An expert in untethering businesses from IT systems no longer fit for purpose, Deborah recently rebuilt one bank’s current account business from scratch in under a year. She is an advocate for gender equality who seeks to create mentoring and sponsorship opportunities for future female technologists.
Being a leader means many different things to many different people, but for me I see it as helping other people be the best they can be.
