Here’s a bit of background info on the panelists:

Debra Chantry-Taylor

Debra is a business coach and mentor and is no stranger to adversity, perseverance & growing business in challenging times. Having started her community & events business in June 2017, she experienced a series of unexpected tragedies including losing her brother without any warning and nursing her mother through terminal cancer.

Deb forged on building the business while and while the original business model failed & in amongst all this she managed to pivot the business & turn it into a profitable events space which became known as one of the most original & exciting events spaces in Auckland, with businesses from around the world booking the space to do their product launches & business social events.

Unfortunately the event space ended up being a casualty of Covid-19 & is currently in hibernation however Debra used her learnings & experience to continue to grow her leadership coaching business. She now works with business owners & their leadership teams, using the Entrepreneurial Operating System, to help them build a better life through better business, even through challenging times. Throughout the lockdown Debra launched Business Support & Survival Volunteers – a free service matching experienced business professionals with businesses that needed help.
