Deborah Labbate Business Solutions helps SMEs achieve their ambitions, develops business owners, works with Employee Engagement and can act as your Non-Executive Director.
With a straightforward, no nonsense approach I work with business owners and their teams to drive growth using the tried, tested and proven ideas I've worked with myself.
I've successfully exited from one business and under some distress from another.
All the lessons learned have gone in to the experience pot and I would be pleased to share this with you.
I've often been called a confidante, or a critical business friend and sometimes a 'Secret Weapon'.
It really doesn't have to be lonely at the top! I know what that can feel like - I've been there!
Qualifications: I have various, but experience at the coal face of an SME is what I find really counts when it comes to the day to day of running a business and planning for the future.

I started working with Deborah about 6 months into my new business journey after meeting her through a regular event she held in Nottingham. Deborah has a very similar professional background to me so was a perfect match for the support I needed early on in my business. I had little clear direction with my business and needed support figuring out where I was going. The program we worked through has given me a huge increase in confidence, helping me find a clear direction and helped to shape a brand new product to launch in the near future. I was given tools at every hurdle along the way. Thank you for your support Deborah, I have no doubt that your help & guidance has been an invaluable part of my start-up journey. More...
A true professional with a heart of gold. Alicia X
Deborah is a true gem! I attended a Workshop a few months ago. I saw things in a different light, mainly on a personal level. Which completely shocked me. The workshops show you how to focus and truly believe in yourself, once you have achieved that, the world is your oyster. I would definitely recommend Deborah to everyone, well I was hoping she was going to be MY secret weapon - but it's important to share. More...
I met Deborah a few weeks ago at an event about the art of Networking. Deborah’s speech and tips about pushing your business forward, developing your skills and confidence, really inspired me to take that leap and push myself out of my comfort zone. If I get the chance again, I will definitely attend another event where Deborah is speaking. Thank you Deborah for your advice, you have given me the confidence to move forward and explore new avenues. More...
Deborah is, simply put.....Fantastic!
I cannot recommend her or the workshop I attended highly enough.
As busy business owners, we work day and night in our business and rarely take the time to evaluate our goals and visions.
This workshop really had a 'WOW FACTOR' for me. It allowed me to take stock of what I am doing and more importantly what I would like to achieve. It was a superb session to gain clarity and focus ahead of the coming year.
Deborah's approach is outstanding, she is very welcoming and organised. She injects an element of magic into what she does. I came away from this workshop feeling highly motivated, clear and focused. I would urge anybody in business to take the time to attend this. No matter what line of business you are in, it is a highly worthwhile workshop to attend. I will look forward to attending other workshops by Deborah Labbate. She brings out the best in people, you really cannot ask for more. Thank You Deborah for helping to give me focus and clarity, I believe this will help my business to reach new heights.
I shall certainly be attending more training sessions with Deborah in the future. More...
