The author of Better Than Your Behaviour, Deborah is a trusted innovator and advisor. Providing strategic guidance at the human-technology interface, she ensures that insights and investments—whether human, financial or technological—drive positive and meaningful change. 

In a world where the future is yet to be written, I believe progress hinges on our collective ability to guide innovation with compassion and accountability.

I have been described as a visionary at the forefront of responsible innovation, guiding global executives and founders in embedding ethics within tech-focused organisations. I have a background in Psychology and Business Studies, certifications in Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Technology from the University of Oxford’s Said Business School, and ESG Investing from the CFA Institute.

A trusted advisor to investment firms, entrepreneurs and industry leaders, I specialise in creating solutions that blend technology with responsibility and societal impact. I bring unique foresight coupled with deep understanding of leadership, ethics and their consequences, which enabled me to accurately identify red flags in Theranos, Greensill and OneCoin over 18 months before the scandals.

As the originator of the ‘Board Member Representing Future Generations’ concept and the author of Better Than Your Behaviour, I emphasise the crucial link between present-day decisions and future outcomes. My work spans keynotes and podcasts, providing strategic counsel and championing ethical advances across industries and economies. Based in Dubai with my husband Patrick and our dog Fraggle, I work with clients globally, those who are equally committed to advancing technology anchored in ethical responsibility and the betterment of future generations.

If you share my passion for guiding technology with compassion and accountability, I invite you to connect with me. Whether you’re interested in ethical innovation, seeking strategic advice, or exploring opportunities for collaboration, I’m here to engage in meaningful discussions and create a brighter future together.

Ways to Engage

Having an impact requires more than talk – it requires action.

I engage entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders to think and build better.

4.0

I guide boards to think differently, from navigating ESG and ethical AI to stakeholder capitalism. My advice sharpens perspectives, equipping leaders with foresight to unite growth and positive impact.

Speaking & Thought Leadership

I spark critical conversations on responsible innovation and ethical tech through keynotes, panels and podcasts. My insights propel companies and industries towards a future where human values anchor technology.

Ethical Investing & Impactful Ventures

Directing capital to where innovation and integrity align, I partner with investors to ensure their returns are matched by societal impact, fostering a future shaped by responsible progress.
