Deb Boelkes is the award-winning author of The WOW Factor Workplace: How to Create a Best Place to Work Culture; Heartfelt Leadership: How to Capture the Top Spot and Keep on Soaring; and Women on Top: What’s Keeping You From Executive Leadership? 

With 30 years climbing the career ladder within male-dominated Fortune 150 technology firms, Deb knows firsthand the challenges women, in particular, can face in their efforts to reach the top. That’s why in 2009 she founded the leadership development firm, Business World Rising—originally called Business Women Rising—to accelerate the advancement of high-potential women and men to the top of “Best Place to Work” organizations.

In The WOW Factor Workplace Deb changed our expectations for achieving joy and fulfillment from our jobs. In Heartfelt Leadership, she changed our expectations of those who lead. Women on Top will transform the way women pursue their careers and awaken those who believe in them.

Deb speaks to corporations, industry associations, and universities the world over—both on stage and as a podcast guest expert—on career advancement, leadership development, and creating best place to work organizations. She is regularly quoted and featured on radio and in publications ranging from CNN Business and Thrive Global to Diversity MBA Magazine, Advancing Women and Hombre.

Deb has worked with clients as diverse as the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Women in Technology International, Experian, Merrill Lynch, Smashbox Cosmetics, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Toshiba, Junior Achievement, and beyond.

Deb received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and her MBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Rhode Island. She lives on Amelia Island in northeast Florida with her husband, Chris. Together, they have three grown sons and four granddaughters.
