a highly-skilled, experienced professional, who will not only draw out your true essence but will show you how to convey that essence into your branding thus attracting your ideal clients.”

Amanda Farrar

Owner, White Witch Wisdom®

“The program has given me clarity on who I'm targeting, what I'm offering, and who I am.

I've evolved throughout the program and am still doing so.
I am SUPER excited about my new business and what this year will bring – It exceeded my expectations.
Eye-opening, informative, professional, stressful, a bit mind-blowing but overall, pretty damn good!”
Petra Irving

Stress & Lifestyle Coach

“Working with Deborah via the online group coaching program has been amazing and invaluable.

 
I have become more confident with my business and how I want to communicate with my clients.
 
I have a clear strategy and goals that I know I will achieve by the end of 2020 if not before.
 
I would highly recommend working with Deborah as in the same way you have to give your money meaning for it to feel alive, you get to give meaning to your business and this radiates your ‘Why'.”
Nila Mistry

Financial Life Planner

“Deborah is an absolute BRAND NINJA.

She went beyond looking just at my product offering and how to position it in the market place. And, to be honest, that’s all I was expecting from a ‘branding’ exercise.

I was taken aback by the detail Debs went into. She took me on a journey of business and self discovery. She delved deep into my passions, core beliefs, and value systems. She deciphered my artistic scribbles and decoded my visions of grandeur and out of it distilled THE PERFECT BRAND for my startup business… I was so overwhelmed when she presented the brand model that I cried.

She absolutely NAILED IT! She is so much more than a brand consultant. She is a brilliant and intuitive business mentor. I can’t recommend her and her exploratory process enough! Just AWEsome.”

Amanda Faulkner

Founder My Mimo

“Wow, 4 hours later and you've repositioned me, found my USP, created my messaging, crafted content themes and figured out my products, services and fees.
Working through the wordbook and recording with a huge smile on my face. This is what I'm here for and I have a roadmap to get me there!”
