Once ranked among the top ten U.S. women divers, Deborah Bright’s career in platform and springboard Olympic competition ended suddenly when doctors discovered retinal tears in both eyes. Were she to continue, blindness would be the inevitable result. Deborah then used the experiences of her years in competitive diving as the foundation of her insights into the architecture underlying individual performance. In the years that followed, she emerged as a nationally recognized expert in the fields of stress management, communication skills, management and leadership development, and the intangible ingredients behind exceptional performance.
Besides appearing on national television and radio, including top talk shows and Bloomberg Radio, Dr. Bright frequently appears as the keynote speaker at national conferences and meetings of business executives sponsored by the American Management Association, World Business Council, the Young Presidents Organization, Entrepreneur’s Organization, Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year, the Family Business Forum, and The Executive Committee (TEC).

She also works closely with the Professional Golfers’ Association of America and Tournament Players Clubs, helping professional golfers to improve both competitive focus and management skills. Off the greens, Deborah coaches executives one-to-one on how best to lead in today’s rapidly changing business environment.
