Debbie Hargreaves Consulting is owned and managed by me, Debbie Hargreaves. I was born and bred in Durban, South African where I lived, worked and raised my family until relocating to Dorset in 2018.
With more than forty years’ experience in the public sector industry, I have learnt a few things about people. My work in for the KZN Sharks Board in South Africa allowed me to develop my public speaking skills. I would spend my days presenting and educating visitors, adapting seamlessly to whomever I was speaking to, whether they were four or eighty-four.
Having relocated from South Africa to the UK in 2018, one of the things that struck me was the difference in culture. The British way of doing things is very different to what I had known my entire life, and that took some getting used to!
Many of the courses that I run through Debbie Hargreaves Consulting are set up to specifically target niche areas, such as moving from a different country or leaving University and starting work. These can be very daunting transitional phases, so having a few tricks up your sleeve in terms of etiquette and being aware of the standards that are going to be expected of you will help you feel confident moving into this next chapter of your life.
