Nick (Naeem) Noorani
Chair- Panel on Employment Challenges of New Canadians, Ministry of Employment & Social Development.
Debbie was my Business Adviser when I started the Self Employment Program at the YMCA Vancouver/Burnaby. She was extremely knowledgeable and ... was instrumental in the success of the Canadian Immigrant Magazine. Much after the course was over, Debbie helped me in rolling out the business and eventually selling the magazine three years later to the Toronto Star. Debbie has the unique ability to have both the micro and the thousand foot view of issues and has helped me several times by suggesting a different perspective and way of addressing complex challenges. Debbie is an astute marketer and sales coach and has a genuine interest in watching entrepreneurs succeed. And to achieve that she will go not just the extra mile, but several hundred miles. I know because I have experienced her generosity as a coach, a mentor and a friend.
