About Me

Hi! I’m Debbie Roberts and I am a business consultant who is very much a ‘people person’; I have a passion for connecting and engaging with people and I have built a strong and expansive network over the past 30 years.

During my time living and working across Greater Sydney, I have established a strong network of contacts in the areas of business, health, education, not-for-profits, charities, hospitality, local and state government, and economic development.

I have been fortunate enough to have worked for a variety of organisations including NSW Business Connect Program, Camden Council, Camden Region Economic Taskforce, Ronald McDonald House Westmead, Youth Solutions, TAFE NSW, NSW Correctional Services, South West Sydney Local Health District, Fairfield City Council & Liverpool Hospital.

I can advise you on all aspects of business practice and identify areas of opportunity – and I can introduce you to the right specialists where there is an area in which you could achieve increased results with the use of other external consultants.

I value integrity, am proud of my respected reputation within business and community circles, and I am willing to go above and beyond to help you achieve success.

From:

  • SWOT Analysis;
  • creating practical strategies; 
  • goal setting; 
  • strategic planning;
  • business and Not for Profit coaching and advisory: and
  • user-friendly business plans.

to assisting with:

  • stakeholder engagement;
  • marketing;
  • fundraising and sponsorship management;
  • grant writing, EOI’s & tenders;
  • award submission writing;
  • governance; and
  • business policies, processes and systems.

Community

I have always been an active member of my community and personally feel this is the best way to help businesses and organisations succeed, while also making a difference in a community I care about. The unique insights, understanding and lasting connections that this approach has provided really has been a critical success factor in my career.

I am presently on the boards of Victress Connection and Wollondilly Women in Business, and on the Mater Dei Foundation Committee. I have been on other boards such as the South Western Sydney Local Health District, the Rotary Club of Narellan, and the Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce and Industry. I was also a mentor with the Interchange Student Mentoring Program.

I am a proud member of the Picton Chamber of Commerce, Wollondilly Women in Business Network, and Women with Altitude.

I am a friend of Girls on Fire Inc, and providing consultancy services to help them grow. Girls on Fire Inc is a charity who is creating a sustainable movement of empowered women, diverse allies and resilient management communities in fire and emergency services. They empower young girls and women to find future work and volunteering pathways, and greater community connection through learning firefighting and disaster management skills.
