Having launched her second company, Shoal Projects Ltd. in 2002 she is now focused on building up work in the three major areas of adventures in collaboration with a sponsor, adventures for television/writing and adventure based motivational speaking. Debra works with organisations large and small (IBM, Lloyds TSB, Microsoft, Boots) to motivate and inspire their workforce.
Debra Searle is honest, open, warm, funny and friendly. She has a mental strength and determination that inspires and motivates all who meet her. When Debra's rowing partner left her alone at sea the sceptics gave her two days tops.
Debra's overwhelming positivity and 'go for it' attitude are contagious, while her modesty is endearing.

"There are good speakers, there are great speakers and then there is Debra Searle MVO MBE. I've never seen an audience so engaged, inspired and in touch with the messages that she shared."
Anthony Price, Global Head of Talent Developments at TMF Group
"We recently engaged with Debra to come and talk to our senior leadership group about collaboration, change and inspiring people.
Debra not only has a great story to tell, but she uses her experiences to support real business situations and bring alive those everyday moments faced by leaders in business.
She clearly understood our organisation in advance of her talk and within an hour had totally transformed the mindset of some of the most ‘fixed’ people in this intimate audience.
Debra uses humour, humility, alongside brutal honesty and it’s clear she’s passionate about helping others achieve their potential. Unlike many other speakers I’ve seen, Debra leaves a lasting impression on her audience; with simple changes and takeaways from people to use, immediately."
