Debbe Kennedy is a master problem solver; author; virtual speaker; and founder, president, and CEO of the Leadership Solutions Companies, an award-winning women-owned enterprise since 1990, specializing in custom leadership, organizational, and virtual communications solutions. She is a pioneer and innovator in people-focused leadership–employee communications in virtual space, including creative uses of Web 2.0 technologies, and other social media. The hallmark of Leadership Solutions Companies’ contributions is reflected in Debbe’s strategic business partnership with Hewlett Packard spanning well over a decade.

This virtual gathering place for people throughout the world has an intentional focus on leadership, professional, and personal development. The Global Dialogue Center’s commitment to expanding opportunities for inclusion throughout the world for all people, with a special focus on bringing its brand of excellence to women’s personal and professional development, leadership, and mentoring, was the inspiration behind the 2005 addition of Women in the Lead, a unique resource center for women worldwide.

Debbe knows the leader’s journey. She has experienced it as a successful entrepreneur, a change-leading strategic partner for Fortune 100 executives and managers, a pioneer of working in virtual space, and in a distinguished leadership career with IBM Corporation for over twenty years.
