“All voices are heard and make a profound difference in our communities and around the world”……This is Deb Shapiro’s personal mission. For over a decade, Deb has developed the talents and businesses of some of the top keynote and motivational speakers in our industry. In 2017, she created a speaker development experience called DEBx designed to show emerging speakers how to use their voice as a powerful instrument of change. Through onstage appearances and professional recordings, DEBx has touched tens of thousands of lives…and counting. As a natural extension of this work, Deb went on to found Amplify Voices, designed to discover and amplify the voices of those who have been historically silenced, misunderstood and oppressed. Prior to her 13-year stint in the speaking business, Deb oversaw the human resources operations for an HR consulting firm in Chicago and designed programs for the development of leaders and employees within Bose Corporation. Deb graduated cum laude from the School of Management at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and attended Oxford University. Deb is an avid volunteer and cherishes the many friends and relationships cultivated over the years. She is proud to be a daughter, sister, girlfriend, and member of this crazy human race!
