Debra Corey – keynote HR speaker and panelist, global HR leader and business author.

Debra Corey was declared HR Magazine’s Most Influential Thinker of 2021. Debra is one of the top 101 global employee engagement influencers. She has worked with businesses including clothing retailer Gap, with IT company Honeywell, with Merlin Entertainments and with the employee engagement platform, Reward Gateway. Her task: to develop and deliver ‘rebellious HR strategies that have pushed the boundaries and challenged the status quo to drive ever-greater employee engagement’.

In 2019 Debra founded her own company where her title is Chief Pay It Forward Officer, and from where she’s now inspiring and helping organisations to drive advantageous business change. Debra brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to speak on the relationship between business and people – on engagement, company culture, reward, recognition and on managing the fast-changing world of work.

Debra has now published five best-selling books. Effective HR Communication: A Framework for Communicating HR Programs with Impact dealt with employee communication strategy and best practice. Build it: A Rebel Playbook for World-Class Employee Engagement Following talks about why and how to be, like her, ‘an engagement rebel’.

Bringing Your Values Out to Play focuses on corporate values as a strategic business tool. And in Appreciate it! The Playbook for Employee Recognition Debra talks about driving appreciation through employee recognition. Debra’s latest book, published in 2022 is See It, Say It, Appreciate It.
