Debra Peppers, Ph.D. Florida
Dr. Debra Peppers

If you are looking for a real "pepper upper" to ignite, challenge and inspire your group, then look no further! Dr. Debra Peppers "sizzles" with her unique message individualized and tailor-made just for your group! Her blend of humor, powerful inspiration, enthusiasm and unequaled energy are passed on to her audiences. They leave not only motivated and uplifted, but also with practical tools and insight to turn their own lives toward a more positive and productive path.

"From Troubled Teen to Teacher of the Year" read the headline when Debra Peppers was one of only five inducted into the National Teachers' Hall of Fame. As a troubled teen, Debra was a 250-lb. high school dropout who could have "fallen through the cracks." But with the love of her parents and a special teacher, "Miss Alma" (story published in Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul), her life was radically turned around. Losing over 100 pounds, receiving a BA in English, an MA in Education, and a Ph.D. in Communication, Dr. Peppers now inspires audiences all over the world.

Having traveled in all 50 states and 50 countries, she loves to share her strategies for initiating change by goal setting and problem-solving. She emphasizes the importance of finding balance in our lives and offers a step-by-step plan to implement it! Dr. Peppers shares real-life success stories from her radio and TV interviews as well as from some of the 10,000 students she has taught. She addresses real life issues on her daily 3-hour radio program, aptly titled "Talk From the Heart with Dr. Peppers." She also hosts a weekly television segment, "Shakin' the Salt with Dr. Peppers!"

Dr. Peppers' professional and personal credibility, as well as her charismatic presentation style, makes her a favorite of audiences everywhere! As a professional speaker for over 25 years, having addressed groups of 20 to 3,500, Dr. Peppers has presented to audiences worldwide. From a small rural Alabama school to the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, to schools in Africa - or keynoting at the Crystal Cathedral's International Women's Conference, Dr. Peppers is the "real thing," ... at home wherever she is!

Debra Peppers adapts her presentation personally for each audience, often incorporating original poems and parodies. Presentations include over 1,000 business, community and educational groups, as well as keynoting banquets and business meetings. Debra teaches workshops and faculty courses for many universities and colleges across the country, and customizes break-out sessions for any group.

  • Stumbling Blocks to Stepping Stones - Incorporating stories of famous past "failures", this motivational presentation is three-fold: to examine and face "stumbling blocks"- even tragedies in our own lives; to determine ways and find tools to get past our past; and to use the trials of the past to help others overcome as well! Debra presents tested ideas for improvement in both our personal and professional lives. She leaves the audience with renewed hope, tools and a plan to institute change!

  • On Fire or Burned Out - This hard-hitting presentation is a "wake-up call" for each of us to make daily attitude adjustments. Learning how our physiological and intellectual responses are often dictated by our emotions, Dr. Peppers gives examples and practical tools for becoming proactive instead of reactive. Strategies for personal communication skills in dealing with even the most difficult people in the most difficult situations, leave the audience with great fuel for preventing "burn out".

  • Can't We All Just Get Along? - In both our professional and personal lives, we waste so much time and energy trying to figure out why those around us act the way they do - and why we react accordingly! Once we realize that we all have different personality styles, we can use our individual limitations as well as our unique gifts in all situations. Debra demonstrates the importance of interpersonal communication skills and the necessity for being interdependent so we can "synergize" and work together for good. By using learned approaches to our differences, the most difficult people among us can be reached.
