Debbie Lewis

With almost 30 years of salon industry experience; two decades of that as a business owner and eight years educating and coaching hair and beauty professionals, Debbie is perfectly placed to educate on all aspects of enterprise.

Having experienced both incredible highs and crushing lows personally, grown a team from three to 47 employees in the salon sector across multiple sites, almost lost her home to bad business decisions and bounced back to ‘8X’ and successfully exit her salon after a double dip recession. 

Debbie knows the value of coaching having leant on a mentor and coach to achieve business success, endless awards, and eventual acquisition. 

Following her salon sale Debbie joined NatWest in the Enterprise Team supporting sector and stage agnostic businesses to start, grow and scale across England.

Debbie has completed over 3500 hours of 121 and group coaching, is an accredited coach and qualified educator, specialises in funding and finance, sales and marketing, creating and maintaining team culture through incredible leadership and the power of mindset. 

She regularly contributes to business press and media, a renowned UK speaker -having supported Theo Paphitis and his SBS community for the last three years, headlined at the Facebook ‘She Means Business’ conference, Meta business events and British Chambers of Commerce- and is a respected industry awards judge, speaker and writer.
