Our Global Website


I had the chance to meet Debbie on 2 occasions this year 2017 while attending the TLC workshop and the TLC Facilitator training both presented by her. I consider myself quite lucky that I ended up with her and ‘business en motion’ because of the high level of professionalism exhibited before, during and after the learning experiences. My journey through TLC ran smoothly and with ease; Debbie's high sense of loyalty and passion towards the program are highly contagious which created in me and my colleagues a sense of responsibility and commitment for both content and process while preserving our identity throughout. The support system she creates around us is so helpful making us feel safe as we progress through initial implementation, trying to find our own path and voice with TLC.
